  • Hello,
    I am very interested in seeing if we could carry similar pencils at our independent bookstore here on the Maine coast. Ann is a good friend of ours and I would ask her if we could use her quote on the box; if not (which I totally understand), I could easily contact other writers for permission.
    I LOVE these pencils and I know they’d do very well at our shop, which is open year-round, daily. Please visit our website to get a feel for our offerings:

    THANK YOU! Nancy
