    1. Hello! Glad you liked the post! Thanks for the feedback, although I didn’t disclose the price because they do fluctuate a bit, although I’ll keep that in mind, thank you!

  1. Hello Celz! Thank you for the love and shout out for our shops! I love your blog. This post is very helpful for newbies! Thank you again and happy inking! – Sienne (Inkcatcher, 1/2 of The Nib Junkie)

    1. Thank you so much for dropping by!! I am a fan of your work!

      (Me, deep inside: The Inkcatcher commented on my blog omg omg omg omg omg omg cry)

    1. Hi Ayzza! I got it from NBS Katip. The last time I checked, there weren’t any calligraphy books there anymore :( You can try approaching any customer service rep of any branch so they could check which branches have the stock and they could send it to the branch you want, in case they still have it (this is what I did with another calligraphy book and their service was pretty fast!)

      I hope this helps! :)

  2. hi! can i ask which branch you found the Faber-Castell PITT pens? and maybe how much you bought them for? thanks :D

    1. Hi! I found them at NBS Katip, NBS RobMag, and I’ve heard it’s also in NBS Glorietta! Not sure how much it is exactly but I think a set of 6 is around 300-500 (sorry that’s a really broad range, I haven’t been looking for them specifically. If you want I’ll check for you the next time I go?

      1. wow thanks for replying so fast! if you could check, that would be great! but please don’t feel obliged to, at least now i have an idea. :)

  3. I need wheres is the other store can I buy the brush pens.. I dont have any credit cards or paypal I have cash only please help.. :(

    1. Hi Joshua! Yung mga online stores na nilagay ko accept cash din naman :) Minsan meron sa NBS or Fullybooked. Meron din sa Scribe :)
