1. Thanks for the link 8^)
    Even though I’m doing the occasional shopping in Selfridges I haven’t watched the TV series and the ivory-topped pencils must be out of stock, I haven’t seen them ;^)
    Just for completeness: Pencils you can currently get in Selfridges (I’m referring to the one in the Trafford Centre, Manchester) are from Muji, Paperchase, Montblanc and possibly Aspinal. There might be more I haven’t discovered yet.

    • Gracious! I think the only pencils in your typical American department store would be some kind of make-up pencils. I’m jealous! ;)

      The show is pretty good. The first episode consisted of Jeremy Piven chewing the scenery, but that turns out to be how he plays Harry when Harry is playing Harry. :) The casting and sets are pretty fantastic.

  2. To be fair, their pencils are not that exciting – and the only reason they have pencils at all is that they sublet (if that’s the right term) their department store to small shops that stock pencils. Other department stores like Debenhams don’t seem to have pencils either.

    I haven’t watched any of the period dramas, but now that you say this one’s good I’ll record it if I notice it being repeated again.
