      What a great trip for the two of you! Thanks so much for your purchase, and glad to hear you had a good time at the show. Can’t wait for next year 🙂

    It was wonderful to see you and the baby (not to mention all the goodies!) and to say hi in person. I think your tables had the longest queue in the whole show! It was a great day even if we didn’t win any of the raffle prizes (darn!). See you next year!

      Yes, it was so lovely to see you! Once a year, we have to remind each other of what we look like. Hope you are enjoying your show pen as consolation for not winning any of the raffles 😉

    I couldn’t make it this year but I’ll do my darndest to make it next year! Glad to hear the show went well, and that you survived with your sanity pretty much intact! I ordered some stuff online from you guys last weekend to make up for not being able to buy in person… or to console myself for not being able to be there… or something. Any excuse for more pens!!
    PS I ordered my first Platinum pen (a Cool in clear) and now I know why everyone loves them. OMG what a great writer!

      Next year! It’s a busy and fun day, you won’t regret coming, I’m sure. We did survive, and we’re already thinking about next year 🙂

      Thank you so much for your order! The Platinum Cool is by far one of my favourite soft nibs, a terrific everyday writer with a bit of character.

    Hi LIz: congratulations on your new baby! I remember visiting when you’d just opened and laughed when I discovered Caleb sleeping under your sweater.

    I couldn’t find the giveaway info on Instagram. I wish it had been more accessible, like on your site – I don’t use a cell phone, but I do support pen stores. Maybe next year.

    Your blog is always illuminating. Congratulation you on visiting 30 (?)libraries. Always a buzz to meet a book lover. Will we become extinct?

      Thank you so much! Caleb was a great sleeper when he was a baby, and I’m hoping for the same with this one – fingers and everything else crossed.

      I’m so sorry about the difficulty finding our giveaway on Instagram, we’ll have to be certain to host one on the blog soon. Christmas is coming!

      And how wonderful to meet another book lover. I have faith that we will survive whatever this technological age has to come – although this is the same optimism that has led us to open a pen store. We shall have to see how time marches on!

      Thank you so much! I hope you do get a chance one day to come – the trip from Windsor isn’t a short one, but I think it would be worth it 🙂

  4. Thank you for the great shout out Liz. As always it’s great to have you, Jon and the crew there for the show. So my question is….. where did you get that very fine collapsible red wagon?

    • wonderpens

      Thanks so much for reading! We love everything you and David are doing with the show and for the community. We’re lucky to have you!

      The red wagon is FREE! It’s with orders from Uline over a certain amount. It proved to be very helpful in setting up for the show! 🙂
