Chicago Show and the next one… Pacific Northwest! @ Portland

Hey All!

The Chicago show was great for us!  Sold a lot of pens and got to visit with friends and meet new people.

Here’s the view from my part of the room…


My next show, and it’s a new one, is the Pacific Northwest Pen Show, in Portland, Oregon.  I’ll have an inside table.


I hope to see you there!

Cossatot River Green – Shimmer Ink by Vanness for the 2023 AR Pen Show

Hi Everybody!

Vanness made some custom ink for the Arkansas pen show this year, and there are only a few bottles left.  If you want to get one you should act soon.  Get in touch with Tim Joiner ([email protected]) from the pen club to purchase.

There’s also one pen left (this one above)

Arkansas Pen Show exlusive – Orville Cossatot!

The Orville #Cossatot limited run of 10 pens are nearly ready for the 2023 #arkansaspenshow

The blanks were made by Darrell Davis @d_squared_arts and modeled after the fresh water mussels found all over Arkansas. Our own Arkansas Abalone. 🙂

There will be 10 pens, 4 with full trim: river rocks, cast clip, and NN cap bands (shown here), and 6 with only river rock cap finials and standard steel clips. 5 medium size, 5 small size, all with Jowo #6 steel nibs.

There will also be a limited edition brown shimmer ink made to pair with these pens by @justvanness included with each pen, and available at the show. Small batch of ink, about 60 or 70 bottles?

Only available at the Arkansas Pen Show March 17, 18, 19! @arkansaspenshow
