It's that time of year again! From Thursday, August 2 through Sunday, August 5, I'll be attending the Washington, D.C. Fountain Pen Supershow at the Marriott Fairview Park. This year, I'll be at the Vanness Pens table, so stop by and say hello if you get the chance. Vanness will be bringing their wall of ink, pens, paper & more!
Note that Thursday and Friday at the show are "Trader Days," meaning that you will have to purchase a weekend pass to attend ($45). The weekend pass also gets you into the show an hour earlier on Saturday and Sunday. I highly recommend attending on Friday and early in the mornings on the weekend - it's much less crowded, and you'll have first crack at rare pens and inks. Stuff can sell out fast! The show opens to the public on Saturday morning, and single-day admission is $9.
Disclaimer: Vanness Pens is a sponsor of this blog, and I will be working for them at the show. For more about Vanness, see my post talking about my visit to their store in Little Rock, Arkansas earlier this year.
