Welcome to Dave Turns Five Giveaway Number Three.
This time it’s Back to the Past, with “They Don’t Make ‘em Like This Anymore”, and “From The Dawn Of Time”.
From top to bottom:-
- “They Don’t Make ‘em Like This Anymore” - Conway Stewart Nippy No 3 (1.18mm) propelling pencil. Used but good condition, dating back to the days when the UK had a significant propelling pencil industry.
- “From The Dawn Of Time” - Ancient Kauri (0.7mm) PSI Slimline Pro Pencil 24k GT. As explained in this linked article, this pencil was commissioned by myself from a local wood turner. It is new unused, but remember, such pencils and mechanisms are not usually up to the same standards as modern retail...but hey...it's fifty thousand years old!!!!!
On earlier giveaways a few readers made the effort to jazz up their comments by submitting in the form of a poem, haiku, a word play or some other such little something extra. So to enter this giveaway you simply leave a comment here on this posting. BUT...not just any comment will do...your comment MUST be a little something extra...for example a poem, a haiku, a word play, a little prose on the joy you will experience at winning, one sentence on why a vintage pencil will suit you...anything will do, just make a little effort! You do not have to state your preferred prize; you can make your choice after winning.
But wait there's more! The best entry, ie.e the best poem, word play, story, etc as chosen by myself, will be the runner up and receive the pencil not selected by the winner.
This giveaway will remain open for 5 days, after which the winner will be chosen at random, and announced here on this post, so check back in to claim your prize. If you don’t claim your prize within a couple of days then a runner-up will be chosen to replace you.
The fine print
This giveaway is open to anyone and everyone. Both pencils are from my collection so this giveaway is at my expense.
