About Pen Faire:

Because of the pandemic this continues to be a Pen Faire with a pivot, with the appointment approach to ensure a safe, comfortable and quality experience. Give us a call to book a time to meet with pen specialist Jane Andreasen, her protege TJ Ransom, or guest "nibster" Stephanie Boyette to help you pick the perfect pen(s) for your writing pleasure.

FLAX has been hosting Pen Faire for over 20 years. Our Fine Pen Department is part of what makes FLAX distinctive and a one-of-a-kind destination for creativites. We pride ourselves on our expert staff, who will walk each customer through our selection of fine writing instruments, allowing you to test each pen so that you can find one that fits perfectly with your aesthetic and penmanship.
