Our Club History
Started back in 1987, the Southern California Pen Collectors Club is considered by some to be the precursor to the national club, The Pen Collectors of America. We have members of all ages & visitors come from around the globe. We all share interests in writing instruments, especially FOUNTAIN PENS, both vintage fountain pens and modern fountain pens. Our meetings usually include a presentation and we always have lively discussions on fountain pen usage, collecting, trading, buying and selling, tall tales of acquisition, plus repair and restoration techniques.
Meetings of the Southern California Pen Collectors Club are a great place for Los Angeles and Orange County fountain pen collectors to buy, sell, or trade vintage fountain pens.
