Grace Scurrs are like buses

—— I hunted for a Grace Scurr 75th Anniversary Filofax for years then suddenly, FOUR appeared one after the other. Two of my blog readers bought this one and also the one on kleinanzeigen.ebay.de, and I bought these two, both for very good prices.

If you are looking out for anything, please feel free to always let me know what it is you are keen on and I will keep you posted if something comes up. I also post in the Facebook groups for the attention of people I know are keen on certain models.

  1. What a great story and a beautiful Filofax. I must keep an eye on eBay for one.

  2. Oh wow! Well done, that woman! If you should ever see a teal or pink Baroque (either personal or pocket) in your travels, I’d be very glad to hear about it … Thank you!

  3. Hi Janet,

    I acquired one via kleinanzeigen.ebay.de at the end of last year – I think this could be the 5th of it. It is no. 109 out of 1,921. It is in good, used condition. As you did, I alway wanted to own a duplex and owning one now, that is why I am currently about to switch from my A5 back to personal size again…

  4. So is that 3 you have now??! My mind is boggling! LOL! Will you be thinking of using one of them? I remember you saying you meant to use your first one originally but then couldn’t – and I don’t blame you. They’re really collectors’ editions. A nice investment and someday they’ll be real antiques. 🙂

    • No I have two 🙂 I knew two of my blog readers were looking for them so I let them know about the other two and they bought them.

      My plan is to keep one unused and to use one. I have ALWAYS wanted a duplex so this is my chance! I have the 75th and the 85th special editions so I want to keep one of each in new condition in case I get my hands on a 100th edition in 2021!

      • Thanks Janet, I was obviously a bit confuzzled there. I can well understand keeping one of each ‘as new’ and this way you get to use a beautiful duplex. And just like Grace Scurr’s original. I’m rather excited on your behalf! 😀

  6. NWhat a lucky find. Will you use them or just keep them intact as a collectors item? Very nice.
