Waterman Clearance Pens

All brands of pens have ranges within their own hierarchy. It’s part of the marketing game to make sure that you have products in your lines that speak to those pen lovers in all economic brackets. I’m glad they do. It’s a good challenge for pen designers to push the limits of quality and aesthetics against the wall of everyday price points. What does a $50 designer pen look like, write like, feel like and smell like compared to a $20 version? How can the manufacturing process be tinkered with to create savings in the higher end pens? Experimentation is key and eventually, the results of those experiments trickle down to the users. Us.

But, there’s another way that pen collectors can get good deals on brand new pens rather than waiting for the brands to become more efficient or come out with a line that is more affordable. Quite simply you only need to take a look at the clearance section of the Executive Essentials online catalog.

The Waterford Pen Clearance Leap Day Event

It turns out that calendars are fairly complicated instruments when used to track the days of our lives. For the most part, it’s pretty straight forward. All that is required of us is to purchase a pre-made calendar, write down our favorite events throughout the year and check it once in a while to make sure we are on course. But, for the folks who put those calendars together and watch over the relationship of our earth years in relation to our calendar years – well, they have their job cut out for them.

leap-day-featured-image_1456735997582_619535_ver1.0Turns out that even though there are 365 calendar days in a year, there are really only 364 and some odd actual hours in a year. In order to synchronize the way we represent the passing of time with the way time actually passes we need to add an extra day every 4 years. If this didn’t happen, the seasons would slowly (and I mean slowly) shift so that at some point the months that we typically associate with summer would be winter. Mass hysteria, dogs, and cats, living together.

To make matters even more confusing, what I’ve described above relates to the Gregorian calendar. This is the calendar that we use here in the United States as well as other parts of the world. Commonly referred to as a solar calendar. But, there are other calendars out there that have different ways of dealing with “real time”. There are Julian, Hebrew, Hindu, Chinese and a Solar Hijri calendar all of which have their own special ways to account for times passage and how to rectify discrepancies.

Here at Executive Essentials the only thing we take the time to mark on our calendars are our upcoming sales. And we have a lot of them. In fact, right now, we have 50 percent off on Waterford Pens. And don’t be fooled by the title, the Waterford Pen Clearance is not a sale that comes every four years or lasts for only one day. But, supplies are limited and it wouldn’t hurt to take a quick look to make sure your not missing out on some great clearance pen deals. To give you an idea of what we have right now, here are a few items.

Hidden Treasures: Vintage Pens

Spring is here and she’s gearing up to kick old man winter in the shorts. And, as he exits the scene everything will begin to bounce back to life and the great outdoors will be humming with a new generation of flora and fauna. Spring makes everything just a bit shinier, a bit more fun, and a lot more exciting. And pen collectors are not immune to the special feeling doled out by the sunshine and warmer weather.

Springtime Means Treasure Hunting

 

Cloistered in their homes all winter, embraced by the warm glow of laptop monitors, winter sales, and eBay auctions, this is the time of year that pen aficionados gear up and get out into the real world. The time for browsing with your fingers is over. The time now to don the shoes of an explorer and discover hidden treasures with our feet. It’s time for garage sales!

All around my tiny town, garage sales are starting to surface. Earlier this week I helped a friend set up for a Saturday sale and was immediately reminded of how treasures lurk in the discounted piles of makeshift shopping opportunities in driveways everywhere. In fact, I found a model of Fenway Park that my friend had priced at $2 set out on the table. He’s a big baseball fan and I was curious why he didn’t want it anymore. He told me he was getting rid of stuff and that it wasn’t worth anything, then went about getting back to work.

Curious, I whipped out my phone and looked up the small model on the internet. Turns out the model was a limited edition and was selling for $60 on eBay. Granted, not a millionaire making a moment, but my friend was surprised to find out that even if the rendition of the famous park didn’t have sentimental value anymore, it did have some monetary value. He pulled it off the table, laughing as I offered to pay $2 for it.

 

Besides random and sundry knick-knacks of value, garage sales are also a great way to find vintage pens and pen treasures of all kinds. And the key to successfully identifying your treasure is having access to the internet via your phone so you can tap into websites like Executive Essentials and others to identify what it is you’re holding. Executive Essentials has names and pictures of a wide variety of pens that will help you identify a wide range of pens and get you close to placing a value on it as well.

So don’t hesitate. Spring doesn’t last long and the early bird gets the worm. Get out there and hunt down those forgotten pens from days of yore and put them back into operation, give them a place to shine and bring them back out into the glow of spring. And, if you don’t find any pens of interest out in the real world, Executive Essentials has pen sales that will always be here to help you get your fix.
