(As of 30 August 2017)
For some time the site has had some serious issues. Database corruption was preventing logins and no content was getting updated. The database issue has been fixed and further steps are being taken to make the site stable again.
I really appreciate everyone's time and effort and I'm very anxious to make sure that time and effort is not wasted. Thank you for your patience.
So, with that in mind…
Welcome to penshops.info, the directory of pen shops everywhere, at least so long as you keep adding locations! It's easy: Add your favorite pen shop, or comment on other listings of shops you've been to. The more information we have, the better a resource this site becomes.
If you want to find a shop near you, try these:
- Directory by country, state and city
- Location Search (click on "advanced search" for options)
- Advanced/Brand Search (click on "advanced search" for options)
- browse around the interactive map
Also, here's a list of all the stores in the directory, sorted by time the entry was modified. This can be useful to check on an entry you've added or edited.
The site is in the process of being built (how 1995!) so forgive some incomplete features. In particular, the location search is not functional (though it was until recently so i think I can get it fixed soon). I haven't figured out quite how to handle the brands for which the stores are dealers. Don't let that stop you from adding stores.
Note: The issue with the seller directory not permitting exploration past countries with no listed states or provinces has been fixed. Thank you for your patience.
Thanks for checking out the Pen Shop Directory!
