In the digital age, the analog markers of a thoughtful desk are disappearing faster than our hopes for a 2011-2012 NBA season. Call us old fashioned, but we still find value in having our work stations stand out from the pack of brushed aluminum and little white cords. If you’re a kindred spirit in that way, then consider spending a few shekels on the Poppin Well-Appointed Desk Set ($30). The retro-inspired bundle includes two leather cover notebooks, a clear ruler, 12 grey signature pens, a white stapler, and a pair of classic scissors. All are tastefully selected to look great on their own or as part of a set, for less than the price of an average size Moleskine.
