Hey Everyone,

I've just moved to Atlanta last week and have no Idea where to search for fountain pens and ink. If someone could help me where to find these in a B & M store then it would be great! I live in North Ave, so is there something close by.

Thanks in advance for you inputs,
Steve.

I've been to ArtLite once (right before I moved from GA to AZ) and really like the place. They have a nice selection of pens and the salesperson was very helpful when I asked to try the pens. They also have a good collection of notebooks.

There's also

Sam Flax

They are open on Sundays.

You just missed the Southeast Pen Collectors' Club meeting at TOPS (aka Total Fine Writing) in Smyrna yesterday. Our next meeting will be the first Sunday in October from 2-4 P.M. at the same location. The store is open at that time should you wish to make a purchase.

Regards,
Ashland
