Happy Friday! Today, November 06, is Fountain Pen Day. It takes place “on the first Friday in November each year, Fountain Pen Day is celebrated by enthusiasts worldwide as a time to embrace, promote, and share the use of fountain pens.”
It was a delight to receive in my inbox today email blog notification from The Pen Haul about it. I have been a email subscriber to his blog posts since April this year.
“…I recommend heading over to the official website for Fountain Pen Day as it has a long list of giveaways, promotions, and sales. One that stood out for me is the huge giveaway by Pen Chalet, where you could win a Visconti or Pelikan…”
On Twitter today there are some really beautiful items tweeted as part of celebrating #fountainpenday. This image on the right shows “Happy Fountain Pen Day 2015“. The image below on the left is of beautiful vintage dip pens and paraphernalia.
If you are even remotely interested in fountain pens you must visit the Fountain Pen Day Sponsors page of the participating vendors. I’m having fun looking at the vendors – I counted over 105! It will take a while to go through all of them exploring and am confident I will find that perfect fountain pen to be the fifth one to add to my fountain pen collection.
