Following a chance encounter Two Ducks owner Claire Leigh is now stocking my pens in her St John’s Woking shop.
Here’s what she had to say on her Facebook page:
“Hey there, well, not so long ago, you asked for more ‘man gifts’ and what with Father’s Day coming up in June (21st), we have some corkers for you here!
The lovely Mike Topp travelled all the way down from Staffordshire this morning to show me his hand-made pens – a mixture of ink and fountain pens which he makes in his studio at the bottom of the garden!
Some are shaped from wood (including wood from his garden) and others are made with origami papers and hand-mixed acrylics. Some have special themed lids too. Each has a card attached with the details of the pen and date it was made .
The ink pens are £29.95 and the fountain pens are £49.95. Each comes with its own black sleeve but you can add a special presentation box at a small extra cost.”
I was rather pleased when a pen was snapped up by one of Claire’s customers before it had even reached the display!
Everyone tells me my pens look good in the photographs, but so much better when you can feel them. So…. if you live in the Woking area , pop in and take a look.
