Trading Pens For Non-Pen Related Items

Jay Bar

Recommended Posts

I just thought I would pose this question.

Have any of you ever trade pens to someone for something non-pen related? If so, what was it?

I have been into fountain pens for a couple years now and just made my first trade. I traded a few pens I don't really use to a friend for a couple of gorgeous custom tobacco pipes he was getting rid of. But there was a pen involved. There will also be a Parker Sonnet included with the pipes. I have one already and loved it. This one is a different finish, though.

I've been contemplating bartering some of my high end perfume / nail lacquer (penhaligon's, ormond jayne, arabian oud, chanel -good- stuff) for pen related things or nibs/ink/paper. Most of the pen folks I've met are male; not sure how many use cosmetics or scent. I suppose a fair number have female partners though...


My lab has a no-perfume rule, along with not being able to wear nail polish or have nails longer than 2mm (gloves blowouts are bad, yeah).


I probably have more cash tied up in nail polish than pens, astoundingly enough.

Not really traded, because my pens are usually too special to be of interest for others. But I have sold pens to fund other projects (don't know if that counts, too)

      @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.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
