A pleasant and unexpected interview for BBC Capital

default-capital-imageOn 5th September 2014 I had been contacted by the UK-based journalist Lennox Morrison because she was writing an article on collecting fountain pens for BBC Capital. She asked me if I was free for a telephone/skype interview of about 20 minutes on Monday 8th September in the first afternoon.

She’d like to ask me about when and why I became interested in fountain pens and writing instruments, whether I do so purely for pleasure or also for profit, which pens are particularly special for me. Also, if I have advice for other collectors on where to start, where to buy, how to look after my collection etc.

So after some message we agreed for the interview, that, let me sincerly tell, it was very pleasant and it last around 40 minutes.

The article has been published today, thursday 4th December 2014, in the Capital section of BBC main site. In this page you can read the full interview, while there for International readers, and there for UK only, you can read the full article with other extracts to other collectors like me.

A new free community for antiques, vintage & art object enthusiasts

If you are a vintage objects lover, you should visit @Quid, a new free website built by a collector with the aim to help other vintage collectors, antique lovers and also guests finding good deals or sharing experiences too. It is very interesting and you can find any kind of information or the item you were looking for a long time.

It is not a new entry but I waited for some months before talking about it, just to see if it have had a future or not. And it have grown up faster for sure!

Alan Ehrlich, the website ideator and manager is not newbie either of the web either of the vintage world. I know him by Linkedin because we share fountain pens passion.

He proposed me to mirror my reviews on @Quid… how can I say no? It will be very interesting and I am proud of this opportunity he gives to me.
