Cute Stationery in Seoul.

mmmg cards
If you are like me and love stationery then I can safely say Seoul will cater for your needs. The note book is huge here which is nice to see when so many hi tech gadgets drive the city. There is a trend for customised note books. You can pick up a note book that looks like it came from an antiques market and old travel tickets and sweets wrappers are pasted in the pages giving each note book its individual style. I found some of these great note books in Seoul each page different and cute Icons.
There are cute little sationery stores with their own individual look. If you don’t have much time head to Kyobo Book store it's a huge store and one floor dedicated to just stationery and gifts. I love their cute bird logo. They have a huge section of English books also. Address: Seoul , South Korea Kyobo Bookstore1 Chongno 1-gaJongno-guSeoul http://www.kyobobook.co.kr/index.laf May have heard of this great Korean design company Millimetre Milligram as their products seem to be popping up everywhere in blog world. I was so excited to be able to see their products in real life I found their little store but also they have a great selection at Kyobo. I love their design modern and quite Scandinavian in look here are some examples. Good news you can buy their products on-line. http://ex.mmmg.net/mmmg/mmmg.html

Shop Til You Drop Seoul

My biggest impression about Seoul was that Koreans love to shop. It’s a national sport and all methods of shopping happen 24 hrs a day. From the night markets with endless stalls and shops selling racks of dresses, shoes, bags and T shirts Good or bad news is that they fit my size 12 western frame so good news for me not so good news for the credit card. On the metro there are shopping stops next to the ticket machines for bargain clothes. People shopping in their cars watching TV shopping, on their phones and shopping on-line. You can dive into your local Post office shop on-line and pick up the goods at the same outlet. All your designer brands are their also from the gorgeous department stores with glittering gold and marble interiors like Lotte Department store. It was so nice to see the winter trends from Europe. I think if the dogs could use the internet they would too as they where well catered for in the clothing and lifestyle front. My favourite shops where the small independent boutiques with local designers. So cute and each with their own individual personality. Most stores are like a work of art in themselves not just selling clothes but cute home wares stationary and objects source from around the world. Here are some pictures of some of the cute stores in Seoul.
