Day 8: The Learnary's (Not) Back to School Series.

26 Aug 2019 8:33 AM | Sam Mills (Administrator)

What are you going to learn this fall?

Sometimes it's about exploring early stages of writing. The Learnary shop has got you covered: double wide lined note books, gorgeous big pencils (better for holding and not snapping), pencil sharpeners for big and standard pencils that... actually.... work!!!   We also sell replacement blades which fit these and many standard pencil sharpeners, which may be the item in our shop that most delights us. 

To get you in the mood of loving handwriting, check out the Art of Handwriting site as part of the Smithsonian Institute: look how marvellous it can be:

The Learnary is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh people. We are humbled by this history and grateful for our use of this land.
