In other news, we got a new pen display. As a relic from our not-so-long-ago-days-potentially-just-last-week when we weren't exactly rolling in the dough from our fountain pen sales, shop furniture can be quite expensive and so we've always been a bit scrappy in "redecorating," or really accumulating furniture as we grow and have more items to display.
I sort of love that each of our pieces in the shop have their own story - furniture that Jon and I got when we first got married, tables we found off the street and cleaned up, desktops stained with spilled ink - but at the same time I must admit the eclectic look can sometimes be a bit mismatched.
Hopefully as time passes we can be more selective with the bigger pieces we need to invest in, and slowly start shaping the look of the shop, but for now, Jon hunted this beauty down off of Kijiji and I'm as thrilled to have it here as the team is to have to rearrange the furniture in the shop.
