Last weekend was Taste of Little Italy, a street festival that happens once a year along College Street. They close College off to cars, and the whole street is filled up with tents and booths and people. Our main shop at 52 Clinton is just off College, midway along the festival, which is an exciting place to be. There’s music, balloons, rides if you go far enough west, and of course, lots of great food.
Dear Pen Friends, We hope you are all faring well as the cool weather has settled - we hear there's even snow in Edmonton! Lots and lots is going on here as we prepare for the holiday season (and winter!), and we are pretty excited for some new things we're expecting in shop.
re: Porter, the journal of Porter Airlines stopped by the other day, and just like that, someone's handsome mug made it into the pages! We are thrilled. If you are flying on Porter this summer, take a peek at your friendly, neighbourhood stationery shop (that's us!). Tag us on Instagram or Twitter with #wonderpens if you're on Porter and you see us!
We are very excited to be part of Do Design this year, which is taking place along Dundas West between Bathurst & Grace. Restaurants, shops and galleries all have displays featuring local contemporary designers
We've made it! A whirlwind holiday season, including mopping the floor more times in the last three weeks than I think I've ever mopped my own home, desperate calls to Santa-like distributors for stock, gift-givers coming in to a buy a pen for "someone who really likes fountain pens, but already has about a thousand and I have no idea what they are I NEED HELP, PLEASE!"
