I’m headed to the Arkansas Pen Show today and I’ll be setting up my very first (ever!) table at a pen show and I’m super nervous. If you don’t have plans this weekend, and live in the Arkansas area, please pop by the Crowne Plaza in Little Rock this weekend and say hello! The show opens Friday, March 17th and 10am and will be open until 6pm. The show will also be open all day Saturday, March 18th from 9 am until 6 pm and again on Sunday, March 19th from 9am until 4 pm.
Skylab Letterpress and I will be sharing a table full of goodies including:
- vintage typewriters
- letterpress notecards, notepads, prints, and coasters
- rubber stamps
- vintage office supplies
- assorted Field Notes Colors Editions and Blackwing Editions s as I’m clearing some space in the stationery cupboard (Some Field Notes are still factory sealed and Blackwings will be available individually!)
- and our brand new product release, The Col-o-ring Ink testing book!
A one day pass is just $5 and a 3-day pass is $10.
There are evening events both Friday and Saturday night.
Friday night is the Open House and Aurora “Flexi Pen Party” at Vanness Pen Shop. The event starts at 6:30 and goes until Lisa and Mike kick us all out.
Saturday night is the Pen Addict meet-up hosted by the one-and-only Brad Dowdy (AKA Pen Show Husband) and the Arkansas Pen Club. The event starts at 6:30pm and is FREE and open to the general public in addition to all pen show attendees, vendors, exhibitors & sponsors. It will be hosted at the Crowne Plaza but specific location will be announced later.

Great offerings! And best of luck.
Good luck Ana. You’ll be fine. You got through an interview with Brian Goulet! Plus you have very nice products to sell. I wish I could be there to see the item that looks like it has constellations, your Field Notes for sale, your new ink testing paper.
Plus you’re there with fellow pen/paper/ink fans. Have fun!
I am so bummed I missed this! I am just getting into fountain pens and this wasn’t that far from me. I want to try to go to a pen show sometime soon!
