Hey guys, 

 

Does anyone know where I can pick up a Lamy 2000 (for less than $200) in Canada? I live in the Greater Toronto Area and shipping/customs/exchange rate coming in from the US is expensive. I've seen some retailers charge $200+ for a Lamy 2000 and that is out of my price range right now but I am dying to get my hands on one. 

Any suggestions?

I suggest buying from overseas and having it shipped via registered mail to avoid import duty surprises. If you look at some European websites and remove the VAT it can be had for around $150-no-tax. My fav Lamy places are Appelbloom and Fontoplumo though I don't remember which one I got my 2000 from. I would recommend US sites but the exchange rate kills the deal. All the best!

Great service from CultPens in Devon, UK, and £124 + VAT.  (No affiliation, just a regular and happy customer of theirs.)

Not sure you can find a 2k for that price in Canada, esp. considering the taxes...

Ok, I did a little checking... Unfortunately the running low on a L2K is around US$125 and that's from Amazon and shipping and import gets messy. Do you travel to Buffalo / Niagara? For $2 you can have it shipped there and pick it up in your pocket

All great ideas everyone, thanks for pitching in and helping me out! 

That's the downside of being in Canada where FP are not very prevalent.

www.Stylo.ca is an online vender that does carry Lamy 2k at $199.00 CDN so it just meets your request.

Have bought many a pens from them, good service.

Amazon.ca sometimes has them for just under $200 and free shipping if you have prime. They might even drop every once in awhile.
