For the love of paper planning
I'm not going to buy anything. I'm not supposed to be buying anything I don't need at the moment, I don't really like any of them that much, and I don't want to get messed about like I did with the German sale
Don't shoot the messenger ;-)
Could I be overlooking something or does the Denmark site not ship across the ocean? Such a bummer. :(
@Saddronia - no they don't ship everywhere. I was disappointed too. But my bank account feels relieved :)They also have conference folders and a Cross pen for sale, and a large selection of binders for 50% off
I was tempted by a conference folder, however I dont really need it. None of the binders they had on sale were on my list. Wish my friends and family shared my addiction and I could get Xmas sewn up! Thanks for letting us know Steve.

Thanks Steve - I have now found an A5 to replace the one that I lost on the train last week (along with my work laptop - obviously losing the FF is far more distressing)x
I am sooooo tempted. I don't know what to doooo :(I've placed 3 finchleys in my basket, 1 pocket in rose, 1 pocket in mustard and a personal in mustard... I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'D USE THEM FOR!!! I've just got a new job starting at the end of this month so I can justify the cost... and I'd planned on trying to sell the personal in mustard but what if I like it too much when I see it... Plus I'd already considered buying a personal deco to congratulate myself on my new job. I have 3 filos already, an A5 finchley, a personal songbird and a pocket finchley. I use the A5 for my Uni stuff, the personal as my main organiser and the pocket as my purse. I'm soo addicted though. I already bought 4 from the great german train robbery to give away as xmas presents so I dont think any of these from sweden would be given away... aarrrgh, but I'm so addicted to finchleys!! What would you do? xx
@Deeji - I also love finchleys, and was tempted to buy another pocket one, but once I realized the site doesn't ship overseas, I was actually relieved. You sound like you already know that you don't need these binders, so I'd just make an effort and close my browser and fix my mind on something else for a while - a walk, a talk with a non-filo-addict friend, a bout of reading, watching a TV show. Once time goes by, reason usually wins, at least for me.
Filofax Denmark does ship overseas, http://www.filofax.dk/delivery/First column is Denmark, second is EU, and the third is international. Assuming of course that Google Translate is doing it's job... you will understand my understanding of Danish can be written on a postage stamp!
(aka MyriadPens)I didn't buy anything in the German sale and, despite the fact that I missed out on some fantastic deals, I didn't regret it much. There were simply too many people left disappointed because of poor stock control. Because of this I clicked on the link provided with only mild interest and no intention of purchasing anything. Then I saw it, the personal Finchley in mustard. Not the most amazing Filofax I've ever seen, but it's completely different from all of my others (most of which are black) and I've been longing for a splash of colour. I sat debating with myself for a while and used to currency converter to check approximately how much it would cost me in £s. Before I could talk myself out of it I set up an account and placed the order, which worked out at a very reasonable £24.17 (including postage to the UK).I really, really hope that there aren't any problems with this order. I have absolutely no desire to deal with what so many others did during the German fiasco.
@Steve - when I came to checkout, my country didn't appear in the drop down list, so I'm assuming they don't ship to it. That's OK, just disappointing that not all FF shops ship everywhere.
Four Finchleys (2 pockets in Vintage rose and 2 personals in Mustard) are on their way! :)These will be Christmas presents for friends.
I had dreamed of a new Personal Finchley... but I guess it wasn't meant to be. **sigh**
I didn't order. The rose pocket finchley has disappeared and I'm devastated... *sigh* The two mustards are still available. I KNOW I don't need another, I have no idea what I'd use them for other than to smell them and stroke them. I suppose the mustard pocket could alternate with my teal pocket as my purse, but the personal would just be sat in it's box until I could think of something. Oh I feel rubbish. It works out at £35 for both including p&p to UK which is cheap considering the pocket alone should be more than £40. I've even got my bank card sat in front of me... but it was the rose one I reaaallly wanted. Plus this is the 2nd country to do this sale so do I wait for another to jump on the band wagon and get something I really want? Right. Decision made. *throws bank card to DH* I'm NOT buying from this sale - I'd rather spend £100 on an ivory Deco for my wedding planner than waste £35 on something I wont use! Now to wallow in self pity for a few weeks :(
