I read about this great pencil shop CW Pencil Enterprise in NYC and fell in love with the online shop. The photos of it are so calm and pleasing. I really wish I could go to the shop in person.
I wanted to order some pencils and erasers for the whole family, but I didn't know where to start. So, I did what my brother would do. I e-mailed the shop owner, Caroline Weaver, and asked if she would pull pencils for me based on my needs and include her favorites. I gave her a price not to exceed. She was so helpful and enthusiastic and wrote detailed notes on all the envelopes separating the pencils by type. We are thrilled and are scribbling away like mad. Happy internet moment! I think she should open a shop here in Portland.
