Field Trip: @PhidonPens in Cambridge, Ontario

FINALLY! After being here in the Toronto area for over six months, we finally made our way to Cambridge, Ontario to visit Phidon Pens! I had heard many great things about the store and the owners - Mano and Baldeep - so I even dragged my parents along. My dad is the one who got me hooked on pens so he was keen to go, and my mom likes shiny things so it worked out. There was also a cupcake place next door...

The store is located on a really cute street in Cambridge and we visited a Farmer's Market right after. Awesome. Phidon Pens does not have a webshop at the moment, but they are on social media: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook.

Phidon Pens is not a huge shop but it is seriously stocked. I have been to numerous pen stores that, for example, carry Rhodia, but only have three notebooks in stock. No fun. Phidon is chock full - shelves lined with notebooks of various sizes, rulings, colors, etc. Rhodia, Leuchtturm1917, Roterfaden, Midori MD, Traveler's Notebooks, Clairefontaine, and much, much more. A decent selection of pens, including Lamy, Pilot, Faber-Castell, Monteverde, Conklin, and some harder to find (in store) pens like Sailors. I took a few pictures for your viewing enjoyment!

A huge thank you to Mano and Baldeep for welcoming us so warmly. I'm glad we were finally able to stop by!
