Great Service From Dromgoole's


Recommended Posts

Some of you may have been aware of the Namiki Yukari Grapevine I purchased from Dromgoole's at the Dallas Pen Show that turned out to have a Pilot nib.


To make a long story short, Larry Dromgoole arranged for an exchange of the pen for one with a proper Namiki nib. The pen is to be a gift to a good friend of mine who is a winemaker, and I'm sure he will be pleased.


I appreciate Larry's help in taking care of this, and I highly recommend his store to everyone. He knows how to take care of his customers!

Glad he got it straightened out for you Jim! I hope your friend is very happy. Funny you mentioned Dromgoole's today. I received my Dromgoole's-USS Texas made by Noodler's TODAY. I am thrilled with that ink. They fixed me right up too. I already loved their Blue Steel, and now I have the USS Texas too. Both wonderful inks made exclusively for them by Noodler's. I haven't bought anything but ink from them, but after what you said, and my past two purchases, I'm open to buying more from them. They packed up my ink wonderfully, and wasted no time getting my precious ink to me with no problems at all.

Visiting Dromgoole's was a highlight of my trip to Houston earlier this year. Got a great pen, but it was a lot of fun just to look around and talk to the fine folx who work there.

Been visiting the shop for 7 years now. Larry and family go out of their way to make EVERONE who walks through the door welcome no matter how you are dressed or what you might want to purchase. You can dip almost any pen in the shop to try before buying, too.

I wanted to provide some follow-up on the grapevine Yukari Namiki pen. I gave it to my winemaker friend, and he was surprised and delighted. Thanks again to Larry for making it possible.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
