The new Scribe at Glorietta 4

Scribe is one of those stores I can spend a long time in just ooh-ing and aah-ing at the stuff available for sale, pestering the sales assistants with endless questions about this and that, and taking a mental note of everything I wanted to add to my insatiable wish list. I was saddened when their Glorietta 5 store closed and got really excited when I got the invite to their Glorietta 4 store opening!

And it's a lot bigger with more merchandise to ooh and aah at!

The new look of Scribe and its owner Marian Ong
What immediately struck me with the new store is its updated look, starting with the logo. They ditched their longer name Scribe Writing Essentials and stuck with just Scribe and gave it a more modern, sans serif branding but still retaining its identity with the nib serving as the "i" on the logo. The interiors also have a more industrial and open feel to it, giving it a fresher and a more inviting vibe. Marian told me they're also planning to update the look of the other stores soon so watch out for that in the Scribe stores near you!

I thoroughly enjoyed tinkering with the products on display and I'd like to share some of the things I saw that might be of interest to you.

Easy scrapbooking with these ready-made albums. Just insert your photos and voila!
I also saw a lot of Instax photo albums.
My sister will drool for these Faber-Castell sets!
Different types of Arist Pens brush sets depending on the art style you're going for
Notebooks and journals galore!
These Daycraft notebooks are sooo pretty!
Rhodia in all colors of the rainbow
TOOLS to LIVEBY binder clips for your journaling needs 
Speedball Calligraphy sets
Nibs and nib holders to last you countless calligraphy sessions!
Inks!
Fancy calligraphy sets
I wanted to get something like this but without the sealing wax set because I already have one, but unfortunately they already ran out of stocks of that. Next time, then!
Seal coins for the sealing wax set
Fountain pens and brush pens
Color pens in different color grades and formula
Fancy pens
Fancy pens and inks
More fancy pens and inks
Color-in masking tape that you can decorate with the coloring pencils (included when you buy the set) when wash tapes are too mainstream for you
Whether you're a hardcore DIY-er or a casual crafter, a pen collector or a notebook hoarder, a BuJo girl or a Hobonichi planner, a stationery pack-rat or a discerning hobbyist, there's surely something here for you. Thanks for having me today, Liz!

I like attending events, especially when I see people I only get to see online. Hello, Arriane!

I am so annoyed that I wasn't able to take a nice photo of my loot. One of the items I got is my 18 Treasures gift to my sister on her debut party this coming Sunday, but I'm hoping to update this post with a photo and descriptions of the stuff I got for myself. First on the list, this beautiful Kalocsa Marigolds Daycraft Flower Wow Lined Notebook. It has a cloth cover with gilded pages and floral designs inside. So premium, and I expected it to cost a lot more than its P725 price tag. ♥

Come visit the new Scribe at the ground level of Glorietta 4 (it's by the exit facing SM Makati) and do your Christmas shopping for your crafty friends and family members early. I'm sure you'll also score a thing or two for yourself.
