oPEN House at Peyton Street Pens, April 23 2016

By Teri Morris • What's New • 11 Mar 2016

As many of our customers know, we don’t have a retail store. However, we are not totally unsociable, and a few times a year we throw open the doors to our workshop and welcome customers for an afternoon of pen-focused fun.

When: Saturday April 23, 2016 starting around 1pm and going until around 6pm or so.

Where: Peyton Street Pens, 239 Peyton Street, Santa Cruz CA (this is a residential neighborhood near the University, on the west side of town.)

Directions can be found here.

Official Facebook invitation can be found here.

We’ll have food and lots of pens to try out. It’s a very casual get-together which draws friends from as far away as Sacramento. We’re putting together a big batch of vintage pens with flexible nibs, as well as new Ranga ebonite pens with interesting nibs. If you have pens to sell or trade, this is the place to be. There are usually a few people who can advise you about repairs or help you find a part needed to complete your repair.

San Francisco’s pen posse is famous for both its sophistication when it comes to pens, and its welcoming atmosphere for newcomers and newbies.

We hope to see you on the 23rd!
