• Thanks for reading! We love this neighbourhood too, and actually, our landlord is this hilarious Portuguese grandmother who loves the baby and sometimes slips into Portuguese mid-conversation 🙂

    That wooden desk is a wonderful find. They don’t make desks like they used to; I’ve been looking for a nice but not too expensive writing desk for ages. I’m envious!

    • Yes, these days furniture can tend to be a little less well-built, which is a real shame. I think the previous owner of the desk might have given it away because of the missing drawer, but it’s so solid and sturdy, as well as being quite good-looking, we couldn’t pass it up!

    If you have a truck, or a friend with a truck, you can get some good deals at estate sales and auctions. This is because most people who show up to these things don’t have a truck or a friend with a truck.

    • That’s a great tip! Actually, we hear a lot of good fountain pen finds at estate sales, too 🙂 We don’t have a truck, but we move around so much that Jon is always saying we need to get one! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • That’s a great idea! We’ve had lots of interest from customers in vintage pens, but we don’t have too much knowledge or expertise on them, so we have no idea where to begin… But it’s definitely something on our minds 🙂
