Welcome to cityoflondonpens,
My beloved hobby is collecting fountain pens. I also enjoy restoring old pens and in order to pay for all the polishes, waxes and tools required - and to make it easier for all concerned I am showcasing these on Ebay. Any hobbyist will tell you that it is almost impossible to make any money at this. I certainly don t because each pen requires a combination of time and love. Fortunately I have plenty of both. The specialist polishes are very expensive, the equipment and tools are of a specialist nature, Ebay take a chunk, Paypal take a chunk and a percentage of almost every transaction goes to Tearfund. A fantastic charity I have supported privately and financially for many years.
In modern terminology it is a Win - Win - Win situation. I enjoy my hobby which pays for itself, Tearfund get a donation every month and you end up with a lovely restored fountain pen at a great price. I offer a full refund if not delighted. Happy Browsing, Kevin
