Mailing a thoughtful note is an easier way to show someone you care about them than hiring an ode-scripting skywriter or tattooing their name across your forehead. Put ink to paper with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of stationery, journals, and more at TT Patton in Barrington.
TT Patton outfits scribes with stylish stationery, handmade greeting cards, and myriad swanky scrawling supplies. Artisanal accouterments such as Dempsey and Carroll engraved note cards (starting at $45 per box) elegantly adorn the boutique's ancient Asian furnishings, and Noodler's ink ($12.50 per bottle) and Private Reserve fountain cartridges ($6 per package) eagerly await thirsty pens. Moleskine notebooks (starting at $17.95) and Filofax planners (starting at $30) offer sleek, minimalist bookkeeping and, unlike cell phones, won't interrupt meetings by blasting Billy Joel. Intrepid poets can slash through literary jungles with a stylish Lamy Safari fountain pen ($30) and leather journal (starting at $70), documenting exotic words such as catawampus and bananaphone.
