  1. Love the pictures! I wish Texas wasn't so far away as I would love to join you for your meet ups! I think I would probably hyperventilate walking into a Filofax store!! :)
    Thank you for sharing...looking at all of those Filofaxes definately puts my in my "happy place"!

  2. Great photos!! Kyla I'm glad to see your Deco is as fat as mine!! ;)

    Thanks for the photos of the new stock. The Vintage Rose Malden looks darker in color than on the website.

  3. Oh be sure to check out my take on the day too. Yay! I am up a bit too early for my flight. Ok I shall nap for one more hour. I really hope I have a trouble free flight today!

    And that lovely pocket Deco was Lucy's. I left mine home!

    It was really a great day! I wish you had been there Laurie!

  4. Was thinking of taking my man to Rome for a long weekend in the Summer, but seeing these pics is encouraging me to bring him to London for a week instead - he doesn't need to know that the decision was partly made because I want to go to the Filofax shop... Now all I need to do is work out how we can be 'just passing by' so I can be surprised to see it stood there with all its gorgeous wares on display :o)

  5. Laurie: People were rarely photographed with their own Filofax organisers at these events!!

    No one has any secrets in their organisers... they get looked at!! But the confidence and trust within the group is just so high that letting someone 'have a look' doesn't scare anyone it seems.

  10. What fun! Beautiful photos--thanks for sharing them so quickly.

    @stationery gal I wish Illinois wasn't so far from Texas--a coffee and Filo sharing would be so nice. :)

  11. Jess, which Filo is it that you are holding in the photos? (the pocket one with flowers on it) It looks so lovely!!!

  12. Looks like a great meet-up. I was very excited to read about the plans for a multi-day event! Thhat would make it even more tempting to join from Norway!

    Question: What is the "fat" A5 (?) FF lying in front of Lucy on this pic: http://tinyurl.com/WhichFF
    The one underneath the rosy FF she is holding.

    It looks huuuge - yet rather cool!

    I would like to know more about Thomas' FF case as well. I have received an "order" from a friend with an A5 Kendal and am currently in the design phase. :-)

  13. natalie,

    the flowery filofax is a pocket classic limited edition that i won in a giveaway on the official filofax uk facebook page. its absolutely beautiful but the leather is soooo stiff and i don't think i'll ever be able to use it sadly :(

  14. Schollert: I think that is Jane's Graphic Brown A5 which was very full, just the way they should be.

  15. Jess, I absolutely love it!! If you ever happen to sell it, I'm your (wo)man. You must contact me!!!

  16. I think I'm going to have to fly over to the other side of the pond for the next London meet up! Great photos!

  17. Schollert, that is indeed my A5 Graphic Filofax. In reality, not as huge as it looks, but full of home made Filofax pages. Love creative designing. Bought very reasonably in TK Maxx recently at £16. Black one lovely too, more like a slate grey. Glad you think it is cool!!!! Jane xx.

  18. I have been reading this blog for some time now, but have yet to comment. I however cannot resist after seeing the Aqua Chameleon. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but is it as beautiful in person as it seems in the pictures? If so, how long must I wait to see it on the US filofax site?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Saffronia the aqua chameleon is really beautiful in reality. It is one of the few new ones that impressed really.

  20. Does the aqua Chameleon look more aqua in real life? In the photos and website it looks more gray.

  21. Thank you for these fantastic photos! Brings back the whole day immediately, which was great fun and worth travelling every single mile!
    Looks like there's much interest in my travel case... My girlfriend doesn't share my love for Filofax, but accepts it. Just until I came up with this case - she called me crazy. Maybe I could share a more detailed description and a sewing plan on the download page?

    Regards and greetings to all!
    Thomas

  22. awwwww looks so fun! if only there was a nice train system here in the us, (not to mention A FILOFAX STORE) might be nice to have one of those little meetings over here on the other side of the ocean

  23. Right Snarling? I can't even imagine having a real life Filofax store within (reasonable) traveling distance! Everywhere I've been in Chicago is just so disappointing- the last place literally had to do sheets and lavender paper- that's it! I asked if he had binders, and he said: "No, we don't have the binders in store, but we can order any one you want." Well duh, I can do that myself, thanks!

    And Skhen, you are in Illinois? Where about?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Which Filofax store in London was this? Everytime I go to London I tell myself I will stop by there and I never manage it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi Jeff
    It is the Neal Street store which is close to Covent Garden... also close to the big Apple store.

    We met up at Tate Modern on the south bank of the Thames.

    Regards
    Steve

  26. Caribbean Princess, that is rather wonderful! I have high hopes that you were able to capture a few more images of the Aqua Chameleon for me to drool over until I am able to get my hands on one?! New Filo models are so exciting!!!

  27. I want to go!! I really have no excuse - I'm on the main line to Kings Cross. I just hate London!
