We lost or minds and went to the Mall of America on one of the busiest Saturdays ever. We ended up parking on the roof of the parking ramp because all the lower levels were full. We just wanted to pop in for lunch and a few rides in the amusement park. It has been such a gloomy fall, we wanted to get the boys out of the house for a few hours.
Despite dropping in for a late lunch, at are fave St. Paul Grille, the wait was 40 minutes. They give you a pager, but you can only go 5 stores in either direction to stay within range. Thankfully for me there was a new store to check only a few doors down. I should preface this by explaining how rarely we go to the Mall of America. This new-to-me store could be a few years old for all I know.
Typo is one of the most adorable stores I have ever been to. Everywhere I looked was cute eye-candy. I wanted almost everything in the place. It is filled with cute, fun, and quirky office supplies.
I loved the store displays. This long one was reminiscent of a card catalog. The great displays added so much character to the shop.
We ended up buying a couple of ceramic owls in pink and hot pink for my niece (seen in the top right of the photo below). Oh yes, I am passing the owl love to the next generation. In my defense her mom started the owl cuteness with my niece’s nursery decor. These sweet owls will make great nursery decor.
We also grabbed a white wooden ampersand for my studio. I am partial to this special character, since it appears so prominently in the Teal & Lime logo. Typo sells these wooden letters at 3 for $10.
And, I could not resist the cute bird card holder (I bought one in aqua). He is a place card holder, but I just thought he was cute. I will put him in my studio to hold important notes or reminders.
Looks like Typo has a few other US locations and an online store, if you won’t be in the Mall of America neighborhood anytime soon. As for us, our annual rule is in effect…no going to the Mall until January. The holiday shoppers are too many and too crazy to make a trip to the Mall enjoyable this time of the year.
