A gorgeous Filofax Classic Mashup on eBay yesterday

This absolute beauty sold on eBay yesterday – it went in only a few hours and for a really good price! Because there were only 25 made of each of the two colourways, this was a real steal and, as they say, a unicorn!

I already have this version and am looking for the second of the two colourways, but I have never seen one!

I do know that if you are patient, all things will come in time. So don’t be despondent if you missed out on this one –  I am living proof that everything pops up sometime. Over the years I have managed to collect some true rarities.

I see so many people so desperate to find the flavour of the month that they a) become really upset if they lose out on something or b) pay huge sums for it when it does pop up. But what you want always pops up if you are patient. It’s hard I know – I am not the most patient person myself – and our society seems to want instant gratification. I know how frustrating even a ten-day wait for a parcel can be….but what you want will be all the more sweeter for the wait if it is really hard to find. Set a saved search and take your time. This is the third one that has popped up on my saved search in the last year, and my one was found for me by a wonderful member of our community.

I hope it was one of my readers and/or member of our community who won this baby, because it was a real treasure, in beautiful condition, and an excellent price!

  1. Hi Janet
    I’ve only just discovered you but I love your work. Your post is spooky because I felt like you were talking to me personally. I missed out this week on the Finchley personal in purple that went for an exorbitant price on eBay. It’s nice but not that nice! Your advice is very helpful…and comforting 😉
    Best regards, Star

    1. I am glad you like my blog, thank you! Yes, I have also been bitterly disappointed many times but they all come round in the end. Set a saved search and one will pop up one day, I promise. Maybe by that time you will have found something even better, that you love even more! Sometimes not getting what you want is the most amazing stroke of luck!
