Roseburg Book and Stationery

I love this store! It's in Roseburg's little downtown, and it's within a bike ride of my house--and trust me, I'm a chubby little thing, so I can't bike very far. The store actually opened in 1910, and for a good amount of time this winter, they had a window display built of old office supply goods that they still have in storage from the early 1900s. They may have frowned on the moderate amount of drooling I couldn't control as I inspected it all, nose pressed to the windows, eyes wild with covetous desire.

Roseburg Book & Stationery is now a Hallmark store + a scrapbooking store with a little rubber stamping corner, but they do still sell office supplies and office furniture, too. I love shopping here when I can--their prices are competitive, and I would rather buy the occasional ink pad or handful of coin envelopes or patterned paper or package of map pins here than at Staples or Michael's.

And frankly, who WOULDN'T love this sign--I want that large fountain pen in my house! :) http://www.roseburgbook.com/Aboutus.asp

  1. What a funny sign to find. I remember shopping there more than 50 years ago. Weber's Bakery, a foreign country whose incense pervaded the street, was close by and a school was across the street and down a block or so. . .

    What a funny sign to see.
