Pen Shop?

Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone know a shop that specialises in somewhat upmarket pens where you can spend time trying them out? It doesn't need to be a branch of Mont Blanc or something... no idea what's wanted yet, so I would like many brands available to try. I was wondering if John Lewis might have a selection. There's a shop called The Pen Box in Lincolnshire (I'm happy to travel a reasonable distance to have a day out) but it's not doing viewings due to Covid. Plenty of Jewellers may sell good pens - I just don't know if they can offer great advice and knowledge at the same time... hence looking for thoughts here.

 

Not looking for answers like - WH Smith, ta.

There's a shop in York that specialises in pens. I think it's called Signature. Also one called the Pen Box in North Lincs. 

I don't know of any in Sheffield.

Sorry, just noticed you've already tried the Pen Box 🙄

John Lewis in Sheffield still have quite a few high end pens.

I've always found Selfridge's to have the best range of pens. They have two stores in Manchester.

Thank you all. I was unaware of Signatures... I'm going to call them.

Isn't there a pen shop on Surrey Street?  I've often looked at the window display when passing that way.

Not sure if it's exclusively pens.

Hi Becky, you're thinking of FG Thomas the Pen specialist. I believe they closed down last year though.

Oh!  Thank you.  Shows how often I've been past that way recently...

Miss Selfridge has two stores in Sheffield. She might sell pens.
