Specialty Pencil Store ‘CW Pencil Enterprise’ Debuts on Forsyth Street
Your standard-issue #2 pencil ain’t gonna cut it anymore. Not with a trendy pencil purveyor now slinging graphite on the Lower East Side. CW Pencil Enterprise – a small business founded by one Caroline Weaver in November 2014 – debuted earlier this month at 100a Forsyth Street.
The CW brick-and-mortar boutique store is stocked with a generous selection of pencils and related accessories. Enthusiasts can find everything from specialty scented pencils and colored pencils to those flat carpenter pencils. Complementary items sold alongside include notebooks, sharpeners, and erasers.
Proprietor Caroline Weaver, the self-proclaimed “crazy pencil lady,” has a simple goal…
What we’re trying to do is dig up the stories and origins of these objects and make them accessible to those who appreciate them for their functionality, beauty and history as much as we do. As simple as it may be, the pencil is something which despite advances in technology will never become obsolete. Whatever you may use them for, we want to make sure that you can have any pencil your heart, hand, or collection desires.
