I’ve just been downstairs to buy new printer paper. Had a bit of a laugh with the family who run the shop about how, while all the non-recycled, bleached paper comes in a plain white packet, the recycled paper which I was buying has the shiniest, most heavily-printed packaging of anything in the whole shop! Some irony.
So apart from the dodgy recycled paper supplier, it’s a great shop that sells everything from art supplies to tin-foil baking dishes, as well as all the basic envelopes, notebooks etc. They also do photocopies, although *not* using the ancient printing machine in the doorway:
The shop is on c/Montcada, just opposite the Picasso Museum and is called Papers Coma. They’ve been there since 1920 and are a family business. I like shopping here because while they will let you happily browse and poke about to your heart’s content, if you can’t find something they are charming and helpful…quite a novelty in Barcelona shops!
