Unpack: A Journaling Open-House + Notebook Showcase

Our first feature event of 2019 is a launch of not one, but EIGHT new brands at Phidon! Over the course of our travels in the past year, our team scoured the planet to find unique, high-quality paper products and have been eagerly anticipating their introduction to the Phidon community. Featured brands will include Notem (Denmark), Kakimori (Japan), Laika (Mexico), Ecojot (Canada), and more! Local bookbinder Alistair MacLellan will be visiting our store that day to show you the latest collaboration between MacLellan Books and Phidon: a much requested Tomoe River Paper notebook. He will hold a short Q&A session to explain his work process and how his beautiful notebooks are made.

We also welcome local creatives Kata Law & Heather Franklin, who will be co-hosting a journaling open-house. Bring your own journals and we’ll provide the supplies for you to sketch, draw and write alongside these two amazing artists. They will be sharing tips and inspiration for unleashing your daily creativity.

Refreshments will be provided, so come join us for a fantastic day of stationery fun!
