From the owner of City of London Pens:
[pullquote align=”normal”]Welcome to cityoflondonpens, my beloved hobby is collecting fountain pens. I also enjoy restoring old pens and to pay for all the polishes, waxes and tools required – and to make it easier for all concerned I am showcasing these on Ebay. Any hobbyist will tell you that it is almost impossible to make any money at this. I certainly don t because each pen requires a combination of time and love. Fortunately, I have plenty of both. The specialist polishes are very expensive, the equipment and tools are of a specialist nature, Ebay take a chunk, Paypal take a chunk and a percentage of almost every transaction goes to Tearfund. A fantastic charity I have supported privately and financially for many years. In modern terminology it is a Win – Win – Win situation. I enjoy my hobby which pays for itself, Tearfund get a donation every month and you end up with a lovely restored fountain pen at a great price. I offer a full refund if not delighted. [/pullquote]
