News and Updates - Pendemonium!

Updated October 17, 2017

This is where we let you know about new items, upcoming events and other newsworthy things we hope you'll find of interest as a pen aficionado.

**Scroll down to see our latest updates!**


Save the Date! October 21, 2017!  

A note to our local Kingman and northern Arizona customers: This Saturday, October 21, 2017, Pendemonium will be set up inside the Valle Vista Clubhouse for the Valle Vista Craft Show from 9am - 2pm. We've been going to this show for several years now and always enjoy the upscale crafts and jewelry. We felt our unusual writing equipment would be a good addition to the mix and the organizers agreed. So, we'll be taking a sampling of Pendemonium things to show and sell on Saturday.

Quite a bit smaller than our usual pen show exhibit! Perhaps the best part is that it is only one mile down the road from us, considerably shorter drive than most pen shows! If you're in the Kingman or surrounding area, we look forward to seeing you this Saturday, October 21 from 9-2 at the Valle Vista Clubhouse.

Valle Vista is located off Historic Route 66 at Milepost 71, follow Concho Drive to the Valle Vista Golf Club and the Clubhouse on your right. 


Our NEW Pendemonium Downtown Shop is open for business in historic downtown Kingman, Arizona!

We have filled it up with a  little bit of all thing - Pendemonium.  There are fountain and other pens, dip pens, many inks, pen repair supplies including pen sacs. Also, ephemera, desk sets, inkwells and other pen-centric items we normally sell here on the website that we hope our customers would like. Just like our Pendemonium website, the items will change frequently.  

The shop is located inside Time Was Antiques at 427 E. Beale St, Kingman, Arizona.

Open Monday - Friday 9:30 AM - 5 PM and Saturdays 10AM - 4PM.  Closed Sundays. Sam will be at the new shop four days a month and we will announce the dates at the beginning of each month. In October, Sam will be at the shop on the following days:

Thursday, October 12
Saturday, October 14
Thursday, October 19
Saturday, October 28

There is always a Time Was Antiques employee to assist customers throughout the antique shop, as well as at the Pendemonium shop during open hours. 

No changes to our Pendemonium website, No changes to our Pen Show schedule, just another way for you browse our items in a historic downtown setting at your leisure.  We look forward to serving you at the new Downtown Pendemonium!

      

Think Ink! 

From the 1990s, a few inks that don't quite qualify as vintage, but come in handsome bottles and have usable ink in them, too!

We've found several of the what we always have referred to as Jumbo Pen frogs. 

Exceptionally large vintage clear glass flower frogs with large holes that hold your fountain pens securely in an upright postion. Since they're clear, they go with any decor and if a few drops of ink spill onto the pen frog, it's easy-peasy to clean up. 

 

Also today, we added a tan leather two pen case with stitched edges.  

It holds large pens comfortably and at $30 it is a steal!
