How To Buy

Here on our website you will find “splashes” of items that we carry within each category.   Most of the items we carry are hand crafted and one-of-a-kind, so we are not able to set up an automated shopping experience for logistical reasons.    

However...   Isn’t it much nicer to receive amazing personal customer service instead?

So, how do you do shop? 


Email us anytime or call us during business hours and let us know what items you are interested in.  We will email photographs with prices of the current options available by that artist, pen-maker or whatever it may be.  Of course, if the specific item you saw is still available it can also be yours.  It's, also, possible to have another similar one made for you by the artist (if it has already sold). 

Once you’ve decided to purchase an item we simply take your credit card info. over the phone and ship to you virtually anywhere. 

Something you saw while visiting our store?  Just tell us what it was and we’ll do the same. Think of us as your personal shopper.

Need it gift-wrapped?  No problem. 

Looking for unusual corporate gift ideas for your important clients?  Give us a call and we’ll help you brainstorm something that will set you apart from the rest.

We look forward to hearing from you!
