Dear Pen Friends,
We hope you are all faring well as the cool weather has settled – we hear there’s even snow in Edmonton! Lots and lots is going on here as we prepare for the holiday season (and winter!), and we are pretty excited for some new things we’re expecting in shop.
Kaweco’s new Skyline Sport Fountain Pen in Mint has now arrived, and we also have the new vintage clips. Rohrer and Klingner inks have been re-stocked, including our favourite shading Alt-Goldgrun. We received a Midori shipment with re-stock of Midori brass items. We’re expecting the Midori Traveler’s notebooks and all accessories to come in a few more weeks.
We are still waiting for the new J. Herbin Stormy Grey to arrive, now anticipated for mid-November. We are also expecting Rouge Hematite to arrive in that shipment. Along those lines, we have some sad news that a price increase from our distributor in J. Herbin inks now means we are increasing the price of our 30mL J. Herbin bottles from $9.75 to $11.00, as of November 15th. We just received a shipment of ink, and most inks should be in stock online and in store over the next week.
Our bricks and mortar shop will be closed on Wednesday, October 29, from 12pm to 3pm, if you are planning a visit that day! Of course you can call ahead (647 461 2426) to make sure we’re open.
Lastly, remember the Scriptus Toronto Pen Show is coming up this Sunday! It’s from 10am to 4pm, and we will be there first thing, bright eyed and bushy tailed. Unfortunately we won’t be staying long, as our bricks and mortar shop will be opening at its regular time from 12pm to 5pm, but we hope we’ll get a chance to say hi to a few of you folks from out of town.
Thanks again for your business and support,
Jon & Liz
