    An eye for insignificant details is a good sign you will do just fine in medical school...
    As a sharp wit and powerful sarcasm is a sign that you already have.

    Just got myself a Mabbie Todd Blackbird eyedropper. So far it has been a little bit fiddly, but it is looking to be a great pen.
    Hello, my name is Nathan. Pleased to make your aquaintance.

    Loving trying out my new/old pens, a Wahl Eversharp, an Esterbrook 9128, an Eversharp Skyline, and the current winner, a Sheaffer New Balance...some of them are older than I am and still flexible, no wonder I like them!

    I've never seen that Pelikan before. That's very nice.

    Cathy, your drawings are great. Enjoy the pens. And to everyone else, nice hauls. I'm doubly feeling the love for the Bexley Corona that flew in the door two days ago.

    My latest was the 2011 Lamy Safari Aquamarine in extra fine. Had been hunting for one for awhile as it is my son's birth year! Hopefully when he grows up he'll be into pens and I can pass it down to him.

    *hugs and pats back gently* You ought to visit some of our flea markets here some day soon, I bet that you could find some good stuff.
    And here I thought that today's "harvest" at the flea market was pretty meagre! o.0

    Seriously? To my eye, the LeBoeuf is rather dull. Certainly I wouldn't call it "flashy". If you want flashy, look at a Platinum Koi. Of course, the main thing about the Estie Green Cracked Ice is the rarity. Try to find one of those at your local flea market.

    That may be just a matter of time, money and patience.
    I did get my MB 234½ at a flea market, you know.

    Maybe so, but from what I have seen your flea markets are very high caliber compared to most others! But you know, they are where you find them.

    Oh trust me, you have to look through a lot of useless things to find the good stuff here as well, but once in a while you hit that golden streak of luck where you find a seller with a few pens for sale. And the more sellers that get to know you as a pen and pen paraphernalia collector, the more the sellers will get back to you with their findings.
    It's very often a matter of flea market networking and getting to know the regular sellers. *wink*

    I don't think the mohawk thing is an option for me. I can thank male pattern baldness for that.

    In any case I just don't find much of anything interesting in local flea markets. Wish I could!

    What a gorgeous Pilot pen! *drools*

    Here's today's haul from the flea market:

    DSC_2314.JPG

    DSC_2318.JPG

    Nice set for my drawing stuff...now I just need to find a way to clean out the old gunk inside the pen.
    Any any advice, guys? Pretty please?

    DSC_2320.JPG

    DSC_2321.JPG

    Found some dip pen nibs. The really funny thing is that the seller happens to be one of my neighbours here, so now I know where to get hold of him if I want to buy more nibs.
    He had three large moving-size cardboard crates full of original boxes with nibs and pencil refills, so I'll get in touch with him now and again and do a bit of shopping, I think.

    A couple of felt pens, I love the size.

    Unknown fp. Unfortunately I don't read arabic, I wish I knew what the text on the nib says.


    DSC_2338.JPG

    Parker thing w. cracked barrel.
    A tiny drop of glue and it should do alright as a work pen.
