I have been waiting for this notebook all year. The Notebook Modular by allocacoc.
This notebook was well presented and arrived in good shape.
I ordered the synthetic suede leather.
Here it is. All the sheets are standard 8"x11" and come in calendars, weekly calendars blank paper and lined paper. All of these can be copied. The key to this is all the flaps to include the one on the right that closes the notebook have magnets. You can put about 50 sheets on each side and they do stay in place. There is a pen slot on the right and the notebook does come with a pen.
There are two places to keep business cards. The website is www.allocacoc.com. Best notebook to come along in some time. Add one to your collection.

Here is one I have been hunting for some time. The Casio micro-mimi Calculator. Only 2 1/2"s tall and working. I say that because some of the calculators in my collection do not work. Just like some of my older pens do not work. Made in Japan and sold between 1977 and 1978. There were about six different models made with this one being the M810. The others had the on and off switch on the face of the calculator. Will try and get one of those.
This one works and in good shape. Will fit in your pocket or purse. Add one to your collection.

Here is a nice set of vintage Pentel drafting pencils. This is a well used case but I am sure the original owner got some good use out of it.
The case had three 0.5 pencils and one 0.3. The original case only had three pencils plus lead and instructions.
This pencil seems to be the oldest of the set. Would love to see some details on the original set so more research is needed. Add a set like this to your collection.

Lets start with the Yoda Sheaffer roller ball. Next is the Caran 'd Ache neon yellow 849 pen and pencil set. Followed by the 60s or early 70s Papermate Zodiac ball point. This is an extra. Next is a Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth 5340 lead holder. Love the color. Last is a a almost new Parker 88 ball point pen.
Sheaffer has three new pens out for Star Wars which I will post later.
All of these are great looking pens. Add them all to your collection.

Sometime in 2016 Parker came out with at least 19 jotters with new colors and a new arrow on the clip. I only picked up three so far but I will get around to buying them all. Now they come out with four new Gothic Jotters with the new clip, new colors and and four new designs on the barrel. These new pens take inspiration from the ornate embellishments of the oldest cathedrals in the UK.
They look heavy but are very light.
They moved up to the top of the daily rotation. Add them all to your collection.

I think I have them all now. There are 18 glow in the dark pens and 1 pencil. It took longer then I had hoped because there were a few models that are just hard to fine.
Right here in the middle with the 4 Ever Pen with the hearts and the BEEP with the robots. These guys are hard to find for the serious collector.
They do have a nice glow. Add all these great pens to your collection.
It has been a slow school supply season so far. I did pick up the new Zebra 7 pack fountain pens. Best item of the year. I also put the old refillable Zebra fountain next to the new ones. Did not care for that one. Then we have some new BIC Velocity pencils with a side clicker. Last are some nice BIC pens in great colors.
Nice bright ink is a nice size pen. Already using them.
Colors are nice. I picked up the fountain pens on line at www.zebrapen.com. Add all these great pens and pencils to your collection.
