This is the small flea-market in my town, well part of it. Every time I visit a market it's a different adventure, no matter how many times I've been there before. Sometimes I'm lucky and find many great treasures, some other times I go back home empty handed, but it's a great experience either way because I get to see many different things I never thought I'd see for real or even imagined they existed.
Last weekend I made a nice loot if I can say so myself, especially since I picked everything up for a few bucks: a flock of Pelikan pens and three brand new, yet unreleased, Moleskine Star Wars LE notebooks.
Then in red and attractive purple a couple of simple school pens from the late '80s I think, but they sport a nice M steel nib I can always grind down and play with.
And last one of these elusive mystery pens I already found last September. Some people over at FPN said it could be a M150 version for the Japanese market that somewhat was distributed in Italy, who knows if it's true. Anyway it's in a nice shape, smoothly-working piston filler, gold plated F nib, really an amazing find for the price I paid.
The Moleskine notebooks appear from time to time in a stall at this market, usually well in advance before sold in stores. This time they had some great Star Wars LE edition :) I think these might be some kind of sales representatives sample or better test copies from the firm that makes them (remember: printed in China, assembled in Italy).
I'm glad anyway, the price was great, and even managed to haggle a little as a long-time customer.
