Fountain pens don’t take up much space!

Also... pens are so light, and I would get souvenirs for my vacation anyways....

Yes, I really am going to sell some, as soon as I take some photos.


Anyone owning three or more working pens is in no position to disparage choices by others.

Fountain pens don’t take up much space!
 

 

That's how I got started with fountain pens (and ballpoints, mechanical pencils, etc.) in the first place.  I previously collected early phonographs and records.  After buying enough old phonographs to have at least one in every room of the house, my wife looked at me and asked, "Can't you collect something smaller?"  20 years later she says I've traded one addiction for another, though she reluctantly admits that the pens do not take up as much space.  In fact, a large part of my collection is housed in one cabinet originally made for cylinder records.
