Well, the lovely folks at @presentcorrect on twitter have sent me some replacements - a selection of half a dozen vintage pencils from their collection, beautifully wrapped in an old piece of lined notebook paper, with a nice note inside.
I'm quite giddy at how fabulous they are. One is even an old Dixon Ticonderoga to replace the dozen new ones which went missing!
You should all rush over to Present & Correct at once and have a browse through their wonderful collection of vintage stuff.
Lawks, I do love stationery. I should take photos, yes?
