Finally! I’ve always wondered why manufacturers seem hellbent on making staplers as plain Thelma Lou’s cousin. Sure, they’re “Niiiiiccce. Real niiiiiice,” but that doesn’t make them look any better sitting on your desk than Mary Grace would. As a matter of fact, very often they’re downright fugly.
Now someone’s gone and gotten all jazzy and has given this office necessity a makeover. The sleek little PaperPro(tm) Compact Stapler from Linens ‘ n Things comes in three hot colors: Green, Red, or Blue – and each is under $10.oo. Love that.
From the Website:

By the way, did you know that the adorable actress who played Mary Grace on T.A.G.S. was named Mary Grace in real life. She also played “Ralph” on Green Acres and was the second nosy neighbor Harriet Cravtiz on Bewitched. One of the best character actresses of her time.
