It was great to see some new people and a few of the old fans who have been before. We met at the usual restaurant close to Oxford Circus which is our long term favourite as it is easy to get to and there are some reasonable shops near by too.
We stayed in the restaurant for much longer than normal, but it was great because everyone got a chance to talk to everyone else and that is the main reason for these social occasions.
I was travelling light so I only had one organiser with me plus my leather samples case! But there were plenty of other organisers to look at and admire, some unusual less common ones too. Most brands were represented too Filofax, Van der Spek and Gillio and a couple of others.
After the meal we took a walk to Muji, Tiger and Paperchase. I was slightly disappointed that Paperchase didn't have the full range of their own inserts on sale, but not to worry.
Paperchase still had a separate display of some Filofax models and inserts up on the first floor. But of course Christmas decorations and gifts were the main items on sale! Paperchase have a wide range of pre-printed pads for tasks and shopping lists in A5 size that you could punch and use in an organiser easily.
Thank you to Jené for taking some additional pictures. I got talking too much!

Thank you to everyone that came along on the day. I hope to be back in UK in early 2017 for another visit and meet up.
