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.

September 25, 2014 - Pendemonium has a wide selection on vintage pencil leads, even harder to find leads like the VS 1.5mm size that fits many of your early Victorian era pencils. Many of these antique lead containers are collectible in their own right. Be sure to check out this old Eversharp Red Top Pencil Lead display we put up for sale today and we hope you'll keep us in mind when you need to restock your pencil leads.

September 10, 2014 - Sheaffer aficionados take note! Lots of great new Sheaffer for you today. A fun Student Handwriting set complete with pen and instructions from the 1950s, neat Imperial FP in original very snazzy box, an upscale Sentinel set with gold plated caps and a host of other items that wear the white dot.


September 4, 2014 - Just got in a big batch of Pilot-Namiki blue ink cartridges to fill up your Vanishing Points and most other Pilot fountain pens.


September 3, 2014 - This Sheaffer L Gauge was once used in the factory in Fort Madison, it was recently listed on the website as a sort of mystery item because no one we had spoken for knew what it was for other than something for Prelude manufacture since it was engraved Prelude. Just the other day, a woman who actually used perhaps this gauge or at least one similar to it emailed with details on what it was used for. We've updated the description for you so you'll know exactly what it was intended for.


September 2, 2014 - Vintage inks are not just for ink bottle collectors. Add a pen branded bottle to your pen collection. We have a great Parker for you today. These antique ink bottles make great little inexpensive inkwells, too.
