After looking near and far for her own fountain pen supplies, Jon & Liz opened their own shop, Wonder Pens in 2013, and it’s been a ride ever since. Strapped in the sidecar are adventurous toddler, Caleb, and handsome pup, Super, both loyal and enthusiastic trouble makers.
First opening at 906 Dundas West, with every corner and square inch packed to the rafters, the shop moved across the city in 2015, to its current space at 250 Carlaw, Unit 105.
Micah has been a great addition to our team, and along with working out front in the shop and packing in the back, has already become master button maker. Best of all, Caleb enjoys sitting next to Micah on the bench while she works at the table, which keeps him busy for around three and a half minutes before he gets distracted and resumes roaming the warehouse. We’ll take it.
Danielle is the hinge upon which our entire operation swings, as she keeps our coffee pot running. Her interests include Japanese fountain pens, Russian literature, and Canadian music. She one day dreams to discuss Dostoyevsky with Sam Roberts. She also rock climbs, but not as well as Bogdan.
Derrick is a fan of all things DIY- his past creations include notebooks, pen rolls, and time machines. He also enjoys board games, accounting, coffee, photography, and more coffee. He's also been a fountain pen enthusiast since birth. Allegedly.
