Attention all stationery addicts – visit Little Paper Lane. NOW!

No seriously, stop reading this and go {1751 Pittwater Road, Mona Vale, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches}.LPL blog #2Every nook of this gorgeous little store is jam-packed with goodness.  From one of the largest washi tape collections I’ve ever seen, to beautiful, unique greeting cards designed in-house by store owner Jayde Leeder and her graphic designer husband, Steve.LPL blog #1While the store is tiny, you will want to set some time aside when you visit.  Every shelf is overflowing with amazingness – from wrapping paper, ribbons, notepads, desk accessories, tissue paper pom-poms, invitations, gift tags, bakers twine in every imaginable colour and even a watermelon rug.  A true visual feast.  With Jayde’s lovely mum working regularly on the shop floor and Jayde and Steve’s adorable kids {check out #classicminty on Little Paper Lane’s Instagram feed for a cuteness overload}, popping in and out, this is one family run store you must check out!LPL blog #5LPL blog #6LPL blog #4If you can’t get to the store, Little Paper Lane has a fantastic online store, but beware – you are likely to browse for hours and hours! Enjoy.LPL blog #3LPL blog #9Once you have purchased your weight in stationery, you will no doubt have built up an appetite.  Pop next door to MX for the most amazing burritos. When I visited, MX, the new addition to the Mexicano family, was being welcomed with one of Little Paper Lane’s famous window displays.  MX has a substantive menu, however I choose to ask one of the enthusiastic staff members what they recommended and the chicken & rice burrito with sour cream and guacamole was one of the best lunches I’ve ever had.  Coffee and liquor will also be served soon.  Get there!LPL blog #7MX blog #1
