Anyone know if available ba dito yung mga Lamy replacement nibs and converter? If so where and how much? I have a couple of Safaris arriving pero puro medium nib (mura lang kasi binenta kaya binili ko na hehe). Thanks!

alas! may thread pala for fountain pen/pen aficionados like me!

I collect pens and fountain pens, too.

my prized collection is my thirteen (13) Parker 25 flighter fountain pens.

I am a lurker at FPN and FPN-P as well.

Sa pens naman, I am so in love with gel pens and yung Pilot Coleto. I usually ship my Coleto barrels and inks from Taiwan via eBay.

When it comes to sign pens, I only love one nib - anything na 1.00mm and higher.

 ;D

^^I got mine too today!

Sa NBS Trinoma nalang ako bumili kasi traffic sa Eastwood ngayon eh. Good thing may stock pa sila. The rest of the stocks kasi eh naka-reserved na.

I am not fond of the color though. Mas gusto ko yung dating green na nilabas nila na unfortunately eh wala ako nun haha

Here is a photo of my Lamy pens: http://i46.tinypic.com/15xuav7.jpg

hi kclarin! if you'll be disposing of your medium nibs, let me know.

I'm a sucker for broad nibs.  :D

here are my Lamy fountain pens

some of my Parker fountain pens - 45 flighter, 21, I.M. flighter, frontier, vector, 15 and the ugliest Parker ever made, IMHO, the reflex

inks I get to use

Planner season nanaman. Nagtatagal nanaman ako sa mga bookstore dahil sa pagtingin sa mga iba-ibang planner. Might get the Navi planner again. Satisfied naman ako sa lay-out and quality ng paper ng Navi.

Kahit anong pilit ko notebooks work for me better than planners. I just grabbed a jordi labanda notebook instead of getting a BDJ again. Paired it with inoxcrom fuschia pink "jotter"-type pen. so girly! Hehe!

Btw, super good steal yung parker jotter 3s na nabili ko last xmas.

May ganito palang thread, cute! I was wondering where I was going to post about my find yesterday.

At NBS, I found this whiteboard adhesive which turns any flat surface into a white board. Thickness is like an oslo paper, size A4, so you can cut it to your desired size or shape. The adhesive at the back is reusable (?)--you can peel it off and place it somewhere else/adjust. I placed a sheet on the side of our refrigerator to serve as my memo board. Love it! Very minimalist. Bought a Stabilo whiteboard marker for writing.

Other school/office supplies that I like:

I've had this for quite some time too--an old school Dymo labeller.

Also purchased recently a fire-engine red metal pencil sharpener, the one that you attach onto a table and there's a handle which you crank to sharpen your pencil. Love it because it looks so old school since it's made of metal. A lot of office supplies nowadays are made of plastic na.

I like notebooks with thick, unlined paper, and fountain or gel pens for writing.

What else, I have a small wooden cabinet with 7 drawers for knick-knacks--pens (I've lost track of the various Parker pens I've owned), scissors/cutting instruments, sticky tapes (double sided, masking, magic, scotch), glues (Elmers, glitter, glue gun), rubber bands, ribbons, etc. I have a separate set of drawers for different types of paper, and a wooden trunk full of wrapping paper.

I also have a metal stamp with my initial--the one that you use with wax, what's that called again?

^Hah! That IS very interesting! Malamang bumili din ako nyang whiteboard adhesive. hehe... maidikit sa mukha ko. Joke.

I've acquired this leather refillable notebook (holder?) from NBS as well. Victoria's Journals ang tatak nya, and it's called "Pelle" which threw me a bit kasi diba merong Midori look-alike na Pelle din ang tatak pero galing US? Anyway, the leather is treated so matagal bago magmukhang busabos --which is a con for me dahil I like my leather worn and scarred. hehe I've already made my own refills using cheap math notepaper left over from my high school days (circa 1800s LOL)

Fan na rin ako ng Pilot Coleto, pero ang mahal nya sa NBS. Balita ko mas mura sa Cosmos Bazaar sa Binondo, kaya lang talo ako sa pamasahe. (Bakit laging konti ang ink ng light blue refill tapos mabilis magblot? Baka hindi sya pang-drawing talaga?)

And I have a Midori TN, passport size. I haven't found nice-enough paper for a set of DIY refills kaya for now I'm treating it like a pet. Hay, mahal ko na sya. :P

Ui parang okay nga yang whiteboard na adhesive. Maka-bili nga nyan. Hehe

I'm using a starbucks planner given to me by my brother.

I recently acquired an Author's leather bound journal.

Wax seal?
Love that. It's so quaint.

My Cross Medalist (graduation gift from over a decade ago) pen was recently 'borrowed' while at work.  Just bought these as a gift for myself from the Montblanc Online shop...

Feels exquisite in my hand and surprisingly light.  The craftsmanship is superb, I'm thinking of buying another MB this time for my dad. M:)

glad to find this thread mga sis.  :) i thought ako and my mom lang ang super happy whenever we buy school/office supply stuff from bookstores like NBS and fully-booked. though mine is not really the high-end stuff. i enjoy the colored pens from staedtler, sharpie, and even the dong-a gel pens (my office pen is the green dong-a gel pen). i also enjoy buying notepads and notebooks with colorful or earth-inspired design for their pages, and and even stick-on notes (not necessarily post-it brands). recently, i have discovered that my liking for stickers and decorative tape (i.e. washi tape) have been revived. sayang lang, limited na yung decorative tape sa NBS. planning to order some from Hey Kessy pag wala na ok na design from NBS.  :)

i wish na sana may online store ang staedtler or sharpie or even muji wherein one can order the colored pens. minsan kasi, hindi complete yung colors na available sa bookstores.  i'm also looking for the dymo label-maker machine and the colorful tapes that come with it. it will be handy and useful when school opens.  :)

i just need to find a way to organize my stuff. i have a kid who's also interested in writing materials and notepads, that sometimes, he accidentally uses my colored pens and notepads (even if he has his own set of pens na). this is one reason why i'm hesitant in buying the more expensive pens/notebooks.  :(

wow di naman ako excited mag-post dito... ang haba na pala ng post ko...  :D happy collecting fellow office supply geeks! nice to find a home in this thread.  :)
