On-Site Restoration at Pen Shows

Main Street Pens visits several conventions each year.   With tools in tow, we set up to do on-site restorations for most of the pen types listed in our RestorationServices page. Pens will receive new sac, light polishing, ink-flow adjustment, etc. On site ultrasound, buffing wheel etc will be available. We will be available to answer your questions, to provide appraisals, and to provide repair estimates.

Be sure to look for us at these pen shows:

Where When Visit the Show’s Site
Hempstead, NY March 2019
Chicago, Il May 2019 Chicago Pen Show
Raleigh, NC June 2-3, 2018 Triangle Pen Show
Washington, DC  Not attending
Historically, the Washington DC Fountain Pen Supershow has been an enjoyable show for exhibitors and patrons from all over the world. Last year, however, the show's change of location and lack of organization led to frustration and anger among both exhibitors and patrons. We have received no indication that the problems experienced last year have been resolved, nor has the show's website been updated except to change the dates of the show from last year's to this year's.

While all of us enjoy pen shows, participating as an exhibitor at a show is an expensive proposition. We are professional pen people, and we need to be able to set up before the public is admitted so that we can work during the show. The complete lack of information about the Washington show raises serious questions about our ability to serve our clients.

For these reasons, we have decided not to attend the Washington show this year. We greatly hope that the problems of the past have indeed been resolved, and we hope to return next year.
