About Pen Faire:
At Pen Faire, we invite our vendors to bring specialty lines and brand-new products to FLAX. This is your opportunity to see pens up close that you would normally only get to see in a catalog or online. All pens, including special orders, are offered at 20% off the list price during Pen Faire. This event only comes around twice a year to FLAX, so you don’t want to miss it! Get treated to the VIP experience with complimentary champagne, live music, and breathtaking fine pens at all price points and to fit all budgets.
FLAX has been hosting Pen Faire for over 20 years. Our Fine Pen Department, often referred to as a fine pen boutique within an art supply store, is part of what makes FLAX unique in the art supply world! We pride ourselves on our expert staff, who will walk each customer through our selection of fine writing instruments, allowing you to test each pen so that you can find one that fits perfectly with your aesthetic and penmanship.
Featuring brands like: Visconti, Waterford, Fisher, Regal, Sailor, Taccia, Caran D’Ache, e+m, Lamy, Pilot/Namiki, Conklin, Monte Verde, Faber-Castell, Cross, Scheaffer, Kaweco, Parker, Pelikan and more!
