Our Downtown Pendemonium shop inside Time Was Antiques is closed through March 31 when the owners will re-evaluate the current Covid-19 health crisis.  Thus far Kingman and Mohave County, AZ have been covid-free.  We just can't be safe enough in our current world.  Kingman has visitors from around the world mostly attributed to Route 66 tourism, we are the first city you get to when traveling I-40 from California. I commend Tom and Mary, the owners of the antique shop for making the difficult decision to close at this time.  Stay tuned for updates. 

Arkansas Pen Show - We had a great time at the Arkansas Pen Show this past weekend.  Thank you to all who attended the pen show and purchased items from us, we appreciate it.   

The Arkansas Pen Show is this weekend! We'll see you at the Little Rock Crown Plaza Hotel March 13-15, 2020. This is a long running pen show. Cordial local pen collectors manage the show well. Expect a heavy leaning toward vintage pens and writing collectibles, although there will be new writing equipment as well.
