Pink Lamy Safari w/Medium nib. Plus some extras he threw in. From Goulet, my go-to for all things FP related.
Z28 Converter, 8-pack of ink samples, Rhodia Heritage Book Block B5 Notebook.
Several of the samples are inks I've wanted to try, the others all look very interesting. A couple brands I haven't tried yet. Finally get to try Rhodia.
I think I'll load the Safari up with Yama budo, should look real nice with the Medium nib.
Kudos to Tommy Tyrone.

Excellent! I have that Yama budo ink on my short list to grab at some point.
 
This weekend there was a sale at a local art supply, 25% off everything. I was restrained...

Rainbow set of cheap pens, and a few notebooks.

No picture but it did happen.
Picked up a NOS fine nib for my Parker 51. It was $75 but will make my P51 a brand new pen : super happy about that.
 
A soon to be here pen... Once it gets here from Japan. But my first snowflake or bird splat . A MB no. 24. I think I got a great price on it. Looking forward to my pen new to me pen in a few years.
The 24 was a second tier pen in the 60s and a piston filler which is right up my alley. Gorgeous looking pen with the black resin and blue ink window. Hooded nib is whatever but they were competing with the P51. Screenshot_20191201-212641.png
 
They may have sold the 24's as second tier, but they are first rate pens in my book. Other than coloring and perhaps the "meisterstuck" name, I dont really know what the difference between a 14 and 24 is.

Since it was a Sumgai price and if it writes like the only ever MB I've written with it I'm buying a lotto ticket. 😁
 
Found a platignum petite, boxed with instructions NOS for £10.55 inc postage to my front door. Its the 50's style in the brown mottled style.
 
Very nice, John, reminds me of one I have :biggrin1:

Although I haven't always agreed, many folks say the older W.Germany nibs are nicer .... How's yours?
Thanks! The nib is fantastic. Very smooth with that nice springiness. I haven’t used enough Pelikan nibs to know if that emblematic of the superiority of pre-unification nibs. But it’s a great nib. I’m in no rush to replace it, although I fancy the idea of finding an interesting vintage gold nib.
 
The bottom one is my NOS platignum Petite lever fill, I've put a new sack in it and cleaned / flushed it out. While a little scratchy it writes quite well, (current ink is sepia by manuscript). The other I think is an old Parker slimfold in Garnet. Yet to receive it but if its anything like my green slimfold (which I foolishly sold) it should be a smooth righter.
