Hello FPN!

 

I am a fountain pen newbie, and I'm excited to join this community of writing enthusiasts. I am a writer of fiction novels, a blogger, and a homeschooling mom of 3. I got my oldest hooked on ink, too! LOL

 

We have spent many hours on YouTube, and fell in love with the Goulets. Now I'm looking for more, and we missed the Ohio Pen Show. So if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!!!

 

We are looking for a store that actually has a selection of pens to see, sample, etc.

Please advise!

TIA

 

~Deanna~

Welcome, Deanna ! 

 

Which fountain pen do you use for daily writing ?   Do your kids have their own fps ?

Hello Deanna,

  I'm also from Northeast Ohio.  I haven't found a store with fountain pens, other than a small selection at Staples or Office Max.  I've started searching at garage sales and learned to re-sac vintage pens.  It's fun!

Greetings from Pittsburgh!

Not sure about NE Ohio, but there's a couple of places in Columbus, IIRC.  One is a stationery store along the main drag in Short North; the other an actual pen shop (some new, some vintage) but is kinda an odd place (I went in there last year on my way to the Ohio Pen Show, and the guy in the store was wearing a straw boater -- and is also really opinionated...).

YMMV

Welcome!

More people from NEO than I realized. Maybe this club idea can actually happen? Thanks @deannasjoy for starting that thread in the clubs forum!

Cheers.

My ink-swap post(s) become out of date eventually.  My signature is always current.  If you want to swap some ink, here's what I have:  Diamine:  Ancient Copper, Oxblood, Poppy Red, Red Dragon, Sherwood Green; Iroshizuku: Kon-peki, Ku-jaku, Take-sumi; Noodlers:  54th Mass, BSB, Purple Martin, X-Feather, Widow Maker; Private Reserve: Blue Suede.  I'm partial to highly saturated inks, but am open to suggestions. PM if interested.
