I love my Belmont family!
I had two Personals for several years, then I donated one of them to Laurie to use for the Comparison Project. She loved it so much that she sourced and bought an A5. They are really hard to find so when another one came up in the Netherlands, Laurie let me know as she knew I was looking for one. Thus my first A5 came into my life from Kim in The Netherlands. What a stunner it was!
After that, Laurie contacted me to ask if it would be okay if she sold the Personal Belmont I had donated her, as she was raising funds for another purchase. I told her it was perfectly okay as the Personal was hers to do with as she pleased. While we were chatting, I took a chance and asked for first option on her A5 (which she was also selling). She kindly sold it to me for what she had paid and voila! I had to A5s.
Then Kim contacted me to say she had found a Brown Pocket Belmont in the Netherlands. She sent me a photograph and it was gorgeous. I said yes immediately and voila! again – my family is now complete
Aren’t they lovely? If you ever see one come up for sale, jump on it. They are fantastic quality, very stylish, wear like iron and are made of the most beautiful leather.
