We are very pleased with the growth of the Long Island Pen Show in 2009. Buyers and sellers were, by many accounts, very happy with the brisk activity. The numbers of vendors and patrons has substantialy grown and the level of activity at the show at its peak was impressive this year. By noon on Saturday there was only one unclaimed table. This year we introduced the well, received Caligraphy and Handwriting Workhsops adding an addition dimension to the show as well as the Silent Auction. We wish to express our gratitude to our sponsors without whom this growth would not have been possible.
