Last week I spent a couple of days in Edinburgh seeing friends, and decided to pop in to Jenners department store on Princes Street in Edinburgh to see if I could say hi to Craig, the manager of The Pen Shop. I found my way up to the 2nd floor and over to the Filofaxes like a moth to a flame. Then I marched up to the first male I saw and asked, "Are you Craig?" Luckily for me, he was. I introduced myself and felt slightly famous when he said, "I recognize your face."
Craig was busy, but he very kindly took the time to show me their (excellent) Filofax selection. He also pointed out a whole bunch of Filofaxes that are on 30% discount because Filofax UK has discontinued them! Hold onto yourselves, I was shocked at what organizers are being phased out! I wrote a list so I could report to you in full what Filofaxes you should panic-buy (I mean say goodbye to!).
You might have known this already, or guessed it based on the deep discount online, but the entire Amazona range has, sadly, been discontinued.
The Cuban organizers in the Ink color are on their way out! It's a shame because this deep, rich blue color is so beautiful.
The Malden in Crimson is discontinued!! ACK!!!!
So are the Chameleons in Spring Green!
ALL of the Adelphis are no more!
The Domino binders in Lavendar are being phased out.
So are the Finsbury organizers in Aqua! I was so surprised about this since the Aqua color is so new.
I think all of the Mode binders are discontinued.
And, the Sienna binders are discontinued too.
I have to say, Filofax better have a pretty remarkable lineup coming in to do away with these beautiful binders! *taps foot expectantly*
I'm proud yet also disappointed to say I somehow resisted the strong urge to buy any Filofaxes, even the discontinued ones. But my daughter wouldn't let us leave without buying a Hello Kitty wall calendar!
I didn't have nearly enough time to peruse The Pen Shop's line of beautiful pens and stationery, but it's definitely worth a trip in to Jenners to check it out.
Many thanks again to Craig for taking the time out of your busy day to talk to me, it was really nice to meet you in person!
