Seattle Pen Club meeting in Bellingham!

The Seattle Pen Club will be having their April meeting in Bellingham, Washington on Saturday April 21 in the Bellingham Public Market's Meeting Room from 10am to 2pm---Market address: 1530 Cornwall Ave, Bellingham, Washington, USA (map on this page)

The SPC meets in Bellingham twice a year to make it easier for pen folks in northern WA and Vancouver, BC to attend. It's free, the SPC folks are super-friendly, and they always bring some interesting pens to show :) No topic or theme for this meeting--just a casual get-together with pen talk around a big table, so bring some new/favourite pen-related stuff to show everyone.
All Vancouver Pen Club members are welcome to attend (attendance isn't compulsory, of course) and no RSVP's are required!

Don't forget our own Vancouver Pen Club meeting this Thursday April 19 at the Oakridge library. All details are here in this post. Hope you can make it!

Barry's antique sale find

It wasn't photographed at the March meeting, so I asked him to send me a quick pic...

It's one of the new acquisitions Barry K brought to that meeting----a Parker '51' fountain pen and mechanical pencil set in burgundy, ca. 1949, purchased at a local antique sale...

And how much did Barry pay for this lovely set?
A mere $ 30.
(well done, Barry!)
