Back in April/May, I went home for a visit and was very easily tempted to visit Laywine's by Mr. Rob Maguire (hi Rob!) when he told me there was a pen meet happening there followed by a calligraphy class nearby. I wasn't able to attend the calligraphy class but everything else? I must say, it was a stellar experience. Not only is the store lovely, I was able to meet several pen friends in the Toronto area (hi guys!!), and Peter, the owner of Laywine's, spoiled me with attention, chats, and a few goodies to share with you here. In addition, Peter spent time entertaining and educating my slightly-less-than-thrilled-by-pens brother, making him feel very welcome as well. I also have to say, the staff in the store are top notch: they know their stuff, they love pens, and were so friendly and kind. Everything that makes for a great pen store and shopping experience was all there. If you're near Laywine's or heading to Toronto, I highly recommend you pay these fine folks a visit!
