November 2022 – In-person Pen Events Galore!

Dear PDX Pen Friends, a recap of November seems in order…

We had the very celebrated return of the beloved Pelikan Hub which was held at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall on Friday November 18th, and was well attended! There were many inks to sample (Pelikan inks heavily represented, of course) and some fun ink-related activities. Could you correctly identify the faux-recipe vs. the actual rare ink? Do you want to donate to, or adopt from the No-Kill Ink Shelter? Pens were also admired. It was a lovely return of a very popular event – we hope you enjoyed it too!

We also had the Pen Bazaar, also at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and had a variety of pens – new and vintage, and I think there was a fair amount of “I sold enough to pay for the new pen I brought home”, or perhaps I’m just speaking for myself.

If you missed out on all that in-person interaction, the December meeting is Hybrid!
