shows are the single best way to learn about the hobby. There will be a number of
knowledgeable collectors and dealers that can answer most of your questions. Even the
smallest show will have hundreds or thousands of pens offered for sale or for
display. The shear number of items being offered can be daunting to the novice
collector. At the same time the wide variety of offerings will give you the chance
for a real, hands on educational experience. Click on the Pen Show Activities button for a
better idea on what happens at a show. The History of Pen Shows is a
great history of the beginning of shows by Don Lavin.
Shows are held at various locations throughout the year. This is the current scheduled dates for the shows. You can click on the buttons for more detailed information on these shows.
