The Beginning

Written by Mano Duggal

It was the summer of 2007 and Baldeep and our son Arman went to the Toronto Pen show at the Casa Loma. Baldeep said to me when they got back, "lets open a pen store”, so began a search for all things Pen, Paper, Ink and more.

Sept 19,2008 was the first day we opened, and as scary as it was to open a Pen store in a time when everyone had told us not to, we had such an amazing response. So many of you read our ads in the newspaper and heard us on the radio, came one by one and I am so proud and humbled to say that we are going to be celebrating our 10th Anniversary this September.

I want to thank each and everyone one of you that have come from far and wide to shop here. We hope you will join us for our celebrations this September 14 & 15, 2018. We have lots planned!

Samples of pens, notebooks, inks, leather bags starting arriving in our home and we were over whelmed with the beauty and craftsmanship of so many writing instruments and it didn’t stop there. We found the perfect location in the most beautiful part of Cambridge, downtown Galt. We are nestled in this beautiful town which has a river that flows through it and home to such beautiful Architecture.

Our shelves started filling up with beautiful notebooks and we made a corner for the Inks and the pens had special display cases that were made especially to house them.

We have forged such strong friendships and have had the pleasure to have share in your lives and for that I am so very thankful.
