N.E. Patriots pencil-users aside, I join my voice to the chorus of those wishing you a long and fruitful dream-like life. Work this joyful, inspirational, and delightful beyond measure, is a rare commodity and even rarer pleasure to behold.
Can’t wait to dive into your singular and important new book!
AND, make my first – but not last – order!

I will see you when I am in New York in May! My granddaughter is already asking for more of your pencils.
Happy Anniversary! (a little late)

Caroline, I am a micobe-sized customer of yours, but I adore your concept! I am a pencil nerd from WAY back and I write best with one. Oh yeah, I have ballpoints and fountain pens, but nothing feels like a pencil. I am a dentist and I write my charts in pencil. Shhh, tell no one. My Board in Ohio will put me in shackles!

I thank you for the insight and the courage to open and run your store. An incredible, heart-warming story.

Entrepreneurs are my most favorite people!!

Congratulations! I am so happy for y’all. You’re on my blog because I am crazy for good pencils. I tell anyone who’ll listen to give pencil a chance.

Be well.

I received my first order of special edition gold Blackwing pencils yesterday. They arrived wrapped so beautifully, and with a personal note! I first used Blackwing pencils working in a museum library that had leather-topped tables, and required use of #2 pencils. Such a joy to use. Now, 40 years later, a museum co-worker sent me your website and I love, love your shop/website. Any chance you might carry those European note books with not lines, but small grid pages? My last one, bought in Berlin and made in France, is “Clairefontaine.” Happpy anniversary!

So very pleased to see a dream for you come true and get better and better. An inspiration for many. Been to your “shop” (really much more than that) several times on trips to NYC and it’s one of the truly unique retail experiences in the world – truly. I’ve purchased more pencils and gear online than I’ll ever need but who cares !! It makes me and I’m sure so many others around the world happy.

Don’t stop … go hard.

My wife of fifty years has just started her new project of studying French and has often spoken of how she loves to use pencils in her work. I got on line, found your lovely pencil site and ordered my first selection which arrived on your anniversary day: gift wrapped and with a cheery note from Caroline. Long may this gracious service and perfect product last and thank you for the gleam I spotted in my wife’s eyes when she opened the surprise packet! Eugene

I, too, love what you do to promote pencil awareness. It was not too long ago that I thought a pencil was a pencil. Now, when I order pencils from you, I have a chart on which I rate the pencils on how I like them. I even printed your picture that had the different types of pencils (ranging from 4H to 6B) and intend to hang it in a frame on my wall.
Happy Anniversary!

You make New York…strike that…the world, a better place. Love those pencils…wish you also sold fountain pen ink.

I just wanted to say ever since I discovered you in my Real Simple magazine, I have become hooked! My house is getting over-run by pencils and I love it. I love supporting small businesses and thank you so much for showing me that even people that just write, can have really cool pencils and swag!

While I enjoy the warm spirit in which you serve up your pencils et al, I want you to know that a middle school girl with a learning disability (dyslexia) gets part of what I order and is delighted with same. i THINK THAT YOUR PENCILS BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN HER RIGHT AND LEFT BRAINS. tHANKS FOR DOING WHAT YOU DO.
