It’s been about a week since I visited Leigh and took home her lovely, well-kept, vintage Sailor21 and Platinum fountain pens. As I mentioned in my last post, she also gave me a Platinum plastic pen box and a Platinum Preppy fountain pen, as well as carts for the Sailor and an adaptor for the Platinum. Leigh, thanks so much! Yay for Leigh!
She also suggested that I look for the Cheery Mohohon pen cases that she bought at Fully Booked-Bonifacio High Street. Hers was brown. “Get one,” she urged. Alex and Ik happened to visit there a couple days later and Ik got me two, one gray and the other brown, and a gray one for herself.
It really is much better than the usual soft pouches I use, where the pens and stuff all roll about inside, scratching each other up. Inside the Cheery case, the pens are kept separate and safe.
On the left are the Platinum and Sailor in the Platinum box; and on the right, the Cheery with a Schneider, Inoxcrom kukuxumusu, Parker Jotter FP, Platinum Preppy, Parker Jotter BP, and an Inoxcrom Agatha Ruiz de la Prada.
Just simple things, but they make life sweet.
