I found out this weekend that our local pen store Congdon and Crome is closing in about 2 weeks.
I am incredibly upset by this, since they have been a fixture in the community for 109 years. So sad to see a legacy pen store fold like this. I went in this weekend for a last look around and picked up which is probably my last FP purchase from this great retailer. I grabbed a Conklin and stocked up on inks. They were basically giving everything away for 30% off or more since they don't want to be left with stock. Anyway, if there are any other local FPNers in the south bay or peninsula you might want to make a trip over there this weekend since i think they close their doors right after the 4th weekend. I may go back there again this weekend to say goodbye to some of the really nice employees.
