A few weeks ago, we paid a visit to our Kaweco distributors out in Burlington (more on that to come soon! including photos!), and it was great to see and hold and feel some of Kaweco pens we don’t regularly carry. We saw some real beauties, including the Kaweco 1910 Eyedropper ($550 CAD), which I am hoping Jon may one day get me for Christmas.
We did, however, pick up the last eight of the Kaweco Sport Luxe Fountain Pens!
The bad news is that they are literally the last eight units because the pen has been discontinued. And actually, as of writing this post, we only have three left. And coincidentally, one of our favourite customers picked one up earlier today! Great minds think alike 🙂
Happy Friday! As always, we’ve been bustling here, and a few new products have been trickling through onto the website and in the shop. Caleb has learned how to climb onto chairs and then onto the kitchen table, so Jon has been hiding all of our chairs during the day. He’s basically smarter than the dog, now. I read that really intelligent dogs are a match for 2-3 year olds, but I think it’s official that our dog is not the sharpest extra fine point in the pen roll. He’s like a broad/double-broad.
I wanted to share a few snaps of some beautiful Diamine inks. This is all because:
- We’re looking ahead to the next few weeks as potentially halting the shipping of Diamine because of cold weather.
- We got a new shipment of Diamine and there’s lots of great stuff in it.
We are now carrying Parker Sonnets!
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may have noticed that this Parker Sonnet with the brown rubber finish has been popping up all over, like here and here and here. This is mostly because we’re not exactly a large corporation, so the pictures on Instagram are of pens that I’m actually using and cups of tea that I’m actually drinking from. And you might be able to tell that I have had my Sonnet inked up since I first got it.
Some of you may recall when I got my Parker Sonnet and I fell in love. I sometimes get new pens just to check out and see if we’ll like them or if we’ll carry them in the shop, and we have a few dreams in the works coming up, but it’s rarely that I will mention them on the blog if we don’t really have concrete plans to bring them in. I made an exception for the Sonnet because it was just that pen for me. As soon as I got it, I knew I wanted to carry them.
