In this last installment of our Tales of Holiday Shopping may we present you with a question?  
In the deepest darkest depths of your soul... 

Do you miss having a Christmas stocking?

If so, join the club.  But is there a LAW that says no more Christmas stockings after a certain age?  Why?  It's only once a year.   

Join us in refusing to abide by this unspoken Christmas stocking tyranny.

But getting a stocking means giving a stocking (which is even a little more fun) so may we present some of our favorite stocking stuffer stuff.  Some things do cost a little more than those chocolate oranges, but the stuffing is up to the stuffer and there's something for everyone. 

Onward comrades!
 Papier Plume carries European sealing wax in dozens of beautiful colors, plus metallic highlighters, oil lamps and, BEST of all, a vast selection of seals.  

Each wax and seal purchase is packed in a little muslin bag with an instruction sheet and a link to our on-line demonstrations.
First image, from left:
~ Bortoletti interchangeable seals have Sapele wood handles accommodate
square gothic and round cursive initial tops as well as decorative and professional symbols. Also available: intricate handblown Murano glass handles in several colors.
~Brass Design seals use a laser to cut their petite and full size symbols and Florentine initials so their screw on tops are crisply detailed. Your choice of different hardwoods or Murano glass handle.  These work wonderfully with the Metallic Ink Pads
~ Petite interchangeable Fleur-de-Lis handle with screw on "coins" in initials and whimsical symbols.
~ From France, Potier d'Etain solid pewter seals with handles.  Very antique feeling creating dimensional, sculpture like seal. The oval Fleur-de-Lis seen in the right adjacent image is a favorite.
~ Brass Handle round or oval design seals from Italy in very Old World style designs.

Far right image, clockwise:
~ Four Murano glass handles for Brass Design seals
~ Bortoletti sealing wax lamps in Art Nouveau octagonal and simple cylindrical styles.  Also from Bortoletti: wax seal desk sets including a wax lamps and stand for your seal.
~ Large melting spoon, to mix and marble waxes.  Uses special wax "dots" or small cuts of stick wax.
~ Paraffin oil lamps are not required for melting wax (a candle will do) but they do elevate the experience, be they simple, like the one here, or ornate.

~ Little boxes of
metallic highlighter in silver, champagne (as shown) or bronze, copper and gold.

Flexible wax half-sticks to roll over a flame or use in a hot glue gun to make lot of seals fast.  Also available in full length sticks.
