Greetings and salutations, one and all! I inserted "Southern" in the title because whenever I tell someone I live in Illinois they automatically think Chicago for some reason. I actually live in the St. Louis area. We have an active group here called the St. Louis Area Pen Users and if you are interested PM me for details.


I am already a member of two other fountain pen boards, but hey, why not join another? I caught the fountain pen bug several years ago and to date I've amassed a modest collection of 60+ pens. I generally seek out vintage American pens (love Parker 51s!), but I will buy just about anything that catches my eye and i have several new pens as well. I need to keep this hobby self-sustaining, and I will likely be selling some pens in order to focus my collection and finance new purchases.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

​You will find the folks here at the FP Board really knowledgable and very friendly, and frankly, a much more learned audience willing to help you out. This "IS" the place to grow and to know about fountain pens!


If there is something I can do for you, please let me know!
