Hello friends. I'm currently listening to Wild Nothing, which is a band a friend told me about yesterday and I love it. Make sure you listen to their song "Summer Holiday"!

So, Artbox. Artbox started about 20 years ago in South Korea, and they must have had their fair share of success, since they now have three stores in London: one in Camden Town (which you can see on the pictures below), one in the Thomas Neal Center in Covent Garden, and another in the Topshop located in Oxford Circus.

As you can see they mainly sell stationery (notebooks, pens, pencil cases, etc.), but you can also find some clothes and accessories (and by 'accessories' I mean everything else, like mugs, bento boxes, etc.). Of course, almost everything they sell here is full of little animals having fun in the beach and stuff like that, but it's worth taking a look. You can always find really nice stuff even if you're not really into the whole Hello Kitty thing. I usually enjoy the stickers:

I can't believe how hard it is nowadays to find beautiful stickers. When I was a kid I used to collect them and I still have some pretty neat ones, but I recently tried to find shark stickers like the ones they sold at SandyLion (I'm writing this as if you all knew which ones I'm talking about... they ruled) and I've had no luck. One day, when I'm rich, I'll go to Japan with an empty suitcase and come back with tons of awesome stickers and notebooks. Word.
