If there are any ardent pencil collectors out there, have we found the shop for you! At least according to Jen Carlson, Deputy Editor of the website Gothamist – not to mention “rare lead appreciator living in an ink and screen world.”
Jen came upon CW Pencils, “Manhattan’s Adorable New Pencil Shop’ just as she was losing hope in her search for a Pencil Of The Month Club. But fortunately for Jen, CW Pencils owner, Caroline Weaver has just started such a club and she has begun sending members “a really special pencil (old or new) each month along with its story…”
Of course, for those pencil aficionados who can’t make it to the Lower Eastside on a regular basis, Caroline and the folks at CW Pencils have an online store where we can browse to our hearts content.
