So… I’m suppose to be saving money and paying off cards so I can travel this year. So isn’t this just the perfect time for a new, costly, obsession!!?? (I suck…)
Now, I’m not new to fountain pens; I’ve been using them for years. But now, I pretty much use them all the time. I have have two really cheap ones that I take back and forth to work. I got a lot more into it, though, after reading someone’s post on the NaNoWriMo forums about them and linked to a great online store that sells pens and ink. That store – The Goulet Pen Company – has received a LOT of my money since then! They have a great selection of pens, paper and ink, including ink samples and even an ink samples of the month club. Their customer service is second to none and their shipping is reasonable and packed so well I’m sure the packages are indestructible (as well as making for a fun game of ‘hot potato’!)
I’d begun to think that it was impossible to get normal, inexpensive, every day pens in North America so I’m glad I’ve found this store and a few others. In Germany, I could buy them in the stationary section of the grocery store!
Are you a fountain pen user? What is your favourite pen and ink? Where do you shop?
