Caroline Weaver is a girl after our own hearts. She has been a self-described lover and collector of pencils ever since she was a child. In a bid to share her passion with the world, Caroline opened a online store in 2014 selling a beautiful range of these graphite wonders, and it was such a success that a bricks-and-mortar store was opened in New York’s Lower East Side soon after. As far as Caroline is concerned, pencils have a lot of wonderful qualities: They’re tactile, have a particular smell, feel a certain way, make a special sound, and nothing beats writing with a freshly sharpened pencil. “You can’t get that from any other writing utensil,” she says. Luckily, her store ships worldwide, so you can stock up to your stationery heart’s content.
