News and Updates - Pendemonium!

Updated March 18, 2018

This is where we let you know about new items, upcoming events and other newsworthy things we hope you'll find of interest as a pen aficionado.

We look forward to seeing you at the Arkansas Pen Show held in Little Rock, Arkansas. The dates to remember are March 16-18, 2018. The pen people in Little Rock always put on a cordial first class pen show and have been doing so for about 30 years now. Pendemonium will have a full exhibit filled with fountain pens, inks, dip pens and nibs, pen related books and of course all the usual and unusual things you expect from Pendemonium.

Please note that we will be away from Pendemonium-Central Tuesday, March 13 - Wednesday, March 21. We always acknowledge orders and inquiries while we're on the road. Orders received prior to March 12 will be shipped before we leave for Little Rock. Shipping will resume again on Thursday, March 22, 2018. We appreciate your patience while we travel to and from the Arkansas Pen Show.
