Truphae Anniversary Event Recap

Last week we enjoyed celebrating the second anniversary of Truphae opening their brick-and-mortar shop in Greenville, South Carolina. We were so fortunate to spend a few days in town to celebrate with the Truphae crew.

Kenro has a strong history with this store and we were proud to see how much they have grown in the two years since their opening. With a store that’s friendly and inviting, it’s no wonder the locals in the area love Truphae as much as we do! And they’d know – Greenville is a vibrant city with a growing market for pen enthusiasts in the Blue Ridge Mountains area.

While there, Kenro displayed many of their top-quality pens during the opening, including Montegrappa, Aurora, ystudio, and Esterbrook. We were able to chat, network, and share a few laughs with guests during the two-day event.

We wish Truphae continued success with their retail space and we know this is just the beginning for them!

Fountain Pen Hospital Pen Fest 2021

Fountain Pen Hospital Pen Fest Announcement

The summer street festival is as much a part of a New York summer as a Yankees game, hot dogs with mustard from a streetcart, open fire hydrants and a soft serve ice cream truck parked on the corner.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of the Fountain Pen Hospital Pen Fest, a summer celebration that also kicks off the 75th Anniversary of FPH and the reopening of our remodeled showroom.

Featuring AuroraMontegrappaPininfarina, Otto HuttYstudio and Esterbrook, the Pen Fest will be an extravaganza to celebrate a whole new season of writing instruments.

The team from Kenro, and all their new releases and limited editions, will be in attendance and if that weren’t enough our good friend, and pen reviewer extraordinaire, Penboy Roy will be in the house to tell you what’s on his mind.

We hope you will join us for this auspicious occasion of friends and pens, Wednesday and Thursday June 16th and 17th from 10:00 to 3:00
