    Default The Dallas Pen Show is right around the corner

    Hot from the press! The vendors for the Dallas Pen Show is now listed on the website. As usual, the list may change a bit to reflect last minute cancelations, which will quickly be filled by some vendors who are in the waiting list queue.



    This is one side of one of the pen cases I'm going to populate the Redeem Pens table with. Along with some unique postcards with my sketches (some are enroute from the printer as we speak).

    Well, I hope you can attend the show. If you did, stop by my table and say 'Hi!'.

    *** Sorry for the title of the thread, I should have just said DPS 2023

    So another Dallas Pen Show is in the books. Lots of things to unpack (not just the pens).

    As with every show that I attended, it's the connection with a few people that I made even in a brief period of time, that stays longer in memory and impressions. The pens are of course cool but hanging out with pen friends (old and new) is cooler.

    My workshop on Sketching with Fountain Pens is again, packed with attendees. I feel bad because some had to sit on the floor. I'd ask for a larger room for next year, wish me luck.

    Yes my friend decided the only thing he and his wife would get, is a bottle of ink. So to him it was not worth the trip, as he has tons of pens already. They went to Canton Trade Days instead. It seems it has changed a lot since he last was there, and he told me he found nothing, and the crowds there were incredible.
