five and a half. handmade, recollected


five and half‘s recycled handmade journals are by far my favorite journals. Made of interesting, recollected papers, the journals are a really great and inspiring twist on the traditional journal/sketchbook while also being environmentally friendly. five and a half was started by eco-chick, Judy in Brooklyn and has since taken off, with her journals selling online at her store and at various stores in New York City, Chicago and Berkeley. The journals come in 2 sizes— “pocket” and “large” (I personally love the large) and the prices are really reasonable ($16 and $22) for a handmade journal. Although the store will be closed until November 15th, they reopen just in time for the Holidays to buy journals/sketchbooks for your favorite eco-chick!
