Sharing Your Phidon Pens Stories with the Pen Community
It's been over a month now since we set up our new e-shop, and I am so humbly thankful to each one of you who has supported us. When we closed Phidon March 15th, we had to decide very quickly to adapt to move to e-commerce and I am so glad that we were able to offer all things Phidon online.

I am so grateful to my family for their ongoing support and to the Phidon team that worked very hard with long hours setting up e-commerce. Elsa and Arman worked non stop and were constantly supported by Madeline to get the job done. There were lots of Zoom calls and messages between each other to get our new e-shop going!

I have missed seeing you all in the store and look forward to the time that we can all come back together safely. In the meantime, it's been wonderful to say hello while we are doing porch deliveries as well as curb-side drops. It has been so nice to talk to so many of you over the phone, FaceTime, and emails about what we all are going through, as well as how we are using our notebooks, pens and inks. I thank you all for your ongoing support.
I wish each and every one of you safety for yourselves and your loved ones. My endless gratitude to all the frontline workers who are working very hard for us.
Baldeep and I have been so grateful for your support.
I have been thinking of restarting my blog for a while and the inspiration to re-start came from a recent porch delivery I did to Karin, a dear customer and friend, and her nephew, Narek, who suggested we talk about some Phidon stories. So here I am starting a new blog about "Phidon Stories"!
I would like to create a virtual space for you to share your favourite Phidon story with us, and we will share one story every week. You can send your stories to us via email, along with a few photos of yourself and some of your favourite Phidon tools, and we will post them here.
We have many such wonderful in-person stories that we have shared with each other, and now we're hoping to bring that same sense of community to our virtual space.
Be well, be safe,
