Small Splurges: Practical Purse Brings Stationery Style

Post-it Brand from 3M Canada fuses fashion with function with new purse-shaped Post-it Note dispenser.

LONDON, Ont. – Nov. 3, 2009 – This fall, fashion takes a turn off runways and into homes and offices as 3M Canada today announced it is expanding its collection of designer Post-it Note dispensers with an embossed crocodile print black purse.

Just as handbags hold the little necessities women need to get through the day, the purse-shaped Post-it Note dispenser keeps the much-loved stationery staple at people’s fingertips.

“In the same way fashion accessories bring individuality and elegance to a person’s overall appearance, the Post-it purse can express a sense of style in workspaces,” explained Sherry Browne, brand manager, 3M Canada.

The Canadian designed and manufactured dispensers stand upright on flat surfaces and allow users to take Post-it Notes one at a time. Each refillable dispenser comes with one pad of 50 seven centimetres by seven centimetres (three inch by three inch) Post-it Pop-up Notes.

Available for under $15 at major Canadian retailers, purse-shaped Post-it Note dispensers make great presents for women on gift lists including colleagues, teachers, family and friends.
