Papers Coma – Stationery and Party Supplies

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.

Good product. Bad packaging.

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!

I sometimes write about things that interest or inspire me, and that I think might interest and inspire other people. I prefer blogs as a medium (rather than Medium, Twitter, Instagram etc) partly because of the longer format but mostly because of the ability to hyperlink to other interesting and useful sources, which to me seems more true to the 'spirit of the internet' than proprietary sites that try their hardest to keep you within their own domain. Comments welcome.
