If you don't dare utter that snarky comment going through your head at work, let Anne Taintor's fabulous office supplies do the talking for you--while giving your desk a sweet style boost. Vintage images and retro graphics combined with witty, sarcastic blurbs make Taintor's impossibly cute, incredibly smart file folders, notepads, and other not-so-basic office staples irresistible. We got the Fancy File Folders from her Modern Office Revisited line (only $12 for a pack of six!), and we can't stop oohing and ahhing. The Sticky Notes and Nifty Notepads are also on my wish list.
