Filofax OVC 7/8 binder with black rings

An eBay find thanks to the wonderful, fantastic and amazing Sarah N! I have wanted a binder with black rings for ages and they are pretty scarce. Next stop red rings like the karung binder has! This one, like the Keswick is not leather but the vinyl quality of these older ones is always pretty good.

For explanation of the letter/number codes, see this previous post

  1. Hi!, my name is Gail and I am in the UK. This is the Filofax that started it all for me.Retrieved from the back of the bureau by my husband a few years ago when I was bemoaning the fact that my life was getting out of hand and I wasn’t getting to my sewing machine enough.It had been there, unloved, since the late 80’s and still had some original dated pages. After a good clean, it became, and still is my main planner. It is everything that most enthusiasts hate…not leather, no clasp or even pen loops. But I like the fact that it is a ‘rescue’ planner and it catapulted me into a world that I didn’t know existed, where people talked in a strange language and sometimes even code ( WO2P ?????). It has been a steep learning curve, and yes, a few other planners have joined it now. Hobbies are now far better integrated into my life which makes for a much happier me, so many thanks for all the hints and tips that are out there and for this post, as I never expected to see my humble ( Cobra? ) on screen.
