A Visit to the University of Minnesota Bookstore

I love a bookstore that has an insane amount of notebooks and pens. Welcome to the University of Minnesota Bookstore (Minneapolis).

On the right we have a long aisle of notebooks - all sizes and bindings.This is one of the few places where you can buy a left-handed notebook.
On the backside of the same aisle are even more notebooks and some folders! The selection doesn't get any better than this.
Notebooks are everywhere!
On the left we have an aisle of pens, pencils and markers. As a good pen store does, they have slips of paper available so that the pens can be sampled.
I must have spent two hours at the store. They do have quite a bit of other items for sale such as gift items, school clothing, etc. It's a wonderfully laid out store with a wide selection of items. Index cards, anyone?
They also had some name brand notebooks including Rhodia, Moleskin Clairefontaine, and Leuchtturm1917.
Where do you find the best selection of pens and notebooks for brick and mortar stores?

That's an impressive store and my area has nothing to rival it. The best brick and mortar places for paper pleasure are Barnes and Noble and Allard's Art. Temptation is great enough there; it's just as well I live no where near the University of Minnesota.

In Stockholm, Sweden where I live, we have Pen Store. Lots and lots of pens, and quite some journals and notebooks as well (brands such as Leuchtturm1917, Moleskine, Rhodia and more).

Thanks for sharing! Yes, I do go to Barnes and Noble too- they have lovely journals and notecards there. That pen store looks amazing! I will add it to my Someday book. Yesterday I had added Moleskin Cafe- Geneva (although any would be acceptable).
