Orange Art Store Haul

This was my first purchase from OrangeArt Store, and while I have been aware of them for quite some time, I’ve just put off ordering from them until about a week ago at 2am after a glass of sherry.. and my credit card just happened to be in front of me.. so! Yeah.

I ordered it on a Tuesday and it arrived yesterday (Saturday) with these goodies. Pretty quick for $7.50 Retail Flat Rate Shipping.. whatever that is.

Orange Art Store carries a variety of stationery, but the only one I really wanted was from Crown Mill. I had a orange border note card set that I was absolutely in love with and was running out, but simply could not find it anywhere for sale online, and refused to go back to the shop where I got it from (they overprice everything). Thankfully this online US shop has it, or else I’d have to order from the UK.

So I added it to cart as well as a grey version, because I’m going through a grey phase right now.

I also threw in these little cards in white, which on hindsight I thought was absolutely silly, because I hate white cards/envelopes and.. another grey card set. Why..?

And I found these white envelopes in the package.. what was I thinking? I hate white envelopes! Must have been on sale maybe. Anyway, I’d definitely use Orange Store again if I need more stationery, but next time I’ll remember to be sober and order at like 10am. Btw, I am not affiliated with them and do not get any kickbacks from them. I wish I did!
