Last Friday was Fountain Pen Day and all of the fountain pen/ink/paper/etc retailers had lots of promotions and specials. Of all of them, I was most intrigued by the Mystery Box offered by Pen Boutique.
The Mystery Box would contain several items, including at least one fountain pen that was worth at least the box purchase price. One of the boxes would have a Mont Blanc pen - the top prize of the bunch.
Well, I could not resist taking a chance on receiving a box full of such bounty!
Okay, so I didn't get the Mont Blanc, but I got a terrific selection of inky goodness:
- two cute bookmarks
- an Oasis notebook
- a notepad
- a sample of Noodler's 54th Massachusetts ink (a nice, dark blue)
- a 30 ml bottle of Pelikan 4001 Violet ink (ooo - purple!)
- a Sheaffer 300 fountain pen
- and the piece de resistance - a Monteverde Regatta Black Mother of Pearl fountain pen!
The Sheaffer has a medium nib; the Regatta has a broad nib.
Just a quick look at retail prices for these goodies told me that I got way more than my money's worth, so hurray for Fountain Pen Day and thank you, Pen Boutique!
