October Pen World magazine had a short piece on this pen. The pen is from China but it got here to Texas real quick. Has everything that is in the picture. The orange is very nice and I have ordered another one. The pen was under $12.00.
The pen has a hooded nib which I like. Will put some ink in it as soon as I finish up some of the other fountain pens on my desk. Add one to your collection.

I have always been a fan of Sterling Plastic office and school supplies. I used them all through the 60s and the beginning of the 70s. All our local five and dime stores had Sterling Plastic. In this picture we have the Sterling Plastic Educator Boxes. Left side are the Presidents of the US Boxes. If you are collecting these boxes remember there are five different ones. Each box ends with a different President. The earliest box and the most popular ends in JFK. The last box ends in President Carter. I am missing President Ford. On the right are the Events in US History, Map of the World and the US States.
Her we have the newest box in my collection. On the left is a Sterling Plastic Box from Israel and is in Hebrew. First time I have ever seen one of these. On the right is the hardest to find box. Our Solar System.
Our Solar System is complete. In this box Pluto is still a planet. Add all these great pencil boxes to your collection.

I grew up with Sears. We would get the catalog in the mail and look at the toys for Christmas. Sometimes we would go to our local Sears store which was just down the street from Big Boys. No more. As I did with Radio Shack I bought something that I could use. A Sears pocket calculator.
This one is complete and works fine. 8 digits,memory and a percent key!!
Add one to your collection.

Since we are close to Halloween lets have some glow in the dark fun. This is a pencil case glow in the dark holder for a iPad Pro Apple Stylus. Any BIC should work but the cap needs to be posted on the pen. I replaced my BIC with a BAUX BIC but with cap any BIC should work.
Next hit a light and the glow is on. They come in green and blue. Add one to your collection.

Since the ruler was in the last post I might as well get with it. I collect a lot of rulers and when I saw this 6" glass ruler I jumped. The case is shot but the ruler is in great shape. Glass and a 1/4" thick this would be a great addition to a desk top.

I don't buy bulk like I did at one time but these were to good to pass up. One dozen carded AF-49 Accountant Pens. Close to 50 years old and all you need is a current fine point BIC and a pair of pliers and you have a 50 year old working pen.
All of them are brand new and ready to be put to work. Email me at email@example.com and let me know if you want one. US only. May take a little while to mail them off. I am going to keep at least four of them. Add them all to your collection.

We in the Supply Room are providing all the stationary items for a new TV show called " For All Mankind" The story is about NASA. In this picture is the same model slide rule used by Wernher von Braum. One of the most important rocket developers from the 1930s to the 1970s. The one he used is in the Smithsonian and the model is a Albert Nestler NR#37.
Plenty of Papermate pens for those pocket protectors.
Plenty of pens, pencils, rulers and pocket protectors.

I have told friends that I wanted to go one time to a pen show. I was mistaken. I can not wait till next year. Here I am with Brad Dowdy. I gave him a Parker Jotter that was used on the TV show Mad Men. It was the highlight of the show to meet and talk with the Pen Addict.
Here I am with Jimmy Simpson who has the largest Pentel P200 collection I have ever seen. See for yourself at www.nimrodd.net. Next post will be my haul from the show.

These are all current Pentel Clicks and I think I have them all. Left are the 0.5mm then 0.7mm. The last orange one on the right starts the 0.9mm pencils.
On the right are the remaining 0.9mms. The eight pencils on the left that look like Pentel P200s are in fact fake ones.
The green pencil on the top is a new pencil called a Quick Click PD217. As you can see the eraser clicks up and down with the green button on the side. Add all these great pencils except the fake ones to your collection.

I need a place for my Casio M800 Calculator collection so I found this eight slot Zippo lighter case. I thought that the Zippos were bigger, they are not. Out with the sharp knife and I started cutting. Made a mess behind the calculators.
Here on the right are the two M810 Calculators. The on switch is on the left side. They also had the % key, the 800s did not. I like the one from Radio Shack.
Here are two of the M800s. as you can see the one on the left has the clear screen while all the rest have the yellow-filtered. The yellow was used to protect the led from harmful rays. The one on the right has a molled-golden finish.
They made five different finishes and I only have two. I will be looking for the others.
Add all these great calculators to your collection.
