NEWS: Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Join Pendemonium this weekend at the San Francisco International Pen Show August 23-25, 2019 at the Hotel Pullman in Redwood City, CA.

We LOVE the SF Pen Show! This is a well organized pen show with something for everyone. Friendly and fun atmosphere where you'll feel very welcome the moment you step into the show. The best ink testing set up of all the pen shows! Last year the ballroom was still filled with pen people long after the show closed. Add it to your show calendar, you won't regret it. See you there! Pendemonium will be in their usual exhibit space again this year. Enter the Main Ballroom, turn right and you'll find us against the back wall on the right.

Please send us your orders for delivery at the show Today! We will be leaving for the SF Pen Show on Wednesday, August 21 and will resume regular hours on Wednesday, August 28.

We are on our way to the Washington DC Pen Show. We will be at the show from Friday, August 2nd through August 4th. Look for the Pendemonium Banner.
