Three Cheers for Scriptus 2014 – Toronto’s Fountain Pen & Writing Show!!!

What a terrific start to 2014!  A few days ago I received an email from Scriptus – the newly launched blog that provides details of Scriptus 2014 – Toronto’s Fountain Pen & Writing Show, scheduled for November 2, 2014 at the Appel Salon, 2nd flr., Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St., Toronto.  This is the first of such shows in Toronto since 2010 and the organizer/driving force behind it is Philip Akin.  The blog provides interested readers with the ability to subscribe for updates, including inter alia sponsorship and vendor-exhibitor information.

The hobby of using & collecting of fountain pens and related items is strong and widespread across Canada as evidenced by the number of clubs – Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa, GTA, and, of course, our club in London.  We Canadians need a pen show of our own so if there is ANYTHING that you can do to make this event a success, whether as a sponsor, vendor-exhibitor, volunteer,  or attendee please contact Philip at admin@scriptustoronto.com.

  1. I have a Watermans ideal pen boxed with a repair letter dated 1937 what is it worth.

    • Hi David
      The value of these boxes vary – if you look on ebay, you will see that they generally sell from $10 – 25 and perhaps a bit more, depending on condition and rarity.
      Cheers!

  2. So wonderful!! I plan to attend and can’t wait until November!! :)

  3. Thanks for the shout out. I had sent an email out today letting people know that we have 36% of the tables booked and that if you would like to be a vendor or sponsor/vendor to check out the website. I look forward to meeting you all.

    Philip

    PS: We are also on Facebook under Scriptus Toronto

    • Hi Philip,

      You are most welcome – we can’t wait for the show as we are sure it will be a big success! In the meantime, I will see what I can do to get one or two tables signed up.

      Cheers!
      Mike
