I went looking for cards and stationary. There was some, and some of it was attractive, but the focus is pens.

I went in looking for a small, everyday pen and the lady was very helpful! She asked for the rough size of pen and my budget and got me the perfect pen from the downstairs storage bit. I am extremely pleased with my visit!!
