We’ve all been there: working with a pen that’s almost out of ink, a notebook that has only a handful of pages left, or a folder that’s on its last leg. Working with materials like these is a threat to the entire creative process. Not only can they fall apart or run out of space at any minute, but if you have a great idea and want to map it out, you’ll be out of luck if your pen suddenly decides to stop writing. A key part of being prepared for your meeting is having materials at your disposal that will be reliable and inspire your creativity. Typing notes on your phone or computer isn’t the same as planning out a project on paper, which is why it’s important to make sure your inventory doesn’t fall short. These are our favorite places in SoHo where you can go to make sure you’re well-prepared for your next SoHo creative meeting:
This Japanese store offers a wide range of useful products – from stationery to typical household items. With locations in only a handful of states, we are lucky to have MUJI just one block away from our SoHo creative meeting spaces. What we love about MUJI is its minimalist theme; all their items look chic, clean, and practical, which is a good mix of qualities when searching for reliable materials. Stop in to grab a notebook in any size, or a few pens to make sure you’re well-supplied.
- Paper Source
Only two blocks north of our SoHo creative meeting spaces, Paper Source is a one-stop shop for all your stationery needs. If you’re just visiting the area, you can grab a quirky gift or postcard as a souvenir, or pick up a new planner to refine your organizational skills. You can even try out items like pens or stamps before you buy them to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want.
Also a mere two blocks away, Papyrus is Paper Source’s neighbor and a fellow retailer of all your meeting needs. It’s the perfect place to pick up any last minute stationery, notepads, pens, or other items you may need for your SoHo creative meeting. Papyrus also has a great selection of greeting cards and postcards if you’re looking for a something unique to send your loved ones. The store doubles as a fun gift shop, with a selection of books and other little gifts that you can only find in SoHo. It’s a practical and fun option to pick up what you’ll need for your meeting, as well as a SoHo souvenir for yourself or your loved ones.
While SoHo offers an endless number of options for ensuring that you’re well-prepared for the work day, these are our favorites because of their top-notch products and service. Not to mention they’re only steps from our SoHo creative meeting spaces! Next time you’re in the area make sure you stop in at one (or all) of these locations and stock up on your meeting necessities.
