I Trade A Personal Finchley In Teal For A ...

Hello everybody,

now this is going to be  one strange post, you have been warned! :-)

Lately, thanks to my fellow bloggers and Filofax addicts, I've been lusting over a certain Filofax. And, OF COURSE, it is another discontinued binder that is hard to find!

So I had to be inventive: how do I get one, what offer to make to maybe persuade someone to give hers away? :-)

I hope the offer is challenging (and fair) enough, because I chose to trade one of the lovely, very much sought after (and discontinued) Filofaxes as well:

I trade my Personal Finchley in Teal for a Personal Baroque in Turquoise. 

Let's see what happens: anyone willing to trade? :-)


  1. What a great idea! If I had it, I would have traded with you straight-away. I love your Personal Teal Finchley! Good luck with the trade . . .

  2. Hi, I have a personal Baroque in Teal which I would trade for your Finchley! If interested you could email - jenparker@hotmail.co.uk

  3. @Doris: with your cololection of exuisite biders, I think I'll find some ways to take at least some of them away from you! ;)

    @JasJan: YAY!!! :) Off to writing you an email... YAY! Thank you!

  4. oooohhh what a great idea!
    I am after a Pink Personal Baroque. I will trade for..... love-letters!!!! come one peeps! I am serious! :)))

    Vanjilla, I am so glad you got someone willing to trade! How is your vertical slots struggle going? I think I finally found a way to work around it. I will be posting about it next week. yay!

    1. Hehe, Lime Tree, thank you - it wasn't easy and it took me quite some nail biting though! :)
      I love your idea, haha... hm, which Filo would I sell my love-letters for? I do have some interesting ones, you know! :)))
      To be honest, I didn't expect a positive reply, knowing how sought after Baroques are, but having heard someplaces that some people prefer stiffer leather... I'm really thankful to Jen for accepting the offer! And I hope your pink will come your way real soon, I'll let you know if I encounter one!
      Ah yes, the vertical pockets! Can't wait for your post as I still don't love them (they were myonly doubt in the Baroque case) but will obviously have to live with them! Please, publish the post soon! :)

    2. Did you get your new Baroque yet? Please post some pics when you have it! :)

    3. Hello Lime Tree, it's so good to know I'm not alone in waiting anxiously! :)
      I expect it will come towards the end of this week - and will let you see the pics! :)

    4. Hi Vanjilla, how is that new teal Baroque treating ya? ;D
      Today the mail finally dropped my brand new pocket pink! I almost faint! hahahaha
      I thought a Baroque fan would understand that so decided to come here to share! :)

  5. Hello,
    I know this blog is old...but I was wondering if you still have the Teal Baroque? If so, would you be willing to sell it?
