Visitor Tips and News About Big Pencil
A wonderful town to explore -- the big pencil is only one of quite a few worthwhile odd attractions. I visited here based on the tip for this very cool, very huge pencil and ended up spending hours around the area. I love old, oversized 3D advertisements![megan, 01/14/2013]
The big pencil is lookin' good. We went in the office supply store and met the nicest lady inside...she gave us some freebies, which was cool.[Joy, 05/26/2011]
From Pulaski, 22 miles south on Route 11, Wytheville Office Supply suspends The Big Pencil above it's awning. Sure, it makes sense from a marketing standpoint (Well, at least more sense than the giant barber's shears inside; which were brought over, I think, when a local barber shop closed). But it's still a local landmark.[Carl Hanks Jr., 06/01/1998]
