Best Boutique to Buy a Fancy Notebook and Freak Out About Your Organizational Skills (or Lack Thereof)
Jenni Bick Custom Journals
1300 Connecticut Ave. NW, Suite 101, (202) 721-0246
I consider myself a fairly organized person—a plus for a writer—but when I walk into this newly opened custom journal store in Dupont Circle, I immediately feel shame for not being more so. It’s a stationary enthusiast’s dream with modern flair: Notebooks of all different colors and styles adorn shelves along the walls and tables at arm’s reach—some leather, others moleskine. Many of Jenni’s products, from bound books to tailor-made albums, will set a customer back dozens of dollars; the highest-quality ones, more than a hundred. These are no grammar school supplies, after all. Note to self: Never waste a single page.
