Great photo op - fun to see the large pencil, scissors and ruler
Nov 2020
Always looking for interesting things on our journey across the USA. And we are constantly amazed at what is out there. We stopped for lunch at Flourz and walked around town. The largest pencil is a marketing tool for the office supply store but it is a great photo op and fun to see. Learned about the rivalry with the other store across the street. No dull moments on our trip!

Do go inside to see the giant scissors and the giant ruler.

The folks here are so nice! We stopped to see the pencil, and a sale person told us about the giant ✂️ inside. He asked if we would like to see those, and of course we said yes! The history behind it all is interesting. He gave us free postcards, notepads, and gave the kids tape measures. Seriously, who does that! Kindness, kindness kindness...and the world could use more it. We will pass the kindness forward!

Shock!

Most likely the largest pencil in the United States! Very realistic. The store was closed when we were in town.

I don't Get the Point
Feb 2020
Prior 2 my overnight trip 2 Wytheville, VA I checked the web site 4 things 2 C. The giant pencil sounded interesting 4 the kids. We talked about it on the 3 hr. road trip. When we saw the display hanging above the store N the middle of the city block we were disappointed. Nothing 2 C that was worth a photo 2 send home. Maybe my family just missed the point.

Many small shops in historic downtown Wytheville and this office supply just one example. There is ample free parking so you can enjoy your experience.

Fun little detour into a quaint downtown area. Along with this, you get a big paint can and the birthplace of Woodrow Wilson’s wife. Don’t forget the hot dogs across the street!

What can I say-it’s a big pencil! It is a fun stop in town and a unique photo opportunity. While we didn’t go out of our way, if you’re in town, you should get a pic.
