I don’t even know where to begin, but Mac & Murphy is a stationery shop to die for. I mean…!!!! No words. Their paper goodies are absolutely delightful and so invigorating.
But first, the bad news: Mac & Murphy is in South Carolina (~4,068 miles from London) 😦 The good news is, however, that there is this wonderful thing called the Internet and all her related social media feeds. You’ll be fine. We hope.
Mac & Murphy is located in the historic Cannonbourogh neighbourhood of Charleston, SC. Most of my favourite American interiors-related imports are from Charleston, so I’m really not surprised at all that M&M is also a local to that fantastic city. There is something of a Southern trendy vibe going on there – it’s most certainly not hipster, and it combines my two loves – olden charm and modern design. Stationery is, to my mind, a quick and easy way of injecting colour and style into your home – a jar of multi-coloured pencils/pens on the desk, a clever print on the wall, a stack of notebooks on the shelf, and your home looks magazine fresh!
M&M stock some of the coolest stationery designers ever, so you won’t be surprised to see Rifle Paper Co. tucked amongst the beautiful merchandise displays (check out our favourite Rifle Paper Co. products here, btw). There are also plenty of locally sourced prints, wrapping papers, cards…
One of my favourite things about M&M is the playful sense of enjoyment and mischief the store (and the owners) manages to have – even the online store on the website captures that same quirky and fun feel. Will make you smile while browsing.
If you are a bit of a stationery fiend (like us), M&M have a monthly card club where you get 3 greeting cards delivered to you each month – cards includ occasions like birthdays, thank yous, and something sweet or witty. Hop on over to their site to have a look!
