Follow Friday: Present & Correct’s advent calendar

This year, stationery connoisseurs Present And Correct are celebrating Christmas in style - vintage style to be precise! 

We previously featured Present & Correct at the very beginning of our Follow Friday series. In the post, we layed out all the reasons to give them a follow. However, on the 1st of December they added another BIG reason to the list. They released their #PNCAdventCalendar, featuring a physical paperclip  day! For those who didn’t manage to get their hands on one – they are also running an alternative version online. Each day via their Twitter page, they are posting a different photo of a piece of vintage stationery, for stationery addicts all over the world.

Day 3 of #PNCAdventCalendar

The festive series of snaps has so far included reindeer posters from the 1960s, and Japanese Santa coasters from the 1970s. Present & Correct’s calendar is definitely one of the more niche out there. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea with many preferring calendars of the chocolate variety. However, given the popularity of #stationeryaddict as a hashtag, we imagine it will do pretty well.

There is an ever-growing army of stationery addicts across the world who would take a well composed photograph of a vintage stamp over a piece of cheap chocolate any day!
