55 E. Chicago Ave.
Writers who frequent this 28-year-old store, the only one in Chicago dedicated exclusively to high-end writing instruments, say their words flow more easily from fountain pens--especially the kind with solid gold nibs that get smoother with use. Find all manner of pens and accessories here, from the brass-based ballpoint Waterman Expert ($95, often marked down to around $80) to top-tier Montblancs ($300-$2,000). The store has regular sales, especially before graduation and holidays.
