Antique & Vintage Pen Tips...


My most favorite pair of shoes~
They don't make that style anymore!


My favorite tea~
It wasn't selling well... so they discontinued it!


Through the years the list of favorites slowly disappear...
I find new needfuls & treasures that keep me content!
Except.......
When I find vintage & antique pen tips...
I try to stockpile them!


Perhaps a little hoarding when it comes to tips...
There is something about the way they write~


The new pieces work just fine...
The used & new "old" ones~ are amazing!

Hope your day is amazing, too~

It seems that "old" is always better! Love your new tips...the display itself is a work of art. Wishing you many delightful hours whirling and swirling with pen and ink!

Yours fondly,

Oh my goodness . . . it's so true! All my favorites disappear and it's so discouraging when you can't find an equally satisfying replacement. Thank goodness for antique malls and thrift shops! They may not be able to replace my favorite blush and lipstick, but they can surely give a hug with an old time favorite dish or toy. Big smiles for your pen tips!

Blessings and smiles,

Love your post of how things just get canceled or discontinued. Your pen nibs are fabulous...but so are your precious drawings! Warm Hugs...

What a special collection. They are beautiful even if you never use them. I have the same problem with the things I love being discontinued.
