March got off to a great start with the 2019 BWI Pen Show. This show is always a favorite, and this year’s may have been the best yet! We had fun and we even got to see a little snow fall, but thankfully it didn’t disrupt the show or our travel (this is the best kind of snow, right?!)
The Baltimore show is always full of friendly people, vendors and customers alike. It’s truly a pleasure to take part in this show. We met so many wonderful people - if you came to see us at the show, we enjoyed it and we are grateful! If you made a purchase from us, we do hope you’re enjoying it. We know you have many choices when it comes to fountain pen retailers, and we appreciate your business!
One reason the Baltimore pen show has such a great atmosphere is that it is run by a stellar team of kind and thoughtful folks. Kudos to Bert, Adam, Corinne, Maggie, and I’m sure many more for finding a great venue, putting together an interesting array of classes, fun giveaways, and so many more touches that made it a fun and memorable weekend.
One great bonus for Points was that a giveaway we were running on Instagram wrapped up while we were at the show, and it just so happened that the giveaway winner was present at the show to claim his prize in person. This was the first time we’ve gotten to hand over an online giveaway in person, and it made the experience much more fun! We hope Eric is still loving his Franklin-Christoph 31, in Points’ exclusive Ruby/Navy combo!
We’re already looking forward to next year’s Baltimore show. Is the Baltimore show one that you like to attend? What do you think about it? What’s your favorite pen show?
