Just a quick note to say A5 Kendal sale/swap here.
After seeing lots and lots of Filofax blogs about the Personal Zipped Holborn in wine, I decided to phone City Organiser and order myself one and because I used Philofaxy's 10% discount code, I got it for £55.....fantastic! Even better, I ordered it at 2:30pm on the Friday afternoon and it came the following morning. Now, how's that for service!
The lovely black box
Inside was a 2012 diary and a free Sunchie Ball Pen.
Behind the tissue.....A thing of beauty! Notice the lovely leather tab on the zip.
An outside pocket.
The inside....I noticed right away this wasn't going to lie flat without some training.
Then I saw the rings.........
And noticed if I try to lie it flat, it puckers really bad in the corners and forces the rings to open further!
I've wanted this Filofax so much, I thought, can I live with this, would I be able to fix it myself? Then I saw the back cover.... OMG! Look at those creases! Believe me, they were a lot worse than the photo shows.
So to continue with the rest of the review.....This is the back pocket, inside there, is a zipped compartment too.
Overall, this is a lovely Filofax and I was in two minds whether to keep it or not, but there were just too many niggles with it. I've read a few blogs where other people have had problems with the zipped Holborn too, so I thought best to send it back and get something else instead!
