Pendemonium is a full time online writing equipment shop owned by Sam and Frank Fiorella

Welcome to Pendemonium - your source for writing collectibles!

Updated February 15, 2019

Pendemonium is a full time writing equipment shop owned by Sam and Frank Fiorella. We are one of just a handful of full time writing equipment dealers in the world.

We take pride in offering the very best personalized service we possibly can.

Much of our business is transacted over the internet which some regard as rather impersonal, but we are determined to offer each of our customers service tailored to their needs.

We make every effort to swiftly reply to email inquiries, usually within a few hours.

P.O. Box 4088

Below are new items, upcoming events and other newsworthy things we hope you'll find of interest as a pen aficionado.

Join us at the Los Angeles International Pen Show, February 15-17, 2019. Pendemonium will have three full tables of all things writing. Fountain pens, mechanical pencils, dip pens, pen books, loads of inks and just about everything else pen loves love to find at a pen show!

On Saturday, February 16, Sam will be presenting her Think Ink seminar. The seminar is free and you will walk out knowing a lot more about ink than you did before you walking in!

We look forward to seeing you at the annual LA Pen Show.

Please note that we will be away from the shop from Thursday, February 14 through Tuesday, February 18, 2019. Shipping will resume on Wednesday, February 19. We will continue to reply to emails and acknowledge orders while we are away. Thank you for your patience while we attend the LA Pen Show.
