During these crazy times, it’s super-important to support your local shops and small businesses as much as possible. There’s a very real chance that many of them will not make it through this time of social distancing, shelter in place and quarantines.
In an effort to help out (at least for fountain pens), here are some links to online shops you should consider before buying anything from a mega-retailer like Amazon.

Don’t Forget Your Local Shops
From what I’ve seen, most local shops are still offering some sort of curbside pickup or delivery option. Since I have no idea where you live, please call or check websites for local shops and see if they’re offing something similar.
If you live near Denver, here are a few shops where you can still get your pen fix (assuming they are currently allowed to operate):
Please feel free to post your favorite local or online shops in the comments!
Full disclosure: My site has Amazon affiliate links and honestly, I would love it if you bought all of your fountain pen supplies from the shops listed above instead of Amazon. The little money I do make from Amazon is put back into this site, so if you’re making a purchase of something that’s not pen-related, click through any link on my site to Amazon and I’ll still make a bit of money from your purchase! This will allow me to purchase from the above shops as well. Thank you!
