Just wanted to share my recent experience with Oscar Braun Pen Co. I looked high and low for the cheapest price on my Vanishing Point Black Matte (bold). Now, some of you may take issue with trying to pay the cheapest price for a pen, but I think that's a whole separate topic. As far as my experience with Oscar Braun it was nothing short of exceptional. I emailed Pam at Oscar Braun and received a response within a couple hours as to price and how I could mail my payment. I mailed payment on a Monday and the pen was shipped on Wednesday and the pen was received on Friday. Throughout the whole process I received E-mails concerning the status of my payment and when the pen was shipped.

Love the pen and will do business again with Oscar Braun.

You'll find a legion of Pam Braun lovers on this site. She's the best AND she's a bona-fide USA bricks & mortar store with the best prices one could ask for.

Unfortunately Pam Braun does not accept cards or Paypal, which pretty much makes it impossible for people not based in the US to buy from her. :crybaby:


You can always get a intenational money order in USD. But I would just try asking Pam nicely and see what happens.

Bought my first ever FP from Pam a few years ago, she talked with me via phone, was very paitent with the noob, no hard pressure sale. She had my pen shipped the same day I posted my check, definatly a super woman.

I am in Canada and have always paid by US money order without any problems. If I am in the market for a recently released pen, I always check with Pam first before I buy. I and those in my pen club have bought many pens from Pam over the years and the service and prices have always been great!

I know it is redundant at this point, but I must also give kudos to Pam for pricing and customer service.

i saw this news, too. i think it is posted on PenTrace. This is horrible news :( Pam is one of the best in the business, and she ALWAYS has the lowest price. Not sure where I'll get my next VP now :( hopefully, i'll get one in the next month or so while she is still operating.

It is important to buy as many pens now as you can. Once the store closes, you will have to pay more elsewhwere. So, buying a lot this month and next month will save you money in the long run.

At least that is how I am trying to explain it to my spouse. :)

This is the excuse I'll use, too, when my black carbonesque VP and burgundy Knight come.

Ordered another pen from Oscar Braun. Wanted to get a Pilot Custom 74 but she only has fine left so instead bought a Lamy 2000 in a medium nib for the total price of $100. Unbelievable price and cant wait to get the Lamy.

Just wanted to bump this topic up...Take a peek at what's left: http://www.oscarbraunpens.com/

:yikes:

I don't know when she is closing her store, but if you are in the market for any of the pens listed, I would suggest acting fast! I paid at least 50% more for my own Lamy Studio purchased at a store here in Vancouver, so Pam's prices are excellent and I always had great service from her. Thanks for all the nice pens, Pam; we'll miss buying from your store in Michigan :bawl:
