LA Was a Great Show!

Hi Pen Fans!

Well, the LA Pen Show was excellent!

It was great to see lots of our regulars from the West Coast, and to meet some new friends!

Unfortunately, we were literally packed to the absolute maximum when it comes to what we could fly with, which means that I couldn't pack my camera.  However, even if I had the camera with me, I honestly don't think that I would have had much time for photos!  We were awfully busy!

If you are expecting an email from me, I'll do my best to get through all emails today, but there's a sizable amount, so if you don't hear from me today, definitely tomorrow. 

For those of you who would like to see some good photo coverage of what you might have missed at the LA Pen Show, AltecGreen did a great job of documenting the show, and posted his photos here on a thread at FPGeeks.

Another Great Philly Show!

Hi Pen Fans!

We got back from the Philly Pen Show last night, and as usual, it was a ton of fun! 

I am working on emails now, so if you are expecting an email from me, you should have a response from me today.

Photos from the show are in a slideshow below.  If you cannot see this slideshow, click here.

Philly Bound!

Hi Pen Fans!

We are getting packed up for the Philly Pen Show today!

Usually, right before pen shows, I manage to get a quick video up showing all of the inventory that we'll be bringing.  Unfortunately, our spare time has been completely dominated with making sure that the Edison Nouveau LE Premiere (go to that link for an update) is finished up and on the way to the Goulets, so I'm afraid that getting a video together will be impossible today, sorry!

So we'll be set up on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Philly Pen Show.  If you've never attended the show, I really recommend it!

If I'm slow with emails, you'll know why.

Hope to see you in Philly!

The Ohio Pen Show Was a Blast!

Hi Pen Fans!

As usual, the Ohio Pen Show was a smashing success!!!  Big thanks to Terry Mawhorter and his crew or putting on another great show!

Laurence Oldfield was able to visit from the UK.  Very nice guy, and he had a couple of incredible Fords.
I saw a pair of solid gold Parker T-1's.  Amazing!
Michael Sull was in attendance making us all jealous of his phenomenal script!
There's lots more!  All of these highlights, as well as more are within the slideshow below.

(if you cannot see this slideshow, click here)

We are pretty exhausted, and will not be in the shop today and possibly tomorrow, as well.  If you are expecting an email from me, I'll return it tomorrow or Wednesday.

The Michigan Pen Show Was Great!

Hi Pen Fans!

The Michigan Pen Show was another success!

While this show is not as large as DC or LA, Lih-Tah and the other Michigan Pen Collectors really put on a good show.  A good representation of vintage and modern.  If you are in the area next year, I do recommend attending!

There was a nice group of Canadian collectors that made the trip across the river as well, so it was nice to see our Northern friends!

Below is a slideshow with some of my photos from the show.  (if you can't see the slideshow, click here)

And I have to share one of the neatest vintage displays that I've ever seen!

This is a vintage diplay for a Shaeffer Vacuum-Fil.  The display has a working pen within, and there's a motor behind the display that keeps the mechanism filling and emptying, filling and empyting!  Very very neat!

I've had a couple people ask about our Current Inventory after the Michigan Pen Show.  We will get that gallery updated tomorrow!  I'll announce it here on the blog, so keep your eye on this page tomorrow!

Heading to the Michigan Pen Show!

Hi Pen Fans!

One of our favorite "quaint" pen shows is this weekend!

We will be at the Michigan Pen Show!  We'll be set up by 3 on Friday, and then we'll be there all day Saturday.

Now we won't have time to update the Current Inventory Galleries today, so there will be some pens that are not in those galleries that will be at the show.  We'll be bringing around 250 pens, including about 40 pneumatics and about 30 pump fillers.

If you are near Michigan, I do recommend attending.  It's not as large as DC or LA, but there are some great vendors there.  Lih-Tah and the rest of the MIchigan collectors always put on a quality show.  There is usually a nice Canadian crowd that crosses the river to participate, as well.

If you are wondering about the pens that are not in the Current Inventory Galleries yet, we'll take whatever doesn't sell in Michigan, photograph them, and update the gallery next week.  I'll announce on the blog when the galleries are updated.

We hope to see you this weekend!
