I've got over a dozen vendors coming to offer the latest and greatest in pens! Every year, this event is the big one! We've got pens that are great value for the dollar, as well as limited editions that you normally wouldn't get to see! There will be more pens in the store than you can imagine, and we are sure to have something for everyone!
So far in attendance we have: Aurora, Montegrappa, Esterbrook, Monteverde, Conklin, Hugo Boss, Marlen, Online, Parafernalia, Pineider, Stipula, Diplomat, Nettuno, David Oscarson, Eagle Pen Company, Alan Shaw, Michael's Fat Boy, Bill Enderlin (Fountain Pen Repair), Write Notepads, David Silber (Selling Vintage Pens), Caran d'Ache, Tim Girdler, and Richard L. Greenwald LLC..
This event begins 11/11/2018 and repeats every month until 11/11/2018

Topic: A presentation on Porsche Design (writing instruments & others) by VPCer Ray (who did a nice talk on Montblanc 149/146 writing instruments at our January meeting) + our twice-annual INK SWAP! (full/partial ink bottles, ink cartridges are all fine for trade or for sale). If you don't have any ink to trade/sell, no worries--it's all completely voluntary!
Our secondary topic is always Newest Acquisitions, so if you have any new pens, ink or pen-related accessories (e.g. pen cases), please bring them with you to show. If you have stuff to bring, great! If not---no worries!
Please note: this is the last meeting of 2018 as we do not meet in December. Regular meetings will resume in January 2019, at a venue to be announced.
