Misfit posted a topic in It Writes, But It Is Not A Fountain Pen ....So I'm not done Christmas shopping, mostly because the ones left aren't supplying ideas. But I find I'm buying for myself. Part of it is I waited too long to buy Retro 51 Space pens from US sites. I found a blog entry at some site i don't follow that had a link to a British seller, which still had the Retro 51 Gemini, Mercury and Apollo rollerball pens. First I ordered the Apollo, which is now sold out, then I convinced myself I needed the other two because of the Summer Field Notes release and the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing next year. And I was watching Cooper's Treasure on demand. I'm wondering if anyone else is doing some outside buying for themselves while still shopping for Christmas gifts for others.
Brianm_14 posted a topic in Market WatchAt Goulet Pens, from now until the end of the year, if you purchase one of a selection of a number of pens, you may pick out a 90 ml bottle of Monteverde ink for free. I just bought a $20 Online fountain one (which I had gone there to buy, anyway) and received a $15 bottle of a nice red Monteverde ink at no cost. In the end, I paid $20 for the pen and ink, plus the standard $6.95 for shipping -not a bad deal. On another order, I'll grab a few other items -again, things I'd buy at Goulet anyway- to make the shipping fee even more worthwhile. A couple of pen and ink orders could settle Christmas or other holiday shopping for a few friends; the pen -and ink-selection is really fairly good. Some may wish to drop by and take a look. Brian
