  • Absolutely worth the hour drive. Fantastic customer service. Great selection of fountain pens and ink. I came in with a budget in mind and wasn't pushed toward anything out of my price range. We will be back!!
  • Be. Still. My. Heart!!! I can go into this jewel of a shop every day and still not satisfy my love of beautiful pens, imported papers, and objects of desire. Oh, oh, oh! And such nice staff. They seem to understand my need to just be there!
  • Fabulous and well informed staff. Great variety of products.
  • My husband and I visited this lovely shop Thanksgiving weekend. My husband enjoys fine fountain pens and purchased a Pilot Vanishing Point. There are beautiful writing instruments, notebooks, pads, including gorgeous hand made journals. We enjoyed talking to Jonathan, the owner, who is charming and not at all sales-y. When we got home we had some difficulty with the converter. Jonathan was very responsive and quickly sent us another one at no charge. It turned out the mistake was on our side, and he graciously declined our offer to pay for the additional converter + shipping. Great service in a beautiful setting!
  • Jonathon was amazing and very helpful. He helped us find the perfect gift. Thanks for everything. We will certainly be back!
