Pen collecting in Oslo

By Tom Traveller May 11, 2018

I'm going to be visiting Oslo for a week, starting May 18. I collect fountain pens - fyllepen in Norwegian, I think?
Any suggestions for places to shop, especially antique shops or flea markets that I might find old pens in?
Any pen collectors groups that might be meeting while I'm visiting?
Thanks.
tom

Your best bet is at the flea market (loppemarked) at vestkanttorget in Frogner (https://www.visitoslo.com/en/product/?TLp=182045). It's more upscale than the market at Bikelunden. You could also look in the "torget" section at finn.no (online marketplace). Happy hunting!

Thanks, Greg. I'll check the market out.
Also I tried entering fyllepenn into finn.no and did find some pens.
Take care.

Fyllepenn is correct! I have no clue if there are any collector's groups around, but there is a flea market at Birkelunden every Sunday. Take the 11,12 or 13 tram from the city centre.

hmmm.. i dont know, but you can check out the book shops. TANUM. And NORLI in Universistetsgata. (the university street in the city centre) And ARK BOKHANDEL at Egertorget. Also in the city center, close to karl johan, sort of the main street in Oslo. There arent many antique shops, maybe you can check out LUCKY EDDIE in Trondheimsveien 63. Oslos/norways best shop for old cartoons, movies, weekmagazines from the 60 and 70ties. Definitly a place to see. check it out.
