    2jakes. I love the pens, but the Quink carton with the Vmail label is really cool.

    Last week I located the Parker manual.
    These Doufolds fountain pens from that time period are somewhat similar to starting a 20s Ford in a way.
    Manual breaks down parts, description
    for smooth operation which is something
    I enjoy.
    I found at local art shop, that Quink
    ink is still available.
    Reason I mentioned this is because
    Quink is not as toxic as modern inks
    and does not clog the internal rubber ink sac.
    Next on the agenda is original Quink
    bottle.

    Ha! That's the first thing that came to my mind, too! All kinds of good quotes from that movie.

    Having recently discovered that making a necktie is not exactly rocket surgery, I came across this lot of patterns and remnants that arrived today.

    Tie lot  1.jpg Tie lot 2.jpg Tie lot 6.jpg Tie lot 7.jpg

    I was tickled to find that many of the scraps are still big enough to get a tie out of, others I might get a blade or two and use an alternate fabric for the rest, or they could end up as bow ties. It's gorgeous material, would have been worth the 25 bucks just to get it out and look at once in a while. A few were of the subtly graduated stripes you find in ties of the '20s. Also included were a healthy swath of lining material, four strips already cut out, a fair bit of plain satin bemberg material (presumably for tips but which I could also use as lining in other sewing projects), and one complete tie (the green paisley one in the last picture).

    Once in a while, Ebay really comes through with a unique, beautiful thing for less than a months rent on a studio apartment.
