I just wanted to add a post thanking everyone for a fantastic day. Me and my wife (even though she was really dragged along) had the best time.
It was our first pen show and what really shocked us was how friendly everyone was. Ian and Jeremy it was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge with us, for me it was a massive learning experience. I can fully recommend the show to anyone and although I have been using fountain pens for about 2 years now, my knowledge of vintage pens is very limited. However everyone took the time to show us there products, try the pens, some even let us try some of there own personal pens, no hard selling just genuine friendly people who love pens.
We picked up 2 pens on the day. My first taste of vintage flex a Wahl Eversharp that I got from David Wells. I also got a Parker Vacumatic from Jeremy who was very helpful and gave us a huge amount of information about the Vacumatic pen's.
Anyone interested can see photos of the pens that I purchased here: http://imgur.com/a/X4nlW
My photo's really don't do the vacumatic justice, the material is so nice. But even there it looks fantastic!
This was my first pen show but it won't be my last!
Thank you all for a wonderful day out.
See you all at the next show,
