I'd Buy That For A Dollar


Recommended Posts

Hello! It's been a long time since I've posted here, but I thought that the deal I found last week might intrigue some folks (with pictures).


Apparently the Dollar Tree (US-based store where all items are priced at $1) is now in the business of selling glass pens + coordinating ink!

Quite surprisingly, it's not too scratchy and does a great job retaining ink between dips, both with the provided ink and other FP inks (I have not yet tested it with shellac-based inks.)

The provided ink bottle is 6.8ml (0.23 fl oz) in a dark, mossy green which matches the pen shaft. Very slight shading.

Cool--I'll have to see if that's available near me.


I've had very good success smoothing cheap glass pens with lapping film like I use for nib smoothing.

Was in there on Wednesday and bought small glass containers for ink samples. Never look any further. Guess I will have to go back.


The pen looks good enough and worth the $1.00 price.


Thanks for the heads ups. I was thinking about testing some of their notebooks BUT I have way too much paper anyway.

Well for a dollar, well within my realm of affordability. I'll look into

it at my local dollar store. Thanks for the tip, Dorothynotgale. Cheers.

      @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!
