Did some trading with some friends in England. Big BIC pen collectors. I sent them some 4 and 2 ways BIC that were missing from their collection. In return I got four Retro 51 pens. The top two in this picture glow in the dark. The bottom two are just good Harley Davidson Retro 51 pens.
Here is the glow. Add them all to your collection.

Here are the three Cross Star Wars Clic Rollers. I have been using the Cross Clic rollers for some time but with the movie coming out I had to get these three. Cross also has the Star Wars fountain pen and roller in the $400.00 plus range but not for me. These will do just fine. Add them to your collection and May The Force Be With You.

This is one after Christmas sale that I could not pass on. I have been looking at this pen for some time but close to $100.00 was a little to much. Levengers has two colors of their L-Tech 3.0 pens on sale. I picked up the Moss color. The pens come in ball point, fountain pen and roller. Fountain pen was about $100.00. All three were marked down to $39.00 and free shipping. I jumped.
The pen comes in this nice metal case with the a fabric and silicone rubber stylus for those who need them.
This is a big pen and will be used without posting the cap. Would make a good EDC pen. Add one to your collection.

Here we have a nice example of a ruler from Sterling Plastic. This is a 1968 #540 Protractor. I will be keeping this one in my note book that is with me all the time. Sterling Plastic was the leader in plastic school supplies in the 50s through the 80s. The company is now gone but that helps make these rulers and other stationary items so valuable.

Did not get them for Christmas but I did get them. Top are the regular Blackwing pencils from Palomino. Had them for some time and they are a fine writing pencil. Left side are the Blackwing 725. Great colors. In the middle is the Blackwing Pearl, 602 and three of the 211 pencils. The 211s are sold out everywhere I looked. On the right is the new 1138 pencils.
Of all these Blackwings I would have to pick the 1138 as the best looking pencil. The note in the box said that the 1138 solutes the Trip to the Moon and all things sci-fi. Sounds good to me. Add them all to your collection.
