Thanks for sharing, what an eye opener for those who never been to a pen show like myself.
Writing give me the opportunity to reflect and be mindful about the present moment.

Your pics may be the reason I go this year. Thank you.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Great report! You make me want to go! But I most likely will have to just stick with the Dallas show, LA is a bit far. ;)

Beautiful photos. I am a new FP enthusiast and this year's show will be my first show. It looks very exciting!

I do have some questions though, I hope it is okay to ask here.

I will be there on Friday looking for parts and pens, and do not want my own table. Do I still have to pay the $55 trader fee for myself and boyfriend (who has no interest at all in FPs)? Is it better to bring cash?

Yes. If you want to go to any day other than Sunday, it's $55. The $55 is good for all four days. Contact Boris Rice about spouses or SOs. You would not the the first to have a SO that is a 'pen civilian'.


It is always best to bring cash especially for parts. Most of those guys do not take credit cards. Some dealers will take credit cards but cash is still king.

Wonderful, I am so excited for this year. I will be sure to bring lots of cash but not too much in case of overspending :)

Overspending is what it is all about. :roflmho:

Last year was the first year I did not go over budget.



We'll see about this year.

I will have three defenses: a limited (but generous, of course) amount of cash, a modest shopping list and a firm 'bodyguard' to prevent any divergence from the path :)

But of course, all defenses are null and void if the offer or find is particularly good!
