Happy Friday!  It is already a year since covering Fountain Pen Day 2015!

Fountain Pen Day 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.”

There is a countdown watch about to show less than one day over at the official website for Fountain Pen Day.

I’ve gone over to their eBay store to order Fountain Pen Day T-shirt L ~ w/ LA Pen Show extras.  Other offerings include Fountain Pen Day logo embroidered hat & swag.
