My love of fountain pens began with the Lamy Vista. I still remember seeing this sleek demonstrator on the shelf in a Japanese stationary store. I anxiously waited until I returned to the U.S. to pop in the ink cartridge, to avoid any unfortunate plane leakage, and I was hooked from the very first scribble. In my opinion, the Vista is one of the best starter fountain pens, since its grip guides the user to grip the pen correctly, and the clear body provides a look at the inner workings of a fountain pen.
To celebrate A Better Desk's first birthday, I've teamed up with Pen Chalet to give away a Lamy Vista to a lucky reader. Check out the Rafflecopter entry form below for entry instructions. The giveaway is limited to U.S. addresses only. The winner will be announced on Tuesday August 30th, and all entries must be received by midnight on the 29th. Check out the Lamy Vista page on Pen Chalet for more details on the Vista.
Thanks so much to Pen Chalet for sponsoring this giveaway. Pen Chalet is my go to online pen shop for any large pen purchases, most recently my orange Pilot Vanishing Point, which I hope to review soon. Its awesome prices and quick shipping make Pen Chalet hard to beat! Show them your love by visiting the Pen Chalet site!
