Choosing Keeping's Scissors

Found these really nice looking scissors over at Choosing Keeping's online store, they're a a small arts and crafts supply company with a physical shop in East London. I've only just became aware of their store a within the last couple of weeks when Yasumi of Workship Blues posted about how nice their shop was, she wasn't fibbing. Choosing Keeping sets itself apart from being just a regular art shop by taking a special interest in the history and functionality of each product they stock, as well as educating us about several individual manufacturers.

Choosing Keeping stock tons of stuff that I'd love to own (especially the staplers), from stationery and gifts to books and records. I've tried to keep this post to just one subject, because if not you'd be scrolling down the blog for about an hour. Choosing Keeping, 128 Columbia Road, London, E2 7RG

  10. Those gold/silver scissors are insane! I'm really digging them which is a bit strange as for i'm not really into things to flashy as such, but for scissors it looks awesome. The staplers they had were pretty cool like you said. The two tone blue one was my favorite.
    I liked this post as for i've neglecting drawing for some time and have recently been getting back to sketching here and there but would like to make it an everyday type thing, especially now that I have the time. Just seeing all the little useful knick knacks sparked some inspiration to get to work.
    Always enjoy these types of posts from you Mat.
