It is a lovely pen; a ballpoint with a soft pink body and gold lace overlay. I am not normally a ballpoint girl, but it's nice enough for me to make an exception. There's still a healthy stationery culture to be found in the hospitality industry. My budget normally keeps me to places that have Bic pens and flimsy be-logoed pads, but there are still beautiful supplies to be found.
I am especially fond of the stationery from The Jefferson in Washington, DC. (The bar there is called The Quill. Love it.) Member Gina sent me a link to Travel & Leisure magazine rundown of various letter-writing amenities at top hotels. Have you guys found any great complimentary stationery lately?
