Hello,

 

I was getting ready to place an order on Anderson Pens and when it came to shipping, it has the option to pickup at the Michigan Pen show.  They show on their site that they will be at the Michigan Pen show on November 17-18 but the link they have is for a website that has not been updated in several years.

 

The newest website I can find for a Michigan pen show has a bunch of info from 2016 and just says they are talking about a 2017 show but nothing after that.

 

Anyone know of or have a link to the details for the 2017 show?

 

Thanks,

Frank

I found out who the show coordinator was and got a prompt reply by email so I'll answer my own question for benefit of any other people interested in a Michigan pen show.

 

  When:  Friday and Saturday, November 17-18 – weekend before Thanksgiving Day

                              Friday setup hours:  1:00pm – 3:00pm

                              Friday public hours: 3:00pm – 7:00pm

                         Saturday public hours: 10:0am – 6:00pm

Where:   Four Points by Sheraton, same location as last year when hotel was called the Crowne Plaza Novi

              Address:  27000 S. Karevich Drive. Novi, MI 48377

 

Note that the hotel is undergoing a name change.  Last year during our pen show at the same venue it was called the Crowne Plaza Novi, but it was changed to its current Novi Oaks Hotel.  By the time of our pen show in November it will be called Four Points by Sheraton.

Thanks for looking into this and posting the information.  This isn't far from me.  I'll probably attend on Saturday.


Regards,

Well, not making that one.  It's the same weekend as something else that I really don't want to miss (and the show is in the wrong direction -- we'll probably be heading east for Thanksgiving at the end of that weekend).

I've kinda blown my "this year only" real shopping budget (okay a good chunk of that budget got blown on the two M405s :blush:) but there are definitely some things on the wish list -- although repairs on some pens are a higher priority.

Too close to the Ohio pen show for me. I wish the Michigan show was in July during Cherry season. It would make a nice beginning or ending of a vacation.

Indeed - I would make the drive to Michigan were the show in the Summer!

I'm going to keep my enthusiasm going from the Ohio show and be at the Michigan show when the doors open on Friday.

I am definitely going to be there on Saturday.  I am waking up early, driving up, driving back (only snow shall stop me!!!).  I'm told this will be a smaller, more intimate show than Ohio.  Looking forward to trying it on!
