Correct.

I understand that. However, just posting 100 posts for sake of it doesn't make sense to me. I guess.....I'll take my time !

It's short for Continential US. It excludes Alaska and Hawaii, although as it is used now most people mean USA only. It's because our mail costs is so high. To ship one bottle of Lamy to Germany, non-airmail, it cost me US$ 24.00 :(


Hawaii and Alaska cost more for us to ship to, though usually, we try and find a way to make it happen.

Did you get 10? Easier to ask than count!
PLEASE include me in the drawing, errrr, randomized pick, if I'm not too late. If I am, np.

What a huge & generous PIF! THANK YOU to the benefactor for spreading the joy, and for your coordination efforts, Amberlea.

BTW, if you are in the UK, the UK shipping is MUCH cheaper than the US shipping and you have been moved to that list.

Just received my giveaway! Thank you to amberleadavis and the anonymous benefactor for your generosity! The washi tape was a nice addition, as well. Took a quick dip with a Parker Duofold.

Mine arrived today, too!  Just as Vargouille's photo shows, this was a very cool and exciting package to receive and open.

Tremendous thanks to the grand benefactor and to Amberlea!

Thanks to the donor and to Amberlea for the sample package that arrived in today's mail.  Kudos to the PIFer who went to the trouble of assembling this assortment of excellent goodies and for the very careful packaging.  I've tried to link to a not-very-good photo trying to show the

assortment of 6 different papers and the ink sample and ink cartridge.  Much appreciated and wishing you the best for a speedy recovery.

Hi,

This is a note to extend an enthusiastic "Thank You" to our benefactor. My students will benefit greatly from this, and I wanted to thank Amber and MB (Mysterious Benefactor) for your kindness and generosity. 

Before I award pens, I clean them and ink them up and choose ink for each student, and I am very much looking forward to awarding these lovely pens and the gorgeous ink to a deserving kid.

I'm touched and grateful.

All the best, and thanks again,
David

Shrouded in the black thunderheads the distant lightning glowed mutely like welding seen through foundry smoke. As if repairs were under way at some flawed place in the iron dark of the world.”
