My Kawaii Stationary Collection!

All images can be clicked for larger versions

Many years ago, I had a penpal (well, mostly e-mailing though) called Izumi whom I found on One day, we decided to send each other packages with things from each other's country. She asked me if I had any favorite characters and I immediately said "Mamegoma!". Months later, I received a little package with many little goodies including a little Mamegoma memo pad. It sparked my kawaii stationary craze!

My first memo pad. Maybe like 4 years old?
Almost used up all the paper ;3;
99% of my stationary (I think I lost my favorite memo pad!)
Most of my stationary has been acquired once I moved to NYC. There's a nice Japanese bookstore near Bryant Park called Kinokuniya (chain of bookstores, 7 of which are here in the USA). I found out about it through a friend who is also a fan of Japanese culture. She told me that they not only sold books but also kawaii products such as stationary and plushies!

Do you collect anything? What do you collect?
