The late, great CW Pencil Enterprise was a boutique pencil shop in NYC. Like so many small shops, they got whacked pretty badly in the pandemic. They tried to make changes to stay afloat, but closed this fall.
One of the last things they sold was their annual pencil advent calendar. This was the first year I was able to get one, as they historically sell out within minutes.
24 envelopes, each with a pencil (or maybe some pencil-related ephemera?). I’m excited.
