[Pen/Pencil Review] Federal Reserve Bank Souvenirs

Posted by reudaly on July 31, 2017 in Review, writing instruments |

This is going to be a slapdash type of post. We starting to prep for ArmadilloCon. There are some other things happening this week that are occupying brain space. So it won’t be a “traditional” review post. But it’ll be something. 😎

I get to go and do weirdly random things in my Day Job. Not just conferences, but other meetings in “exotic” locales – such as The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Did you know the Federal Reserve Bank has a museum? You might. They do school trips and other are open to the public for that. But there’s also meeting rooms and a coffee/gift shop.

The Federal Reserve Bank has a GIFT SHOP.

I totally played tourist at my last meeting there. Obviously I bought a pen, but also a decent portfolio for other meetings and such. The prices weren’t bad. The pen has shredded money in it. The pencil was a gimmee pencil from the museum, which may be made from recycled, shredded money for all I know.

It’s a bit ironic that I gave money BACK to the Federal Reserve Bank, but yes, yes I did because. Hello, it’s me. I do these silly random things. And really not that expensive. The portfolio was less than $20, the pen was like $2. Granted the logo is just embossed on and could rub off and it’s obviously not leather, but still. It’s cool. And the pad that came with it? Has days and dates you can circle to date your meeting notes or story draft. The pen is a typical black ink ball point.
