Bistro Chalk Markers ~ Product Review

Okay, so almost a year ago, my friend Anne Marie posted about her kitchen chalkboard and about chalk markers.

Say what?


As in, you can write on a chalkboard and not have chalk dust everywhere?

Sign. Me. Up.

So, I headed over to Amazon and found a set of 8 colorful chalk markers. Woah! They came with a pretty heavy price tag! So, I added them to my wish list, and checked in on them every now and again, thinking how cool they were, but never putting them in my shopping cart because I just couldn’t justify spending $30 for a set of markers. No matter how cool.

Fast forward a bit. I got an Amazon gift card from my sister-in-law for my birthday. I once again headed to my wish list and saw the markers. I decided to look for other chalk pens that might not be quite as expensive. I found these:

A 4-piece Bistro Chalk Marker set for $9.00. Even though they had mixed reviews, I decided to give them a shot. I even had enough money left over on my gift card to buy my husband The Essentials of New Testament Greek. That’s just the kind of good wife I am..

I could not be more pleased with the markers! They are bright, fun, and write like a pen and not chalk! They wipe off with just a damp cloth with no left-behind residue.


It makes writing my menu for the week oh-so-much fun.

And isn’t that what we all need? Just a little fun?

P.S. This is not a paid product endorsement. I just liked the markers and wanted to share!

    As I read this in my reader, I got excited, thinking you were going to give a tutorial to make your own…I need to start by reading and not just look at pics!

    Your board is lovely and you inspired me to buy some chalkboard paint!

    Oops! Sorry! I did make the chalkboard, though. I wrote a post about it here: :)

    Very cool. I may have to buy some of those. We have a chalk board near the door and since we don’t have chalk boards at school anymore, I have about 100 pieces of chalk! But it gets messy. May have to get the markers for special occasions :)
