Now look here! I've been waiting to meet you both since last year. :gaah:Enough of this hoping and trying, dang nabbit! Make a commitment and BE there! You absolutely will not be disappointed. This will be the best one ever! The names of vendors listed should be enough to seal the deal....
<coming down from the box> Please come? Pretty, pretty please? With your choice of ink on top? :blush:

With an appeal like that from Esterbex, how could I refuse?
It is fairly obvious from what has already been written here that there is a lot of interest, and great enthusiasm.
The hotel looks good, and the surrounding area looks really interesting, I will be going. :thumbup:

huh? henry simpole is truffle finder?

and just so ya'll know, the area in little rock around the hotel is beautiful... across the bridge. but the side where the hotel is, is still nice, but not as much to see or walk to. there are a couple of strips as you get closer towards the bridge that have some awesome looking shops and restaurants now i think about it. actually i've always wanted to go in to those... hmm...

also, the flying saucer, flying fish, and flying burrito eateries are all really really good and have fun wall decor inside. not too pricey either. i think you eat more beer at the flying saucer though, than food. :thumbup:

Thanks to all of you who have indicated you are coming to our show.

The show is really shapping up. More vendors are making tables reservations. We are pleased to officially announce that Mr. Henry Simpole from London, England has graciously agreed to join us as a vendor at the show. We are humbled and honored to have such an acclaimed pensmith with us in Little Rock, Arkansas. Below is an updated vendor list as of February 2 ...

Mauricio Aguilar ... www.VintagePen.net
Susan Nichols
Mike Masuyama ... www.MikeItWork.com
Rick Beckham ... Crafted Woods
Susan Wirth
Vanness Pen Store
Fernando Padilla
Jerry Thomsen
Danny Fudge ... www.TheWritePen.net
Brian & Lisa Anderson ... www.Esterbrook.net
Joel Hamilton & Sherrell Tyree ... www.Ink-Pen.com
JohnTurner
Peter Miller
Brad Lee
Aslan Haydar
Sam Highsmith
Henry Simpole ...
www.HenrySimpole.com

We have been receiving emails and phone calls from pen enthusiasts in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Gerogia. We are delighted to hear folks from these states are coming to our show. There are a couple of pen collectors in the Dallas area who are talking about car pooling the 5-hour drive to Little Rock.

I intend to compile a list or good restaurants in the area, including low, medium and more exclusive ones with their respective addresses, and add that list to this thread before the show.

I can't go Friday b/c of school, but I'll be going Saturday, probably around lunch give or take a few hours. I'll come without a penny to my name most likely. :roflmho: but I'll have fun looking and meeting people. i'll probably make a little name tag with my avatar and user name on it as well to wear around like a big goofus. :P

Still looks like it just might be do-able and if so, I'll be very easy to spot.

Shawn and Nola, I just can't wait! I will be there the entire time! I will be scoping for you both! The name tag with FPN id is a good idea. But I know what you guys look like already.

If nothing else goes wrong with the house ... should be able to be there. I wanted to set up and see how well my pen boxes would be received. Difficult to paint with the weather we've had, as well as trying to move.
