Black Friday Round-Up 2019

While this list is not a comprehensive list of every possible pen shop sale, I hope I found most of them. I’ve been compiling the list over the past week as emails have come into my email inbox and been adding them along the way as the coupon codes have come up. If your favorite online retailer did not show up on this list, don’t fret. It may have been an oversight on my part. My apologies.

Blog Sponsors (listed alphabetically):


A great Dutch shop is Appelboom and they are celebrating Black Friday even though they didn’t gorge on pumpkin pie yesterday. Check out their sale page for up to 60% off select items. Prices are valid through Sunday but these are all individual items so act fast if you see something you love or think will cross something off your shopping list. And Appelboom meticulously wraps their packages and includes a stroopwaffel. It’s holiday-in-a-box anytime of the year.


Fontoplumo is offering 20% off for Black Friday weekend with the coupon code BF20 (presented when you log in with the option to choose “No thanks, I’ll pay full price” which made me laugh with delight.). If you are shopping in the EU and want to take advantage of Black Friday without the turkey hangover, Fontoplumo is offering a plum deal (see what I did there?).
