    Default Pen shops in Phoenix/Scottsdale area

    Can anyone direct me to a brick and mortar pen shop or pen source in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area?

    Thanks in advance.

    There's Penchetta: http://penchetta.com/

    Karas Kustoms: http://karaskustoms.com/

    I know Pen Chalet is there, too, but I don't think they have an open show room. I also feel like I'm missing another online person that might have a B&M shop, but its not coming to me at the moment.

    I did the same search. Penchetta has been out of business. Karas is custom one brand only. Pendamonium is too far. But the Pen Chalet may be the answer, and will look into them.

    Thank you.

    Ok, yeah, I wasnt sure about Penchetta. They used to be Scottsdale Pen and Knife and that closed, but was reopened as Penchetta.

    Yeah, Pendamonium is would be a decently long drive, for sure.

    Man, I just can't think of the other place... Had a picture of one of their kids holding a giant pen on the website. Great prices on ink bottles/samples... If I think of it I will update.

    Also you might want to give Bryant Chatterley a call if you see anything on his website you might lust after. He's in the North Phoenix area, I think.

    I'm pretty sure Bryant is in Tucson (his number is a 520 area code, where most of Phoenix is a 602).

    Aaron Svabik of Pentiques is in the Valley, too, but I don't think he does sales out of his house directly.

    Lol, You are right, AzJon! My bad. I just know that I like to "window shop" his website. It's kind of like the old Sears Christmas Catalog for me.

    Same. I lust over way too many of his pens.

    Syd Saperstein (of Scottsdale) was surprised at my conclusion that Penchetta was out of business, so I phoned during their advertised business hours and an answering machine picked up. What's beguiling is that their website reads "no inventory" for every pen item I click on. Well, I passed the name and others along to my friend in Scottsdale, and it's up to him to pursue it.

    Thanks all for your leads.

    Huh. I had no idea Syd was in Scottsdale. I've used his site for references numerous times. I'm amazed how many pen people are in Arizona and we don't have a good pen show. A mid-winter show in Phoenix would be pretty sweet as the weather is usually very pleasant.

    Maybe they should move the LA pen show to Phoenix.
