This is just an update on my BIC collection. I added three new BICs to this case. Top row I added a dark blue barrel 4 way with a charm on the top and then to the far right I added an all black 4 way. Bottom row I added a green metallic 2 way to the collection. There is no end to the number of BICs out there. Add them all to your collection.
Rad and Hungry are stationary hunters that go out and get notebooks, pens, pencils and more from different countries around the world. They do the traveling so all you have to do is look and get what you like. Well here I did some trading and look what I got. Two notebooks, one on the left appears to be from Turkey, the other from Denmark. Both have very nice paper. Three yellow BICs that look just like the ones made in France but these are made in China. Top three clear BICs have "BIC NS Fine France Design Easy Glide" printed on the side. These also are made in China. Last are three BU1s and they are made in Vietnam. Want to thank the Rad and Hungry crew for making this a very fun trade. Add all this great stuff to your collection and visit the Rad and Hungry website at www.radandhungry.com. Great Stuff.
I have not been adding as many displays as I did at one time but I could not pass on this one. Who did not want a nice All-Rite pen and pencil set For Christmas. These are very sharp looking pens and pencils. The pencil is a 0.9mm size but the refill for the pen is not a common type so to get one working may take some time.
These are all brand new with their nice plastic box. Add them to your collection.
Early 70s I would think. You had to be cool to have one of these fine sets. We have the yellow/orange T220 with a Wordpicker highlighter. Then we have the Black T220 ball point with a Wordpicker. Last we have a Scripto Thin Line 49 pencil. These use 0.9mm lead. All these are great items to collect but I think you should open them up and use them. The T220 ball point pen has always been one of my favorite pens and refills are easy to fine. Nothing like using a 40 year pen or pencil. Add them all to your collection.
Here we have a very nice walnut desk organizer. It measures 10 1/2" by 6 1/2" and is about a inch deep. I am told from the 70s.
You open the lid and you have a slot for an eraser, below that post-it tabs that are refilled from the back of the case. Then a Rhodia small bloc pad, Post-it notes, a slot for paperclips and at the bottom a slot for a pen. I have placed this Desk Organizer on my desk and it works fine. Add one to your collection.
Her are two new pens in the Supply Room. Top pen is a Conklin Herringbone ball point pen. Most places I have seen this pen for sale it is listed for about $85.00. I bid using ebay and got it for $16.00. The second pen is a Monteverde Regatta in blue and white acrylic. I have seen this pen for $$85.00 and I got it for $22.50. It does pay to shop around. Both use Parker refills so with the different refills available you are sure to find one that works for you. Add them to your collection.
Parker Vector pens have been around for a while and I am sure we have all had a Vector rollerball or a fountain pen at one time or another. This is a some type of rollerball prototype set from around 1986. There is only one pen which has a blue top and blue at the very bottom of the pen yet there are three other caps in red, black and green. Nice set for my collection add one to yours.
