Faber-Castell

Executive Essentials

Recently relocated from the Woodfield Mall. It is about 10 minutes east of Woodfield in the corporate headquarters of their parent company Irv's Luggage. Their website has directions!

The store has a large selection of business accessories and leather goods as well.

Hours: M-F 9 - 5:30; Sat 9 - 5; closed Sunday.

Itoya

This is the main Itoya stationery store in Japan. The fountain pens are on the second floor right when you walk in.

Dromgooles

This is a family-owned store that has a huge selection with none of the arrogance one often encounters in stores selling high-end goods. Larry is a true pen guy(evidenced by his permanently ink-stained fingers) whose priority is customer satisfaction. The first time I walked into his store, I was a mechanical watch guy who knew nothing about pens.
