Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 61

The newest additions to my little Cross 'Bailey Light' family of writing instruments...

Cross 'Bailey Light' fountain pen in coral and ballpoint in teal

On stopping by my local Staples store last week to pick up the coral fountain pen above (which I'd ordered online), I noticed a two-sided cardboard floor display for Cross writing instruments. I was delighted to see that the display included all the Cross 'Bailey Light' fountain pen and ballpoint colours (grey, teal, black, white and blue--no rollerballs, though), so I took advantage of the opportunity to purchase a teal ballpoint to go with the teal fountain pen I bought this Spring. 

Both the coral fountain pen and the teal ballpoint write smoothly, have no startup or flow issues, and are a delight to use (I think I'm developing an addiction to these pens ;) For my mini-review of the grey Cross 'Bailey Light' fountain pen I also bought this Spring, please check out this post on our pen club blog (photos of the white fountain pen version I bought in June can be found here). 

 Stay safe, everyone!
