I found a pen shop in Seville. Haven’t been able to look for pen shops this trip, usually a vacation trip activity. But this trip is different. Looking for an apartment in Spain, and too many family members going in different directions. To “help”. I’m more like a scurrying mouse than a guy herding cats, but both concepts apply. Anyway, i got lost and found what looks to be a great store, but it was closed on Sunday So I tried to make it by 8:30 PM today, Monday. But a certain map app took me in the wrong direction. But I vowed to find the place again, and arrived to find it closed at 9:30 pm. So I was peering throught the heavily shuttered window, and saw Platinum, Sailor, Pels, and many more. Then I spied a glimpse of a guy way back behind a lot of stuff way in the back. So out came that cursed product of the Apple tree, but changed to a source of hope from its prior tangled ball of wool-ness. He answered the phone and explained he was CLOSED, but I told him to look out the door. And he opened up for me! I had a good time seeing some fabulous stuff, then his wife called him to get home so I bought a converter for the cheap gp nib Inoxcrom I got 5 cities ago in a used goods shop in Barcelona, and will try to be on time tomorrow. i just learned more about Ferrer Papelería from A traveller from Bath, writing on https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Attraction_Review-g187443-d16814412-Reviews-Papeleria_Ferrer-Seville_Province_of_Seville_Andalucia.html. “Four generations have traded from this establishment, the concept of which dates as far back as 1856. This shop, in the same location for almost 200 years, has been selling quills, fountain pens, all kinds of papers, sealing wax (the real stuff – not like the candle wax imitation only available in Britain) note books, pencils, school materials and, for the collector, decorative implements 1870 style hydrometers sand clocks, terrestrial globes and quill sets. These and many more, a real treasure trove for the antiquarian, historian and calligrapher …” I showed him my two Nemosyne stubs, and gave him the web address for this place, I have vowed to not buy pens of great import and cost, but my Birthdat was yesterday, and Father’s day is 5 days away. We’ll see tomorrow…
