  • Awesome! Super neat pen shop with an amazing crew running the show. I felt like a kid in a candy shop and my only complaint is that I couldn't buy the whole store. Large collections of pens and stationary and an even larger collection of ink. Everything is priced pretty competitive/pretty close to market value and everything was clearly labeled. The owners are very cool and took the time to talk with us (as well as many other customers) and are genuinely interested in what they're selling. Unfortunately I don't have a store like this in my hometown, but I'm sure I'll be giving their website some traffic in the near future. Just a nice, friendly couple running a neat small business that I'm more than happy to support!
  • phenomenal customer service! Went shopping in person for the first time for a fountain pen, they really made sure I got something I'd love. Made suggestions on ink and also answered newbie fountain pen questions. It was a wonderful experience and I'll be back! Thank you so much!
