Meet Meike Wander, the owner of the prettiest stationery shop in Berlin. R.S.V.P. was opened back in 2001 by Elisabeth von Treskow, an illustrator who consigned the small store (16sqm) to Meike Wander in 2004. The studied cultural scientist imagined having a small stationary store offering specialities since her childhood, when she was already looking for small paper gems for school on her family vacations in Greece. Although letter paper seems to be less and less needed, greeting cards, notebooks and calendars are still highly coveted. R.S.V.P. offers products hand-made by small manufacturers, like cards printed with a letterpress or by steel engraving, with a special focus on producers who are conserving old techniques. Meike finds those treasures still by rummaging in small stationery stores around Berlin or abroad. Furthermore they stock a beautiful selection of writing utensils from Caran d’Ache to Koh-I-Noor. Everything is neatly presented in the imposing interior by Stefan Sell, but if you can’t stop by yourself, you can also order online.
A second store / showroom is located at Kopenhagener Straße 42, that is opened irregularly, but offers a broader sortiment with sandals and bags.
