FayeV posted a topic in IntroductionsHello from the San Francisco Bay Area! Does anyone know of any B&M pen stores in the south bay, preferably around the Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Santa Clara area? I'd like to look at some pens in person if I can, but I have the feeling my only option is to order online. I am a FP neophyte even though I have been writing with FPs for decades. My interest in FPs has been revived recently when my 9 yr old daughter expressed an interest in FPs. I recently showed her how to fill the ink converter on my MB Noblesse and explained how to write gently with it. I thought it was cute when she was reading Geronimo Stilton's "Paws Off, Cheddarface!" book, pointed out an illustration on one of the pages (pg 100) and asked, "Is that a fountain pen?" Yep, it looked like a fountain pen. Anyhow, now I'm looking around for a possible first fountain pen for my daughter. I've read numerous reviews/comments here and elsewhere and have narrowed it down to Lamy Safari and Pelikan Pelikano ... leaning toward the Pelikano because I don't think she'll like the Safari grip. And I'm pretty sure I can get a converter for the Pelikano. While I'm window shopping here, I thought I'd also look for an everyday pen for myself and am considering the Pilot Metropolitan MR (that blue leopard print looks really pretty!), a Parker Vector and a Hero 448. I'm also eyeing the Pelikan M200 which everyone here seems to rave about, but I'm concerned about some people's complaint about it being too lightweight, which is why I'd like to try holding it in my hands at a store.
