Who doesn't like receiving parcels in the post, especially when they look like this one......
The 'Mr Philofaxy' did make our young French post lady smile when she asked me to sign for the parcel, she gave me a cheeky grin as she handed over the parcel !!!
Inside was an A5 Holborn Zip in brown that I had bought from Erin in her recent grand sale.
I'm now starting to see what attracts people to this model. The leather is similar to the leather used in the Malden, just as soft and supple, but because of the design of the interior, the cover isn't as floppy, it gives the whole organiser a lot more structure. The outside on the zip model has a slip pocket, which is quite deep and is great for holding notes or leaflets.
The zip model almost lays perfectly flat straight out of the box as well.
In the left hand side interior you have 5 credit card/business card slots, a large slot pocket at the bottom, A full height slot pocket behind this section, and a leather elasticated pen loop.
The back cover has a similar full height slot pocket as well as a zipped pocket, the zip sits protected behind a fold in the leather which I think is a nice design touch. There is also another elasticated leather pen loop in the rear cover.
Now, you must be wondering what I'm going to use this new addition for.... with my cupboard already containing other A5's.... yes ok! I'm in fact going to move the contents of my 'work' Property Finding A5 Finsbury in to this organiser. The zip format will work better, I will be able to tuck loose papers inside easier without the worry of them getting lost between properties.
