    Let's hope this will become a great resource thread.

    A few places that I visit for purchases or simply to kill time (in no particular order):
    - La Couronne du Comte (I love shopping duty free and for over 150 euro, it's free shipping too!);
    - The Writing Desk and Cult Pens (two other UK retailers that offer competitive prices on selected models, especailly after deducting VAT. Reasonable worldwide shipping charges);
    - Nibs.com for Nakaya beauty (When will I be able to afford one? ) and other Japanese pens;
    - www.engeika.com for other Japanese pens;
    - www.gopens.com for vintage eye candies;
    - GregMinuskin.com for vintage flex and custom stubs at great prices;
    - Penboard, when I have Montblanc or Pelikan cravings;
    - eBay;
    the list goes on...

    I did not see http://thesebeautifulpens.blogspot.nl by Miss Elderberry. Does not post very often but regularly and like Dandelion she is very good with her camera. Has a soft spot for Japanese pens, broad nibs (yes, they go together) and nice papers.

    Is there any european or UK (yes, I'm aware of the contradiction) retailers that do ink sampling like the Goulets and such? That would be great.

    Good to hear! I love how you find interesting pens that nobody else seems to cover or even know of, and then give great information and reviews on them. Keep it up.

    +1 I love how the pens are compared or described not only on their technical merits (which is done thoroughly and well) but how you often talk about the history -- where they fit into the market, what they were competing with or replacing, what would replace them, what needs they were responding to, technical restraints, etc.

    Excellent job. I always look forward to your posts.

    Not a pen website per se, but I did make a shortened url of a google search of kickstarter for the various pen projects that appear there, since (currently, at least) the ks search feature is lacking, imo: http://j.mp/Pens_ks

    Also? It's now just a site for information (since Mike Scherer's stopped making them), but the site for my BOMAPen D6 model #3 - http://www.inklingpen.com
