Thanksgiving and a visit to Origami Ink

Hi folks!

The Mrs. and I are in Knoxville for the Thanksgiving holiday. We had turkey and such yesterday, followed by 3 pies. Today is roast beef and birthday cake (for Audrey's dad). I don't know. It doesn't seem like we'll have enough deserts.

Asheville, NC is about half-way between our place in NC and Knoxville, so we like to stop there and let the dog stretch her legs. Of course, it doesn't hurt that we can visit Origami Ink while we're there. They've moved from the downtown location to a really nice little shop in the Biltmore Village, and the new location is really nice.

The shop owners (whose names I I've forgotten...maybe they'll stop by and remind me) are super nice folks. They even let us bring our little dog in to meet their shop-dog, Inky.

They've got a pretty nice collection of fountain pens available. Everything from Lamy and Pilot to Pelikan, Faber-Castell and Graf von Faber-Castell. You'll also find Franklin-Christoph pens and inks in this store, and that's pretty rare. They've also got an extensive selection of stationary and a decent selection of inks (Noodler's, J. Herbin, and some others).

If you're in Asheville, you've got to stop and check them out. Tell 'em I said hi.
