it was shocking and sad news to hear about the closing of one of my favorite shops here in new york, mrs. john l. strong. not only will i miss the 80-year-old luxury paper line and visiting their barney's boutique, in particular, but i worry so much about what this means for the 'state of paper' and our little stationery world, niche-y as it is. hopefully this will remind and inspire all of us to seek out the special, independent businesses, to support their hard work, and to use our buying power to keep afloat the shops we love so much.
