♥ hello kitty(back)
When I was a little girl my dad would drag my sister and I to the TrueValue hardware store on weekends. It wasn't so bad, in and of itself, it was just... well, it was a hardware store! But there was a bright spot... They had a shelf devoted to Hello Kitty. I guess for those little girls dragged in by their fathers :)
And they had so many cute items! Stationary, pens, pencils, erasers, coin purses, and other little things. Now the product line is enormous and if you can think of it, it probably exists!
Currently I have a very large Hello Kitty collection, including a laptop case, makeup cases, misc cases, pens, pencils, erasers, stamps, stickers, bags, wallets, etc. I love my trips to the Sanrio store, even if I walk out with only a pen or a sticker. Just the memory related to this adorable kitty fills me with happiness :)
