Rethink Your Office Supply Source
"Use vintage accessories instead of the typical office-supply desk set store. A collection of glasses or vases can make great pencil holders. Small decorative dishes can hold paper clips; vanity trays can double as a letter holder or a way to organize tape dispensers and staplers." — Kelly Wearstler, author of Rhapsody (Rizzoli)
