Today is a sad day as the iconic Art Brown International Pen Shop forever closes its doors in New York City.
I’d only ever visited Art Brown on one occasion but that trip made a tremendous impression on me as it reminded me of the local stationery stores of my youth. For fountain pen lovers, this was *the* place to shop when visiting New York City with its ability to create an instant ear to ear grin at all of their available pen, paper and ink options.
Will you share your favorite memories of visiting Art Brown? What will you miss the most about this store?
