Giveaway! Bleu Ocean, Stormy Grey & Rouge Hematite

I hope you’re all enjoying this beautiful weather! The long winter seems like a distant dream/nightmare and I hope you’re wandering around outside in shorts and a t-shirt, and maybe getting some ice cream. In our new neighbourhood, Leslieville, there’s an ice-cream shop on Queen that always seems packed with people, and even a few dogs waiting longingly outside, but we haven’t tried it yet. One day, soon enough!

Jon and I are really enjoying the new space and also the new neighbourhood! I think we’re both a little sad to think about all the old regulars who lived around the corner from 906 Dundas West, and who came by to pick up an ink or a notebook but who would stay for forty-five minutes to shoot the breeze, but it’s also been a lot of fun to meet some East enders. A few people from our building, which is mostly commercial units, have stopped by to introduce themselves, and we’ve had a chance to meet some people who just live in the area. In fact, our building faces a large residential building, and we’ve had a few neighbours who have just seen us out their window, and who have come by to say hello!

Being a fountain pen shop and hanging out with people who use fountain pens all day, it’s been interesting to tell people-not-yet-initiated-into-this-wonderful-world that we sell inks and fountain pens and stationery. You’ll be pleased to know the response has been really great! Maybe because there are a lot of graphic designers and creative people around here, but instead of the “People are still using those old-fangled gadgets?” I sometimes expect, we’re getting a lot of “Wow, that’s super interesting! I’m so glad to see that there’s still so much interest in writing and these kind of tools!”

Before we moved, Jon and I discussed a few promotions and giveaways to help celebrate and publicize our move. Well, things kind of got away from us (no kidding), but we’re still celebrating!

We’re giving away a bottle of the newly released Bleu Ocean, as well as a bottle of Stormy Grey and Rouge Hematite.

    Hey Jon and Liz! I hope the new location is treating you guys well, and maybe I’ll get a chance to visit your new location on my birthday. If I got a chance to try any of these I think the Stormy Grey would suit me best. I’m luckily not that far from you guys and maybe I’ll get some time to stop by on a day off. People keep saying it’s not that humid yet, and I think they need to tell that to the sugar in my sugar bowl!

    I still haven’t made it to the shop, but one of these days I will! I’m always on the lookout for beautiful inks so your Instagram always inspires.
    The Bleu Ocean is my favourite of these inks because it looks like something a mermaid would use.

    Oh, I love the red, and the blue, and the grey! I also love the new shop! It looks great, especially the string lights and the chalk wall. All the best!

    I like 18 degrees which seems to happen for 10 minutes 6 times a year:)

    Hello Jon & Liz

    Kinda late to the party but going to give it a shot anyways. I definitely would say the Stormy Grey is going to be my favorite from the looks of it. Simply because of the slight graphite look to it which reminds me of all the school work that i should be doing instead of daydreaming.
    Not really able to enjoy the nice weather since im in summer school but would love to sit on the porch with an iced tea when i do get the chance. 🙂

    I have yet to try the ocean blue, but, from the reviews, I suspect it will be my favorite when I do. Of the two that I’ve used, indefinitely like stormy grey better than the red. I did like the red more than I thought I would because the sample images I saw on the Internet just don’t do it justice. Nice set of 3 colours though.

    I hope I get a chance to go to Toronto to visit the new shop! My favourite is Stormy Grey because the gold makes the grey even more interesting!

    Hi there. Blue Ocean is my all time favourite. Its a classy blue and it makes a strong statement. I use it daily and use it special occasion greeting cards. As a result I am down to the last drop. Keeping my fingers crossed. Congrats on new location we came from the west end on your opening day.

    I haven’t had time to visit the new location yet but I really want to take a calligraphy class when they’re available!
    I’ve always wanted to try Stormy Grey since I first saw it… Bleu Ocean looks so shimmery and mysterious as well!

    Hello Liz/Jon,
    As usual I’ll be there every weekend for the rest of the summer. It’s seems I can’t get enough of all the inks available…it’s so crazy…think I’m an INKHEAD!!! (Well that’s what my wife calls me). Sadly I haven’t tried any of the J Herbins anniversary but if I had to choose Rouge Hematite would be the one.
    Hopefully this summer will be spent writing and trying to watch as many classic movies from the 1940s.
    Like I always say an adventure is only a bottle of ink away…(ohh no she’s sees me posting)
    😀

    Hey guys, I’m so sad that you’ve moved away from Dundas. It used to be just around the corner from me and now its a ttc ride away. 😦 But good job on the move, I will visit sometime soon.
