Watch for Flax's new "Second Chance" page - where you can find gently used writing instruments for sale at attractive prices. We've checked them out but you're welcome to come into the store and inspect/test them. Second-chance pens are non-returnable but they are attractively priced. Check them out! We started the fun with a Faber-Castell smoked wood Ondoro fountain pen at just $80.00 and have beauties including the Aurora Talentum Classic as well.
If you're wondering what we're up to, the answer is "working hard to provide collectors and consumers the best finds and pricing." We're teaming.with the companies we work with to bring in more limited-edition and special collection fountain pens but doing so in a way that makes those treasures available to you at the best price those companies will allow. You won't have to ask for a discount because it is already there through our web store.
The same thinking has been applied to the majority of our pen inventory. Of course, there are some items we're not allowed to discount, but now when you look at the Flax website, you'll see that the prices have been adjusted to compete with others. We'd love to hold our prices given that we're struggling to survive, but we're hoping you'll support the "store you know" by shopping with us. Also, if you subscribe to our Instagram account, that's where you'll find the latest announcements - oftentimes made before we can get a product photo or information onto our website.
Please tell your friends, family and others - and remember that we offer a variety of services - we're much more than a pen store!
