Where does one find Fountain Pen Ink?

So, ok I admit I am a sucker for the old-world charm, but it seems I cannot locate this thing anywhere. I have a nice Parker Fountain from England, and I would very much like to use it. But it seems that none of my local stationary shops/bookstores or Staples carries it.

Have people stopped using fountain pens altogether? Anyone have any insight?

Also, please I am looking for good quality stuff, not some cheap brand that will clog up my pen.

We got a shaeffer calligraphy pen for one of our children ... and while staples had the insert cartridges, they were pretty pricy. We ended up just ordering a dozen or two refills from www.misterart.com.

I get them shipped to a mail box place in the US and go down and pick them up, so I don't know if they would ship into Canada (or even if they have your product) but you can always check.

If you're in the GTA, you can pick up a good assortment at Sleuth and Statesman. If you're in Vancouver, Vancouver Pen is good.

I tend to order on-line - www.swisherpens.com is a great source, and they're having a 10% off sale right now (use HOLIDAY -- or maybe HOLIDAYS -- at check-out). I love the Noodler's line -- their black is fabulous, rich and waterproof, and they have a great selection of really vivid colors.

Thank you. I am in New Brunswick so unfortunately those stores are out of question. Alas, I wanted to buy something locally but it seems online might be the only way to go. Thanks for the website suggestion. I will check them out.
