I Came, I Saw, I Bought a Little: My Mostly Measly Ohio Pen Show Purchases

2016 Ohio Pen Show purchases

Okay, it’s a slim haul, but I’m sure you’ll identify with me saying that I still spent more than I intended at the Ohio Pen Show. I didn’t really intend to buy anything. And, yes, feel free to be aghast: there aren’t a lot of fountain pen things in the pile.

That’s because I went to the show with my 16-year-old daughter, and there is no way she could have spent two days shopping for fountain pens. Which is fine. I actually like other pens and pencils, too.

  1. Sounds like it was a wonderful mother daughter trip! Can’t wait for the post about Binder’s class and that jumbo nib. Any chance you might do a quick look on the Autopoint pencils?

    1. Tune in tomorrow for my look at The Blob. 🙂 Binder’s class, yes: it was so worthwhile, and I vow to write something up and post it. Great idea on the Autopoint pencil, too.


      1. Whoa on the nib! I had no idea there was that much difference in the tipping between the two.
        Fingers crossed on the a post on the Autopoint. 🙂
        Thanks for the great posts; I enjoy them very much.

  2. Thank you Laura for this great post. Almost as good as being there! Have fun trying your new purchases. The Pelikan BB sounds amazing and I’ll look forward to seeing a sample, perhaps with the fresh bottle of Edelstein! Rupert.
