• I visited Typo a little while ago but i haven’t had a chance to download my pix, so my apologies for the lateness of this post. It was a little tricky as I hired a driver dude for the day and he pushed me around Canal Walk and various other places in a wheelchair as i sourced for work. So although i was MAD about everything i saw in Typo, i’m a bit sad because i only spent about half an hour there and could easily have oohed and ahhed and droooled for another hour. The driver/pusher-of-wheelchair man was looking most confused as i squealed at yet another colourful something…

    I did a fair amount of shopping at Typo – i bought the prettiest iPad cover for R90, notebooks i definitely don’t need but wanted and change purses too. I bought LOADS for the kids – their birthdays are coming up so that was great and i can’t wait to see their expressions. If you are into stationery and i know so many of you are as obsessed as i am, then give yourself some time to browse and drool and buy…in fact, i had to laugh because that afternoon i popped into my friend Chloe’s house as she broke her ankle not long after i broke my foot and she had bought a shedload of stuff at Typo i hadn’t even seen…so factor in some time my fellow stationery sl*ts, you’ll need it!

    Where to find it: Typo is situated in Canal Walk, 104 Lower Level Canal Walk  021 552 2635

    They’re closest to Entrance 4

      PLEASE tell me that there’s a store like this in Europe. When I went to Cape Town last year (LOVED IT), I didn’t know about this!

    31. iwantthat on

      Paula, you are totally spoilt in Europe – not sure where you live but there’s Paperchase (there’s a great sale on at the moment), then there’s Muji, where to start on the fabulousness…then there’s Ordning + Reda for the best notebooks ever!

    32. Paula J Cairns on

      MUJI! Of course! And I also completely forgot about Paperchase. I go to the UK a lot, but I don’t think I’ll return in time for the sale. Thanks for the thoughttful reply.

      I JUST came from Typo CW, bought an awesome Beatles themed mug. Anything Beatles I’m sold! I’m obsessed with stationary and now Googled for a website for Typo to check a price for their artist wooden hand model and stumbled upon ur blog. I’m thrilled to be living in Cape Town!

    34. Monica Dart Photography on

      I discovered this ADDICTIVE store in Australia in February….then heard they had opened in South Africa! This has made my year….absolutely…completely!
