    Default UberPens

    Some of you may know I recently got a few vintage pens after claiming that I have no interest in vintage pens. Part of that was because I stumbled upon an interesting vintage pen at a good price on UberPens. At the time, I knew nothing about the company, so I took a gamble and ordered the pen.

    Now I know a lot more, and own more vintage pens from UberPens. What gave me the security with this company is that they restore their pens before selling them. This does add to the cost. But, it also means that the pen will work. For someone like me who is uncomfortable doing more than really basic repair, that's a great thing. As a bonus, it has even given me the confidence to look at some other vintage pens which do require some work.

    The company has been prompt in delivery, the pens are well packaged and in good condition, and the website is easy to navigate. It's like they're trying to be the Goulet Pens of the vintage world. I was really impressed when I ordered a pen while being unaware that they were running a special if I typed in a discount code. They contacted me to tell me that they were refunding that money even though I didn't put in the discount code. I was impressed by that, especially since I never would have known.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I am having an issue with one pen I ordered (it's late) but I have every confidence that the company will resolve it. Hopefully this will be by locating the pen. If not, then by refunding the cost of the pen.

    Anyway, for anyone wishing to dip their toes into the vintage world, I fully recommend UberPens.

    Default Re: UberPens

    For those interested: the pen has arrived, though I still need to get to the Post Office when it's open. Truthfully, my location in a rural part of North Dakota means that I'm off the beaten path, and things take longer to get to me. I've struggled with this a bit over the years, but that is an issue to take up with the US Postal Service, not any particular company.
