Hello, FPNers!

 

I know a lot of you were unable to make to the pen show.  I have some pictures for you all!   :P  Unfortunately, my camera died about 20 minutes in, so there aren't as many pictures as I would've liked.   -_- The boyfriend took most of these, and I took a few- neither of us are very adept photographers, so please be kind!  I think he did a good job, haha.  

 

Without further ado, pictures!

I've included all the pictures I have in this post, save for my spoils.   :P  

If you'd like to read a first-timer's perspective on the show and see what I purchased, you can visit my blog: http://www.dailypenning.com

 

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy the pictures! :)

I also picked up 2 bottles of the Scribe's Ink. The Dark Blue and Brown. Thought $3 for 4oz bottles were just too good to pass up.

@mhguda Thank you!  I am in love with my pens and really glad that I was able to try them up front.  Takes the risk out of buying vintage pens for someone who has 0 knowledge on pen repair.  :)

 

@zchen Yeah!  I bought the brown and green.  I tried a little bit of the green in one of my pens, but it was a wet writer and caused feathering combined with this particular ink.  I'll try a different pen before I pass any real judgment.  If all else fails, I'll use it with my dip pens mixed with some gum arabic.

After enjoying BTLines's photos, y'all can head over to fpgeeks for Ricky's reportage and photos. He's already started (and is far from finished) uploading his report: AltecGreen at fpgeeks.
