Meet the owner

With a background in engineering and visual arts, Jolanta Petrycka has an uncanny ability to source products that strike a balance between design and aesthetics. The result?  A Junction-dwelling trove of pens and pencils, notebooks and stationary that are beautiful, functional and crafted with integrity.

Take Note is a boutique pen and stationary shop that offers Toronto the very best of paper and ink. Jolanta is the owner of this one-of-a-kind operation located in the heart of Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood. Jolanta’s love of paper and ink began in her childhood in Poland. “I was always saving my money to go and get the latest pen,” she explains. Eventually, Jolanta journeyed to Canada with her husband and daughter, with nothing but a backpack, two hundred dollars, and her prized Montblanc pen.

Honing her artistic skills at OCAD, Jolanta gave into her own entrepreneurial instincts and began designing her own line of leather goods and handbags. From there, Take Note seemed like a natural stepping stone, the culmination of all her life’s passions in one boutique experience that's truly Junction-chic at its finest: inviting and warm, with design as the focal point.
