✒️🎉 Happy National Fountain Pen Day! NFPD was founded in 2012 by Cary Yeager of Kenro Industries, distributor of and many other impressive fountain pen brands. Also known as Mr. Fountain Pen Day, Mr. Yeager established a day to celebrate and share the use of fountain pens which is commemorated every year on the first Friday of November.
This year we are hosting a Fountain Pen WEEKEND Test Drive Event (November 3 - 5, 2023) with a variety of nibs new to our shop. Come in and try some of Esterbrook’s specialized nibs. We'll have six different Esterbrook nibs to experiment with and anyone placing a special order this weekend will receive a magenta pen sleeve, Esterbrook’s color of the year.
In addition to Esterbrook testers, we will have testers available for Sailor 1911S and LAMY pens, in varying nib sizes. Sailor and LAMY have also generously provided Penny Post with bottled ink and cartridges to be given with the purchase or special order of a fountain pen, while supplies last. Orders from our weekend testing event will be placed the week of November 6 and we hope to have most orders fulfilled within 2-3 weeks.
We can’t wait to see all our fountain pen friends in the shop this weekend!

We are so happy to be supporting this month through our Good. Works. Wednesday efforts. Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post will donate 20 percent of all non-custom purchases made every Wednesday in October to this wonderful organization.
Move2Learn is a local nonprofit that operates with the understanding that movement supports learning, which sparks engagement and focus. Every day, this organization works with Alexandria’s public school educators and students in all 18 schools, K-12, to transform learning and level the field through movement. Studies show that the more students are active throughout the day, the better they feel and learn. Plus, it improves behavior and attendance. Move2Learn’s main programming revolves around active seating and social, emotional, and academic learning inside and outside the classroom.
We hope you’ll swing by to support this organization while shopping our wares, from beautiful home decor to creative stationery and office supplies. And BONUS: if you bring 2 new pairs of athletic socks to either store to donate, you’ll receive ten percent off your purchase.
Learn more about the incredible work Move2Learn is doing for our community. And we hope to see you at our stores every Wednesday this October with some athletic socks in hand!
