  1. Thanks Laura for the reply, I went to Instagram and clicked on a pen I would like to buy, thing is I don’t understand how to conduct business on that site.

    1. With Mike (Woodshed Pen Co.) when there’s a pen you want to buy, you DM him on Instagram. They sell pretty quickly, but sometimes he’s got more he’s making. (I think this is the quickest way for him to sell pens, without having to invest in a lot of sales infrastructure, and he does that to keep his prices low.)

        1. Direct message. It’s a private instead of a public post. If you go to someone’s profile you’ll see the option to Message them. (Then you see replies by clicking the paper airplane thingy at the top of your own homepage to the right of the word Instagram.)

        2. On Instagram, search “woodshedpenco” and that’s it. Mike Allen is the person behind Woodshed Pen Co. There’s a rectangle bar there that says “Message” and that’s what you press. He’s a great guy! Hope you find one of his pens to your liking. 🙂

  2. I found the site for ” Shop, Woodshed Pen Company,” but it doesn’t take me anywhere except hats and knives, no pens. What’s up with that site? I wanted to shop some pens, Is there something wrong with that site?

    1. I don’t think he uses it. He puts his pens on Instagram, and sells at some pen shows. I follow him on Instagram, and that’s where I found my second Woodshed pen.

    1. Remember buying those cars, too? And Matchbox and other brands? I loved the ones with doors that opened, or with rumble seats. My brother had a bunch, and a cute little case for them. Selecting, showing and trading those seems like a precursor to the fountain pen hobby, now that I think about it. 😀

      1. Yes! I loved playing with cars. We had Matchbox, Corgi and Dinkie as the main brands. Favourites might be the James Bond car, or the Batmobile with extra features or my Mercedes with windscreen wipers which 2operated when the car was pushed along. I didn’t trade them though…just accumulated them and enjoyed getting them out to play with. Life before fountain pens!

        1. My older sister had a James Bond car with a beautiful metallic finish and doors that opened, and an ejector seat! And I am proud to say I heroically swiped it from her on behalf of all the younger siblings — which may sound bad, but if you knew that sister you’d know that what I pulled off was almost literally death-defying, and an act of principled resistance to the forces of evil on a scale of, oh, Braveheart or the Avengers. It was a good car, too. 🙂

      2. OMG, rumble seats! I had one with a rumble seat, and it was the best! Why don’t I have it any more? I also had one that looked just like Jim Rockford’s car in the Rockford Files. Now I want to go on eBay and try to re-acquire all my favorites!
