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.

Last Day Prizes! Saturday, May 9th at 906 Dundas Street West

We’re closing the shop on Saturday, May 9th, and we’re packing everything up!

We’re pretty excited for the new place, but we’re also hoping to say good bye to this tiny shop that has given us so much opportunity has let this baby business grow into something is now supporting our entire family. Jon says I need to get my nostalgia in check, as I’ve got shelves to assemble and drywall dust to sweep up.

We’ll be open on Saturday, May 9th from 11am – 6pm, our usual hours, and we’d be so pleased if you could stop by!

Stock may be winding down as we’ve already started moving some of it to the new space, but we’ve got a few exciting prizes, so come by and try your luck! Mixed in among the sorry-please-play-again, we’ll have some bottles of ink (could there be an Iroshizuku??), a couple of fountain pens, a few of those illustrious Palomino pencils, notebooks, and more.

We’re on track (fingers crossed) to open the new space Saturday, May 16th, but stayed tuned. We’ve still got a few balls in the air as the new place gets its last finishing touches.

Rhodia 80th Anniversary Celebration Giveaway

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You may vaguely recall those beautiful white special edition Rhodia pads that disappeared very quickly from our shop (we tried to get more! we’re still trying!). These were released in celebration of Rhodia’s 80th Anniversary.

Even more special, however, is that we have been invited to join the cool kids in giving away these limited edition pad and pencil sets!

Come see us in our brick & mortar shop sometime this week and speak the magic words:

“Please give me a Rhodia box set”
“I heard there was a Rhodia giveaway”
“I could use some Rhodia paper and a Rhodia pencil”
etc.

…to receive your very own celebration.

*Limited quantity- come soon!
