I returned to Baltimore after a visit to your wonderful shop, opened up my packets of pencils to choose a few for myself. (The rest will be gifts for lucky people!) I decided to write a note to the friend who had accompanied me to pencil paradise and to use one of my chosen few, It turned out to be the Caran D’Ache Blackwood 499 HB that I had chosen for its beauty. It also writes like a dream!!! Thank you for a great experience:)

I wanted to include this post in my Link Love this week but I just couldn’t spread the cruelty to Supracolors to the greater masses. This sort of cruelty to top-quality colored pencils must be stopped immediately. Crayola school grade water solubles might be sacrificed for your science experiments, maybe… but a Caran d’Ache?!?! That’s heresy! I can’t condone this sort of behavior.
