It's your party! What ink would you want to receive or buy on your birthday? This can include any discontinued or LE inks you've always wanted too.

Crates of Bung Boxes since they're too hard to get and too expensive here.

I would buy a bottle of Kingdom Note Lidth's Jay. I'm using the last of my samples now.  I think I will also be acquiring a few more KWZIs, perhaps BungBox Mother's Pink and the lovely JustWrite concentrates especially Barrier Reef Blue.


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

KWZI Grey Plum.

KWZI Honey.

vintage Quink Permanent Violet (yes I have some but that's why I want more...).

vintage Skrip Peacock (what I said about the Quink -- only MORE so...  :drool:).

Parker Penman Sapphire.

 

And for giggles, I'll throw in one that I don't think exists, sadly: an unscented version of De Atramentis Patchouli; great color but smelled awful (and not a bit like patchouli at all).

I would very much like to try Bung Box Sweet Potato Purple.  I doubt it would become my "ONLY" purple BUT it is the "not knowing" that makes it so desirable.

I wouldn't mind a bottle of MB Winter Glow. It's one of the nicer reds they've made.

Sailor's please . . . all of them!  Or if that is too hard, I will take all of the Caran d'Ache inks.
