The Pen Shop

The pen shop that goes by the name of Penbox is a little jem hidden away at the top of the Fountains Court shopping area in Epworth, North Lincolnshire.  This pen shop is proof that pen and ink are still loved by many in this age of keyboards and information technology.  In the shop customers stare misty eyed at pens displayed under glass and in show towers.  Displayed are fountain pens from Montegrappa, Visconti, Delta, Porsche Design, Caran d’Ache, Graf von Faber Castell and Pelikan in addition to the more widely know Parker, Waterman and Sheaffer.  The pen shop supplies pens for every day extended use, gifts, graduations and special occassions.  Visit Penbox the pen shop online or in Epworth, Lincolnshire.

Penbox Deliver Worldwide...

Customers often ask Penbox if we deliver worldwide.  The answer is ‘Yes’.  But we only use the Penbox company bicycle for local deliveries.  All other pen or pen refill orders are delivered by a courier or Royal Mail.  So having pumped up our bicycle tyres we are ready to deliver orders to the UK and worldwide.

Pen Flower Arrangement in the Epworth Shop

This is the unusual flower arrangement produced by a member of the Penbox pen shop staff in the Epworth shop when she was invited to take part in a charity flower arranging competition.  Having rummaged around in the used bit boxes in the stock room she produced a winning entry and helped raise £178 for a local charity.  Well done Debbie!

S. Mordan Cheapside London

S. Mordan, London.

Spotted this old image of London and on seeing the Royal Crest and S. Mordan on the building on the right of the image I thought that it must be Cheapside, London, and the S. Mordan and Co. of silver and gold pencil/pen case fame.  Photo brobably dates from the mid 19th century.

Enamelled Metal Swan Ink Shop Sign.

We were visiting the North Yorkshire Motor Museum over the weekend and noted this sign on the wall of the garage.  Took this image with Annette’s phone/camera.  The enamelled metal Swan ink sign was amongst other interesting enamelled motoring related signs.
