This stationery store isn't going anywhere

Mr. Rewrite's recent return to NYC gives him a reason to resume video blogging. This vlog returns him to one of his favorite misspelled signs: a store offering stationary.

For the record, stationery applies to writing paper, notecards, envelopes -- even pens, according to Dictionary.com

Stationary can refer to several things, but each has to do with standing still or not changing.

So unless this store is touting the fact that it isn't going anywhere, it's selling stationery.

Those paid to know better do pretty well with stationary vs. stationery. But enjoy these errors:

How about www.stationeryworld.com where you can shop for everything in Stationery.
