Founded in 1972, Jimmy Ezra’s Upper East Side office-supply and stationery store holds both everyday items and international products like Rhodia notebooks from France, Caran d’Ache colored pencils from Switzerland, and Faber-Castell pens from Germany. The retro sign outside, with its Art Deco font, reflects the shop’s old-school, tabac feel. The most popular items are notebooks, binders, and journals, some from hard-to-find names like Miguel Ruiz, Clairefontaine, and russel+hazel. A personalization department creates stationery for events like weddings and bar mitzvahs; orders are either completed in-house within a day, or, when using exclusive European paper from labels like Cartier and Jan Peter Obr, filled abroad and shipped. The high-end handbags and luggage section focuses on Longchamps, Bric’s, Hervé Chapelier, and Vera Bradley. Shoppers can also pick up frames, candles, watches, and photo albums in the spacious, well-organized store.
