As you read this, Jim and I are probably in the city or en route!
I decided to take the day off so we could spend the day together in NYC – We plan on grabbing lunch at Les Halles (yes, Anthony Bourdain’s home base) then spending the afternoon wandering around the Museum of Natural History (so stoked). I can’t remember the last time we took a day off to have a good time and just enjoy each other’s company … This is a much needed mini-getaway.
Anyway! In my absence, I wanted to share photos of some recent packaging materials I purchased:
I was in dire need of twine so I bought a couple (hundred) yards – Loving the pale grey color.
I also treated myself to two rolls of washi tape! Now, I usually secure each tissue-wrapped package with a home-stamped sticker, but I felt like shaking it up a bit with these little rolls of goodness.
I can honestly say wrapping each item for shipment is one of my favorite things about running my shop – I love knowing that that extra layer of paper adds a little intrigue when the recipient opens his or her package …
What are your feelings on packaging? Do you have fun with it? Or do you think it’s unnecessary?
