I bought my first Smencils (for the kids, I thought) when I visited one of Las Vegas’ loveliest shops, the Las Vegas Paper Doll Stationery Shop owned by Anne Kellogg. Boy, does she ever have an eye for cute stuff.
And, one of the totally cute and perfectly priced impulse items in the store are the Smencils ($2 ea.), scented pencils made out of recycled newspaper. As the company itself advertises, they are saving trees, one pencil at a time. Indeed, it would appear that Smencils are healthy for the environment. To be precise, Smencils are manufactured from recycled newspapers, environmentally friendly fragrances, recyclable ferrules and biodegradable erasers. Their Gourmet scents include Cherry, Cinnamon, Bubble Gum, Pineapple, Orange, Grape, Fruit Punch, Root Beer, Watermelon and Peppermint. Yummm! But, wait… no Chocolate? I’ll need to write to them.
Come Christmas, this will be the cutest stocking stuffer around!
