Some time ago I was walking along to a newsagent and to me it literally looked like it was stuck in 1970. Old ads were on the window, and the stuff it sold was either expired 20 years ago or an item that cant expire. On one of the displays I saw 3 Sheaffer No Nonsense BPTs ($4 each) and a Pilot mech pencil ($7) I couldnt recognize. There was also what looked to be a Parker 51 but I soon realised it was a Hero 616 ($8) . I never knew 616s sold outside of China (apart from online, of course). Weird. So my advice to you is to wander into places arent Pen stores. There can be good finds in there too! :D
Cheers, Eric.

P.S. Can anyone identify the Pilot pencil?
