Well, I had my first experience of ordering from a Filofax site outside of the UK last week. And may I say, it was a very good one!
I love my pocket raspberry Chameleon but I really like the compact size because it uses personal sized refills but isn't as big and bulky as a personal. For some strange reason, the UK site doesn't sell the compact Chameleon, but the Denmark one does! And it's currently at 50% off, just like the Chameleons on the UK site!
Using Google Translate, I paid a total of £36.78 including oversees shipping. What a bargain for a beautiful leather Filofax! I ordered it on Monday evening and it arrived on Friday morning. Amazing!
So, here it is . . .
|The lovely black box!|
|Tissue paper . . . and . . . here it comes . . .|
|Mmmmmm . . . delicious!|
|The first page|
|It came with a vertical appointment diary!|
And this was a wonderful surprise . . . a set of black TOP tabs! Wow! I've never seen these in the flesh before. I'm desperately searching for a slimline Filofax and these will work wonderfully with it. As for the diaries, I might stick them on eBay. Someone may want them as they're different to what the UK site sells but I prefer the 'week + notes' format.
|Oh my gosh! TOP tabs!!!|
|And a lined 2013 diary! That was nice of them!|
The only problem is, I've now transferred back to this compact from my pocket Chameleon and I actually thought it would be lighter (in terms of weight) and more flexible than the compact Finsbury I've got. Well . . . it's not, really. Dammit. *sigh*
I wonder how long it'll be before I move back to my pocket . . .
