Anybody know of a place to buy Visconti pens in Canada? I'm in the market for one and I am starting to do research on on the models and pricing. Amazon.ca is pretty pricy (I know Visconti is pricy but Amazon doesn't have any good deals for this brand)

 

Thanks friends!

Phidon Pens in Cambridge, Ontario carry Visconti.  A great store run by really nice people, not much of a web presence but give them a call or pay them a visit.

Stylo.ca in Quebec deals in Visconti, and other Italian brands.  I recently purchased an OMAS from them and was very satisfied.  They also accept paypal if you email them.

In Toronto, try Laywine's on Bellair St (Yorkville).    I don't know if they still have a webpage; the last one was laughable, and they knew it.

Is their webpage some kind of joke?  There are no inks to anywhere that would enable anyone to se what hey actually have.

It's how they roll.  If you are in the FP lifestyle, you tend to appreciate the less flashy and trendy things that are going on in your world....

 

I guess the lack of detailing everything cuts down on about a dozen rat ****s every week calling up and asking for pricing and then sniveling how they can get it a lot cheaper on the internet.

You have me confused, if they detailed their products, along with prices, as most places do, why would people call to ask for pricing?  On the contrary, not showing prices on the web would more likely invite calls. 

 

And what would be the "explanation" for simply listing brand names without indicating the products they have of each brand?
