When is the last time you held a hand-written letter in your hands? There is nothing more personal and heartfelt than words scribbled on paper or a beautiful card sent by a good friend. Yet, in the digital world we live in, the tradition of letter writing has become nearly extinct. Pepa is here to change that.

The wonderful world of Pepa is something you’ll have to experience for yourself, but in short, it is a very special store brimming with a collection of the most beautiful and user-friendly stationery from around the world. If you ever needed a kick up the backside to get back into writing, this is the place to visit. Here you’ll find the perfect journal and the loveliest pen. Slow down, step away from that screen and experience the tactile pleasure of writing.

Not only do the good folks at Pepa offer the best writing supplies, they talk the talk and truly walk the walk. Pepa Post encourages store visitors to write a letter to a nominated stranger. Send love and inspiration to someone who really needs it. Everything for writing these special letters is supplied, all you need to do is take a seat, take a moment and share some love.

Next time you find yourself wandering the historic corridors of the Arts Centre, be sure to pop in to Pepa, pick up a pen and paper or a special gift and bring a little light into someone’s day.
