More BIC Pens

Posted by Picasa
Here we have more new and old BIC pens. I went to Wallmart today because over at the Pen Addict he had said he found the new Sharpie pen there. Well I found the Sharpie pen but since I already had two of them I did more looking and found this new pack of BIC pens in different colors. About time BIC. These are all nice pens, great colors and I will be looking for more of these. You can never have to many BICs. The BIC clics are old stock. Late 80s or early 90s I would think. They worked after I put in the new refills. Add all of these to your collection.

More Zebras

Posted by Picasa
Here are some of my new Zebras that I have not had time to open yet. Most you have seen before but the last two on the right I just picked up at Staples. The 301 ball point pen in the red body are nice. They also come in blue. The ones that are going to be opened soon are the 301 roller ball pens. They use the same refill as the fountain pen and there are two of them in the package. Add then all to your collection and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Panasonic RQ-830S 8-Track Player

Posted by Picasa
Who did not have one of these? This Panasonic from the early 70s has to be my favorite 8 track tape player. I have eight working ones but this one is the most fun. I have had the player for some time but have been missing the box, instructions, warranty, and power cord. Then I find this seller on EBay who sells copies of all the paperwork, includes a power cord and makes a box that looks just like the original. Less then $12.00 bucks and I now have the complete set. Can't have old pens and pencils without one of these, add it to your collection.

Parker Jotter Number #21

Posted by Picasa
I have always liked the Parker Jotter but it has only been in the past 10 years or so that we get this explosion of color. The new Jotter on the right on the card has a clear/red barrel. Made in England where I would guess all these jotters are made now. The last two in the case are the purple 50th anniversary jotter and next to it is the clear/purple barrel. I saw a clear/blue jotter on eBay so I will continue to add colors as I find them. Add all 21 to your collection.

Pentel PD 345 and PD 505

Posted by Picasa
One of the key pencils that got me started in collecting on a large scale was the Pentel PD 345. I was in Germany in the 70s when I first saw the Pentel PD 345 downtown at my local stationary store. At one time I had all the original colors but over time I have lost a few of them. Now we jump to 2011 and what do I see over at Germs Pencil 11 blog but a dozen stainless steel PD 505s with the green eraser and pin for lead breaks. Take one of Pentels best pencils and make it better and you have a PD 505. One of the best finds ever. Thanks Germ. Add them all to your collection.
