4. CW Pencil Enterprise (100B Forsyth Street)

CW Pencil Enterprise sells almost only pencils, with accompanying pencil related paraphernalia). With a pristine white interior infused with pop colors from the pencils themselves and a retro yellow chair, it’s like a creative space you wished was in your own home.

The collection of pencils at CW Pencil Enterprise include those dating from the 1920s and 1950s, and more obscure ones are collected through a variety of methods–by friends in other countries, auctions or other collectors. The collection of pencils is also available for purchase online, along with accessories like sharpeners, displayed in glass cases in the shop, erasers, stylish notebooks and a pencil case.
