"Each item is enriched by Weaver’s palpable passion; she delights in expounding on a pencil’s provenance and graphite qualities, as well as its optimal use – from sketching to novel writing to crossword puzzling."
"[Caroline's] knowledge of pencils emerges with assurance and in such depth that one can’t help but regard them as something more than disposable, graphite-filled sticks — as products complete with history, nuanced construction and a complexity all their own."
"But let me say this about Caroline Weaver. She knows more about pencils than – well, I bet she knows more about pencils than you know about anything. Certainly more than I know about anything."
"It’s a 200-square-foot, highly Instagrammable jewel box dedicated to wood and graphite owned by Caroline Weaver, a 24-year-old pencil pusher whose knowledge and enthusiasm are likely to turn you into a pencil junkie too."
"In a time when everyone is keenly aware of the permanence of our words on the internet — nothing disappears, everything is forever — the pencil, as a concept, is oddly romantic. It's ephemeral. The graphite can smudge; the words can be erased just as quickly as they're written. As Caroline Weaver puts it, 'I think people feel more free when they write with a pencil.'"
"Because pencils have a credible use, this single-minded store is able to transcend its novelty status. It’s more like a guitar shop than, say, a place devoted solely to popcorn or ice cream sandwiches (both of which are actual stores that exist within a five-block radius of this one)."
"Her store provides a tactile shopping experience, but more than that, she wants to share her passion for pencils with New Yorkers. Customers will be delighted by Caroline’s knowledge of pencil history as well as her understanding and appreciation that pencils are at the beginning of many great achievements."
