Out of office untill May 16th

Dear All,

We will be on a break untill May 16th.

We will enjoy the glorious looks over de Great Wall of China, look eye to eye with a Terracotta Warior and finish off mesmerizing over the highrise of The Bund in Shanghai. We look forward to it.

For all you who 'collect' customs stamps in your passport, please go to our store here, and buy yourself this Midori Customize! Stamp (two kinds for variation!).

Please note: Our shop will be closed, but all order made during our holiday will be dispatched upon returning home, from May 17th onwards. 

NEW In our store NOW #4 Midori Traveler's Notebook 5 year anniversary limited edition

The leather notebook itself is of this rich and warm camel coloured leather, with the same thickness as the other types.

The 5 year anniversary range has a Customize! theme, with the idea that you can now also personalize your Midori Traveler's Notebook on the inside (with all the possible fillings) but also on the outside:

Charm your elastic band, by either using the spare green emerald one, or with the beads pack. This pack has several colours of elastic bands plus an assortment of wooden and metal beads. Or use the metal charms of leather tags for this purpose. The leather tag is of the same camel leather as the notebook.

Or use one of 5 stickerpacks to decorate the paper covers of your journals:

Join us in helping Japan!

Join us in helping Japan!  

Miscellaneous-store is donating a share of its revenues of the coming month to the Japanese Red Cross. 

We are busy folding origami cranes. Of every crane we will donate 100% to the Japanese Red Cross. These origami cranes have a handwritten thank you message and are available in white, kraft and a variety of light coloured paper. You can help and buy your origami crane here.

In Japan the Crane bird represents longevity, hope, happiness and contentment (of satisfaction). Traditionally they will fold a thousand Crane birds in times of illness or other misfortune. During the process all of the folder's postive energy will be sent to whomever needs it.

Brigitta, of Miscellaneous, was in Tokyo at the time of the first earthquake on March 11th 2011: "I was in a train near Yokohama at the time of the first quake. At first I did not realize the shaking was a earthquake. Only when I stepped out of the vehicle it hit me. However I only learned about the severity of the earthquake many hours later." She returned safely to Amsterdam, but wants to contribute: "With this gesture I would like to support Japan in their fight. We need to help each other in such times."

New in our store NOW #3 Midori Brass products

From today we finally will be carrying the Midori Brass series.

The Midori Brass series is a stationary line made of solid brass. With your use, the brass itself will wear out, resulting in a beautiful personlized tool. Like the leather of the Midori Traveler's Notebook, these Brass products 'age well' and become more beautiful than ever.

Use, observe and love your brass tools.

The Midori Brass clips are simplye but gorgeous clips that you can use as a bookmark or to hold on to a set of papers or small tickets and receipts. 

The Midori Brass Ruler is a perfect tool for those who like measuring small objects, or need a small product at hand to play with when brainstorming. You know, those OCD types...

The pencil and pens resemble a bullet case at first sight. Assemble the writing tools and start open fire for your stream of words. 
The Midori Brass Ballpoint pen is really a nice fine and delicate tip of a pen and fits perfectly in your hand. 

The Midori Brass Pencil is a nice HB pencil. The refill pack consists of 3 pencil refills and two eraser refills.  You can also use old & short pencils. How about that reduce/re-use/recycle Jack Johnsen?

Finally, all Brass products fit nicely in this Midori Brass Pencase. 180 grams of solid brass will guard your tools, plus it will be the top item on your desk others will have their eye on.

Buy your Midori Brass tool in Amsterdam (The Property of... // Tenue de Nimes // Friday Next), Rotterdam (ANSH47), Arnhem (Jones Arnhem) and Antwerp (Graanmakrt 13 // Copyright Bookstore) and ofcourse in our online miscellaneous-store.com
