Carolina Pad Review & Giveaway - Back 2 School Giveaway #2


Carolina Pad has the perfect items for back to school shopping! All of their items have trendy and fun patterns. Hot Chocolate happens to be my favorite line!

Carolina Pad school, office, and arts and craft products feature exceptional quality and design. They are a great way to express yourself!

How It All Started The Carolina Pad story begins in 1945 in Charlotte, North Carolina. That’s when Joseph K. Hall Jr. and several business associates managed to scrape up enough money and equipment to start up a school supply manufacturing company. Joe had been operating Hall & Morris, a school supply wholesale business in Belmont, North Carolina. The new company offered composition books, notebook paper, primary tablets, pencils, crayons, and other school supplies. A former teacher, principal, and coach, Joe was excited by the new company’s offerings.

Carolina Pad continued to sell school supplies in the market formerly serviced by Hall & Morris. But since it was now in the manufacturing businss, Carolina Pad had more products to sell. So to get an edge over larger, more established counterparts, Joe sold products directly to schools in the Carolinas and Virginia — often out of the back of his truck!

Carolina Pad sent me a bunch of products from Simply Chic, Hot Chocolate, Chit Chat, Whimsical Flower & Pattern Play! I recieved notebooks, 13 pocket expandable accordian folder which is great for storing bills, comp book that contains puctuation info & parts of speech info inside the front cover and word play & misspelled words inside the back cover , a very sturdy binder, tab dividers with pockets, file folders, & a pocket folder!

My favorite item would probably be the Hot Chocolate Notebook. I like to keep a notebook of things for Hailee, weight, height, milestones, things she may say, etc. This notebook is perfect because of the features my fav. being the elastic closure!

Not only are Carolina Pad products trendy they will hold up alot longer than other prducts I have seen. The notebook covers are made sturdy not flimsy!

I have seen lots of other cute products at Walmart and the prices were very reasonable for being so stylish! You can also purchase them at Walgreens, CVS, Kmart, & many more, collections vary by store! You find out which stores carry your favorite products here!
