A belated Happy New Year to all our loyal blog followers. Sorry it has taken so long for a new 2014 update. One may expect that the craziness from the Holidays immediately drops off and becomes quiet after December 25th, but January is still busy with returns, exchanges and folks looking to spend gift cards. We've just started to get some new information from our big fine writing brands on new products that are on the horizon. So, we'll share the first big update with you, which comes from one of our most esteemed Italian manufacturers.Visconti
is releasing a new color to add to their popular Rembrandt line of fine writing pens. The "Merry Go Round
" style is a playful interpretation that features a customized band depicting children holding hands in friendship. Made with variegated vegetable resin, the colors embody the spirit of spring with vibrant blues, yellows, and orange. This pen is available in fountain pen ($165), rollerball ($160), and ballpoint ($155). The fountain pen features a stainless steel nib in fine, medium, or broad.
We will be adding these to the website sometime in the next few weeks for pre-order. They estimate the Merry Go Round to arrive within the next 2 months and we should have more details as (hopefully) Winter melts away into Spring.
