New Items

Here we have some new items in the Supply Room. Top left is a plastic pen stand that has the map of the US. I would think from the 50s or 60s. To the right is a new pencil in the Supply Room. A Kickstater item called a Stalwart Pencil. I think this is 3.5mm lead and the pencil came with four leads and a ballpoint pen. Made from Maple Burlword so each pencil will look different. It is a big lead but is is fun to use. Below left is the Ambition Field Notes that I saw over at Unposted. Last are two items I got from JetPens. The white 60th Anniversary Parker Jotter and the 80th Anniversary Rhodia notebook and pencil. All good stuff.
Here are two of the plastic pen holders I got from Office Depot as they close their doors. Check your local store and get yours.

Wearever Ball Pens

Two items to show in this picture. First is the great counter top pen display from Wearever up on the wall. Mad Men folks found this item and I put new refills in all the pens.This cardboard display was in great shape. Then other item is the Lamy and Tradio pens. They are in a new display case I got from the closing of our local Office Depot store here in Killeen. The stores were bought by Office Max and are being closed out. You should go by your local Office Depot and see what they are selling. I bought the Schneider Pen floor display to get these plastic 30 slot pen displays. There are four of these in a Schneider Pen floor display. I paid $25.00 for the stand and all I wanted was the four pen displays. Go by and get yours. Add all this great stuff to your collection.

New BIC 4 and 2 Way Pens

We are running out of space. Added four new pens to this case and it is now full. On the top row I added the short green 4 way BIC. Pastel colors just like the other green 4 ways. The first 21 pens on the top row are all 4 way BICs. Last three on the top row and the first nine BICs and the second row are 2 way BICs. Second row number 7-9 are the new BIC 2 ways in blue, pink and yellow. Don't see BIC 2 ways here in the US but they do seem to be popular overseas. There are so many BICs out there that another case may be in order. Add them all to your collection.

Roll Top Plastic Pencil Boxes

Here are some of my favorite plastic pencil boxes, the Roll Tops. All three are made in the USA. The first two are made by the Hasbro Company.  I have not been able so far to find model numbers for Hasbro Pencil Boxes but the middle one seeem to have been made to look like the one on the right. The pencil box on the right is the Sterling Plastic model 526 which included pencils an eraser and a Sterling Plastic Model 525 6" plastic ruler.  The Hasbro boxes also come with ruler and pencils. Prices are high on these type boxes. The Hasbro boxes go anywhere from $25.00 on up and the Sterling Plastic Pencil Box starts at $65.00 for used ones and still on the card boxes go for about $125.00 on up. Mine was used but in great shape.

These boxes had all you needed for elementary school anywhere. Pencils, colored pencils, rulers and a sharpener. Add them all to your collection.

Pentel Clic Erasers

Here we have my Pentel Clic Eraser collection. Pentel just came out with their new ZE23s and it is a great addition to the line up. Top left are three of my orginal ZE21s. I started collecting these erasers in the mid 70s. Number four is the ZE21 with the red eraser and hot colors, next is a Pentel Rock 'N Write ZE21MB. Next two are the translucent ZE21Ts with the new S pocket clip. Last in the row is the ZE22. Right top is a solid color ZE15 Ain Clic followed by a translucent Ain Clic ZE15. Below that is a solid blue Pentel Tri Eraser ZE-15 followed by a green translucent Tri Eraser ZE-15. Below that is a Pentel ZE32 Hyperaser and then a yellow squared ZE80. Now we come to the new ZE23 erasers. These have a clear plastic body and a colored eraser. They come in purple, pink, green and blue.

These are a great addition to any collection and work just fine. I am glad to see Pentel come out with a new eraser in great colors. Add all these great erasers to your collection.

Sterling Plastic Pencil Sharpener

Well I broke down and bought the Sterling Plastic Apollo Space Capsule #506. Back in January of 2013 I posted this rocket that rides on the back of a Lionel train car with a capsule that only had SP stamped on the back. At the time the original #506 was out of my price range. I found one the other day with a good price so I jumped. The capsule is the most expensive of the small Sterling Plastic pencil sharpeners. Add one to your collection.
