February 22, 2017. So sorry! Inky Greetings will not be going out to subscribers on Thursday, February 23. We're working thru a short backlog from being away for the L.A. Pen Show over the weekend and things will return to Pendemonium-Normal in the next 24 hours or so.
Thanks for your patience. Peruse the website! Watch for Midnight Madness on Monday!
The Los Angeles International Pen Show
February 17-18-19, 2017
Manhattan Beach Marriott, California
This is a great show and brings in pen aficionados from around the world. We will be in our usual spot in the main ballroom. Enter ballroom through main door, turn right and the Pendemonium exhibit is right in front of you! We'll have a wide range of all things - Pendemonium including pen reference books, penmanship books and supplies including a wide range of dip pen nibs and dip pen holders. Fountain Pens, mechanical pencils and we usually have a few ballpoints and rollerballs, too. Lots of safe inks. Lots of hard to find fountain pen memorabilia. Pen Repair supplies. Stop by and browse.
Sam will be presenting her Think Ink Seminar on Saturday, February 18 at 3pm in the second floor seminar room. Good common sense information on inks and how your pens interact with them. Time for Q&A and discussion. We aim to have fun - no boring videos or slide presentations, this is an interactive presentation!
If you're planning ahead and would like to be sure to find what you want at the show, send us your wish list and we'll bring your delivery to the show. We can't bring our entire inventory and some items tend to sell quickly - especially books, inks and repair supplies. If there is something you want that is on the website, tell us about it before February 14 and we'll deliver!
We look forward to seeing you at one of the oldest and largest pen shows in the world! Wear comfy shoes :)
We will be on the road and at the L.A. Pen Show Thursday, February 16 through Monday, February 20. 2017. We will ship orders out placed through noon Wed. Feb. 15 on Feb. 16 and resume shipping on Tuesday, Feb. 21. All orders are acknowledged and email is replied to while we are away. This is a pretty short trip, so no big delays!
