Group Description

NOTE: This is NOT the actual club!!! This Yahoo Group is a free Chat Room / Bulletin Board where we invite you to post your questions, new found information & have discussions. We'll do our best to help out or point you in the right direction.

To actually JOIN the Club you can come to our next meeting or call Fred for more information, see below. Joining the local club involves a modest yearly fee used for stuff like postage & pizza at the meetings. The attendance is usually 20-40 or so from our 120 plus roster & visitors. Our meetings are held 4 to 5 times a year in the LA & Orange County area, usually at a member's home or some facilities made available to us.

History: Started back in 1987, the Southern California Pen Collectors Club is considered by some to be the precursor to the national club. the Pen Collectors of America. We have members of all ages & visitors come from around the globe. We all share interests in writing instruments, especially FOUNTAIN PENS, both vintage & new. Our meetings usually include a presentation & we always have lively discussions on usage, collecting, trading, buying & selling, tall tales of acquisition, plus repair / restoration techniques.

Our club's spiritual heart is the Fountain Pen Shop in Monrovia, located East of Pasadena. (Formerly the FPS of LA!) 3rd generation shop owner, Fred Krinke is a life long pen aficionado, treasure trove of pen knowledge and a master at repair/restoration so if you need to get a new found treasure or beloved favorite fixed, see Fred! They have a fine selection of new & vintage pens, too.

ON TV!!! In an episode of "Visiting with Huell Howser" Huell joined us for our November 2005 meeting & rediscovered the joy of Fountain Pens! The DVD of the show is available from Fred and it's also shown in rotation on PBS now & again!

For Club info call Fred Tuesday-Saturday 626-294-9974 at the Fountain Pen Shop in Monrovia.

Don't forget to visit us at the LA Pen Show in February!
