So, you wanna be Sumgai?

We've all heard the legend of the Sumgai who mysteriously appears at the garage sale moments before you arrive and manages to walk away with some fabulous pens at unheard of prices. Haven't you always wanted to be that Sumgai? Well, if so, Sundays could be your lucky day!

It's been a while since I've had a sale at the Pear Tree Pen Company and I'm in the mood for one. But not just any old "get X at Y% off!" sale. That would be boring! I want to have a little fun, so I thought I would try something new.

What I have in mind is the first-ever "Sumgai Sunday," and here's how it's going to work:

Each Sunday, I will put a different item on sale at a very special "sumgai" price. It could be a fountain pen, rollerball, journal, ink or anything else I have in my store. It may be something I carry all the time, or it may be a special item. It could be modern or vintage. Whatever it is, the price will be great! Each week, the pen (or other item) will change. There will be a limited quantity of that item available - in fact, there may be only one. Like I did on my "Surprise" birthday sale back in March, I will hide the item somewhere on my website and, if you're interested in a deal, it'll be up to you to find it.

If it's successful, I hope to make it a regular event. So, be prepared for something innovative and, hopefully, something fun.

To kick things off, I've listed 3 different items at special sumgai prices. Making things easy in the early round, I'll even tell you that one of the items is a fountain pen, one of the items is a writing instrument (but not a fountain pen) and the other item is not a writing instrument of any sort. In total, I have 5 pieces at these prices.

Here's a link to help you find your way.

I did not include the word "sumgai" in the text of the sale item, so there'll be no relying on the ol' search engine (at least for that word, he he he he).

If I'm having enough fun, I may add other items during the day, just to keep things interesting, so check back early and often.

Thanks for stopping by!
