Stores of Note - Great Pens Stores
White Flint Mall
Web Site: www.bertramsinkwell.com
Bertram's has been in the pen business since 1985. A store with knowledgeable staff and the store receives positive reviews.
I am pleased to hear that you fill be encouraged to try a pen to see how it writes and how it feels in the hand.
The website, one of the first sites for a major pen store, offers a very good range of products, information about pen shows and a Frequently Asked Questions section.
Although I have not had the opportunity to visit the store, I certainly enjoyed reading about Bert Oser and his store in the June 2010 issue of Pen World. "Bertram's Inkwell, the suburban Washington pen shop that Oser opened when he was just twenty-one, is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary this June."
