Thanks to a thread on the Fountain Pen Network, I was alerted to the existence of a wonderful gentleman, Geoff Morris, and his awesome pen cabinets.
As part of my attempt to organize my home office space, (but that is another post for another time), I decided that my fountain pens needed to be moved off the desk and into their own home.
So I purchased a large 7-drawer case that will hold 70 pens. Up until this time, my pens had languished about in their zippered cases (note the use of the plural there) and I would move them about my desk to get them out of my way. I did not want to just move the pen cases... if I did that... OMG!! I might forget about some of them and not ink them... perish the thought!!!
(Editor's note: These cases come in 3 sizes: 7, 5 or 2 drawer. The 7 and 5 drawer are available as large or standard. The large to accomodate larger pens, please read all the specs on Geoff's website.)
So here it is, the most awesome pen cabinet in the world, and let me tell you a secret. From the time I started looking at this cabinet, placed the order and received it, it was less than two weeks and that included a holiday weekend and a weekend where my initial inquiry went astray. Geoff shipped my case on the Tuesday after Memorial Day and it arrived in Florida from England on Thursday. Can you say TWO DAYS?!?!?!
Hey, Carl!! How many of my pens can you identify?
P.S. I only have 8 empty slots in the cabinet and 16 pens - I'm thinking I should have bought a two drawer cabinet also. *SIGH*
