November 24, 2014 - Lots of writing goodness for you today! Our additions to the Other Pen aisle run the gamut from 1930s fountain pens to snazzy new collectible die cast car and pen sets. Start your engines and zip on over to take a look!


November 21, 2014 - More pen storage solutions for you, because everyone deserves something cool to keep their favorite fountains in. Vintage and re-purposed items are our specialty, because you don't want the same thing everyone else has! New listings today, we hope you'll look them over and buy your favorite.


November 18, 2014 - The 1930s was the Golden Age of Fountain Pens and the pen makers spared nothing in creating elaborate and eye catching advertisements. Patricians and Lady Patricians were coveted by many. Be sure to take a moment to see our latest 1930s Waterman advertisements, perfect for framing. And flashback to the 1940s with ads also added today!


November 17, 2014 - We have returned to Pendemonium-Central from our Ohio Pen Show Adventure. Our thanks to all of you who placed orders while we were on the road. Everyone's orders will be winging their way toward their final destination today, Monday, November 17th. We still have a few emails pending final answers that required being at the shop to reply and we're working on those today. Great to see so many customers and meet some new customers at the Ohio Pen Show, appreciate you stopping by to see us at the show. We stopped and shopped for YOU all the way to Ohio and back to Kingman again and found so many old pieces of writing equipment - these will be coming to you soon on our weekly eNewsletters Inky Greetings and Midnight Madness. A few sneak peek photos for you here today!


November 14, 2014 - The Parker 51 is perhaps Parker's most familiar fountain pen ever made. We hope you'll take a moment to peruse our vintage Parker advertisements, four new ones added today, three from 1947 and one from 1952.


November 11, 2014 - Take a glimpse inside the inner workings of the Sheaffer Pen Company and the people who made your Sheaffer pens via their company newsletter-magazine, The Sheaffer Review. We have a wide variety of issues available from the 1940s into the 1990s.


November 7, 2014 - We have two very different blotters for you today!

This exceptionally elegant blotter is approaching the century mark. Needless to say, there is only one available. Check it out!


Need a little Art Deco bright chrome in your life? Check out this awesome rocker blotter.

November 5, 2014 - Today, we've added several lovely old original Wahl-Eversharp advertisements to our advertisements selection. Love these old ads which are very suitable for framing.


Also look at the beautiful 1920s Sheaffer advertisements illustrated by Donald Denton. Truly small works of art.

November 4, 2014 - They're back! Frank's solid oak pen rests made from old door molding. Limited supplies, so grab one while they last!


October 28, 2014 - This Sheaffer wanted its own listing!

Lady Sheaffer Skripsert pens were the cat's meow back in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Designed in partnership with Revlon to appeal to the modern woman, there were some pretty awesome patterns on the Skripsert. Sadly, the finishes many times are well worn over the years. We just happen to have one primo example in original box which is a small work of art in itself, along with the carry cases, one for the pen and pencil set and one for extra cartridges, the cases were made to clip inside a woman's handbag. They don't come much nicer than this one!





October 27, 2014 - It's a Sheaffer Day here at Pendemonium! Large update including vintage school pens, upscale cartridge filler pens, Targa, Sentinel and a very odd Award Party Animal Pen. Christmas tins with original Sheaffer advertising images and a pen inside, too. TX, Balance, No Nonsense and some beautifully illustrated Sheaffer notecards by the talented Fort Madison artist, Jim Knapp. Click on over to peruse our large selection of vintage and collectible Sheaffer.


October 24, 2014 - Poster stamps are such awesome little bits of history! We currently have a wide variety of pen, ink and writing themed antique poster stamps. Click on over to our Ephemera aisle and take them all in.


October 20, 2014 - We have two VERY different Eversharps for you today, spanning the decades. They certainly had a long history of making fine writing instruments.


There seems to be a huge interest in vintage dip pens of late, you folks are buying them faster than we can fix them up and post them for sale and we certainly appreciate that. A small update to our Dip Pens section today, more to follow soon.

Esterbrook Dip Less inkstands fly out of here faster than we can find them. Nice example listed today, a Model 444 with the deep red base insert and an early Dip Less style nib instead of the more common Renew Point. Also added today, a classic Esterbrook desk set with unusual Estie fountain pen. It's a steal!

October 15, 2014 - Parker Pen updates on the website just for you! Some Parker presidential related memorabilia along with an awesome Mid-Century Jotter desk set and a Parker 51 Demi fountain pen, as well as several other collectible pens. Hope you'll click on over to browse our entire selection of vintage and collectible Parker Pens, Pencils, Desk Sets and memorabilia.


October 6, 2014 - Oodles of vintage Parker Advertisements for you to peruse today. Take a little stroll through Parker history, then select your favorite to adorn your wall!
