August 26, 2014 - Our "Other Pen" aisle has been restocked today. Remember - that's the place to find all the good non-Big Four pen makers!


August 25, 2014 - We always had a good selection of vintage Sheaffer Pens prior to moving to Fort Madison, while we were based out of Fort Madison and we continue that tradition in our new locale. New listings today of a wide range of Sheaffers including Targa, several nice desk sets and other selections as well.


August 22, 2014 - The amazing book, F.W. Tamblyn's Home Instructor in Penmanship is back in stock. We're pleased that they have gone back to using the original elegant cover for this book - a deep blue with gold foil embossed lettering. Of course the contents are what counts and nothing has changed there!


The individual Ziller Studio books that form the Tamblyn Instructor are also all back in stock for those of you who want to focus on a particular style of writing.

We just made up a fresh batch of Bottle o' Nibs for you! Great way to try out 30 different antique dip pen nibs and get a cool bottle with them, too.


August 20, 2014 - We've updated the list we keep on the website of the upcoming pen shows we'll be attending.

Coming up this weekend, we will be attending the San Francisco Pen Show on Saturday, August 23rd. No exhibit this year with it falling so close to DC, but we will be at the show to make deliveries, attend the Pen Posse and assist the organizers where needed. Hope to see you there on Saturday!

Also note that Sam will be giving her Think Ink Seminar in Albuquerque, New Mexico on September 13th at the New Mexico Pen Collectors meeting. Just click on over to our Pen Shows section of the website for details on this and all of our upcoming pen shows.

August 18, 2014 - Thank you! Thank you! The DC Pen Show was a great time all round and we thank you for visiting us at the show. We also thank you for your patience while we were away on this extended two week jaunt to Washington, DC to not only attend the pen show, but to scour the countryside looking for more unusual writing collectibles for you.

Just a few of the writing instruments acquired on this trip.

We came back fully loaded with interesting things we purchased at the DC Pen Show as well as at small shops on the byways of America. We even had a chance to shop a tiny portion of the World's Longest Antique Show on Highway 127 in Tennessee. That was quite the experience!

A small sampling of some of the unusual pieces of writing equipment we'll have available for you soon.

Today, Monday, August 18, we are shipping all of the orders that were placed while we were away. Regular next day shipping will resume immediately.

August 14, 2014 - Parker Pen just did it right and they continue to do so today. We have a few of the quirky UK made Parkers for you today.


August 11, 2014 - Rocker Blotters were a vital part of writing well into the 1930s and continued to be used and made into the 1950s. They served an important purpose by quickly blotting away excess ink, especially on a signature. Today, rocker blotters are collectible, plus still functional little artistic objects that fountain pen people enjoy for that total writing experience. We've added four lovely rocker blotters to our selection today and we hope you'll find one that is perfect for you.


August 7, 2014 - The 1930s and 1940s were innovative days in the world of pendom. Advertisements were equally exciting, check out our latest additions to our Waterman vintage advertisement listings.
