We are thrilled to be "in the box" and considered part of the best of L.A. Still, this is a very challenging time, so if you can support us with your patronage and help spread the word about Flax Pen to Paper, we'd appreciate it. Your referrals are what will help brick-and-mortar retailers like us survive,
Thank you, Erika. We appreciate your kind words and recommendation! We're hoping referrals will increase our business and help through these trying times. We always appreciate a great review.
Our second pen sale of the year began on the 14th and will extend through the 21st. Most of our writing instruments are on sale (with very limited exceptions). If you're ordering on the web, you'll have to enter the coupon code 20202NDPS to get 20% off. The sale prices won't show in the listings or when you select an item for the cart, but the discount will show after you "Apply Coupon" at checkout.
2020 has been quite challenging; we work every day to ensure a comfortable, clean and safe environment but traffic is down, to say the least. We want to see you -- but we'll understand if you prefer to order by phone, email or online. Barely half of what offer is listed on the web (many are "one of a kind" items), but you can always call or email and we can attend to your needs.
This year, we also hope you'll think of reaching out to others who you think could use us. Although we know that's a lot to ask, that might be what helps "brick and mortar" stores survive in these times. Unique gifts, desk accessories, imprinted cards/stationery/ announcements, calendars, planners, journals, photo albums and, of course, writing instruments ... we'll serve any way we can because we love what we do and want to remain here for you.
We're glad you're looking here for news ... and we have more of it. We haven't composed our "formal" news post yet because we're still in the midst of awarding items from our Fountain Pen Day giveaway drawings but there are new items coming into the store, a pen sale coming up, and its getting to be time to finalize holiday card orders. All of this helps us avoid looking at TV - which we're thinking is good. We want to work on creating and bringing joy ... so while you're waiting for the next "real" post - here's a picture of some of the items just received from Fritz Glass:
We also have new ribbons, wrap, holiday and greeting cards, on-the-go items from Bellroy, local artisan jewelry and more ... but we'll tell you more about those in the "official" post. Please check back soon and, in the meantime, please tell your friends about us. We appreciate you doing so.
