Saturday's chilly trip up to Portobello road wasn't bad for such a cold day!

I sold a few vintage pens, to tourists mainly, one of whom had come all the way from Australia, and had been told that he 'must' go and visit Henry at Portobello Market if he was able to on a Saturday, [he is a member of a local pen collector's club!] So, it was nice to think that I was that famous, if only locally! He bought two Conway Stewart pens, and went away very happy!

I was only offered three vintage pens to buy during the coarse of the day, Two Parker 51's, and a Bronze Striped medium size Sheaffer Balance pen with a military clip, and a feather-lite nib, in very good condition, which is now fully restored and is 'in stock'!

All in all, it was a good day!

Truffle Finder. :) :D :excl:

Good morning BBS!

I can't honestly say whether I could do that sort of repair, but I would like to see it first anyway before attempting to do it.

Possibly see you up there then!

Truffle Finder. :) :D

I'm sure I will see you there at some point, but alas not with a cracked wood Omas - I wasn't going to pay that much!

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)

I'm not exactly what one would call a 'fan' of New Year's Eve, [being an Alcoholic, in recovery!] but I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone who pops in here, a very Happy New Year.

Ever since this thread was started by GWP quite a few years ago, I don't think that anyone thought that it would run for as long as it has done, or that it would continue to be of interest to fountain pen lovers, as it has done. For me anyway, it has been a very enlightening journey, as I really did not realise [when this thread first started, a few years ago] that so many people knew or indeed 'had' heard of me!

 

Happy New Year!

Truffle Finder, [AKA Henry Simpole!] :P :)

Thank you, Henry.

 

Happy New Year to you too.

 

A year full of beautiful creations which I have been admiring for a long moment, already.

Does anyone on here know much about a man called Du Clos?

Someone has sent one to me which needs major surgery doing to it!

Just thought that I'd ask, as I'd never heard of him. Does anyone know when the man died?

Hi there!

Today at portobello road, it seemed that most of my customers were out and about looking for Parker 51's! It is quite understandable really [they are exceptionally good working fountain pens], but not necessarily all on the same day!

I did sell some other types of pens during the course of the day, and despite there being 'planned engineering works going on on the Central Line, the rain held off, and the journey wasn't too disrupted.

Truffle Finder. :)

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
