Stationery Spy #1

Hello all!

What better way to kill some time than to have a wander around the shops looking for bargains???

TK Maxx currently have some delightful gingham journals with pen loop and pen included at some absolutely brilliant prices.  The medium A5 sizes are reduced from £23 to £6.99 and the small A6 sizes are reduced from £18 to £4.99.  They really are beautiful and have perforated pages, useful for A5 Filofax users perhaps???  The journals have fabric covers and lovely, good quality paper, and the colours available at my local store were purple, turquoise, pink and black.  I think maybe it's worth buying a small one just for the pen!

They are also selling some lovely Cross ballpoint pens that have been reduced from £25 to £9.99 - colours available appeared to be blue, black and silver.

As well as stationery, my local TK Maxx is currently selling a large range of Fossil bags in brown, green, purple and floral patterns.  I was very tempted!

Next - Asda Living.  My daughter has been nattering for a Filofax 'just like Esme's' (oh dear . . . what have you started Esme?!), so I'm currently bidding for a similar mini on eBay.  As a result of this, when I spotted some colourful mini gel pens for the bargain sum of £1.50, I just couldn't resist.  They are small and cute and colourful, what more could a little girl with a mini Filofax want???

Talking of pens and Filofaxes, Asda Living are also selling a pack of two (black and blue) Frixion pens for £4.

Now I don't know if any of you are anywhere near Batley in West Yorkshire (I'm not really but I am in West Yorkshire), but I hopped along there yesterday too because I needed a new purse, and they have a discounted Radley/Tula bag section.  The zip pull on my current purse came off, so I went along to The Mill at Batley with the intention of buying a new one, and this is what I got:

It was half price at £10 and is a beautiful soft leather.  It's exactly the same as my previous one except my new one is a lovely deep raspberry pink and my previous one was black, with raspberry bits on it.  I love this style because poppers drive me crazy when they pop open if my purse is having a particularly 'full' moment.  It's also fairly small - I try not to carry too much coinage around with me and only really need my debit and credit cards plus my Matalan and Boots cards.  I carry my business cards, library cards, driving licence and stamps in my Filofax and any receipts I want to keep in there too.

Finally, check out this belter of a Filofax on eBay!  Never seen one of these before!

So, what stationery finds have you come across this week?

  1. Wow some great items there, I went into TK Maxx today, had a look around handbags but no Fossil, which is just as well as my new sale one arrived today :), will go back on Friday when i'm on my own and have a look round the stationary section.

    It's my daughters 11th Birthday so she has just received her new filofax, a magenta domino mix, we're going to sit down together and get it set up ready for High School.

    Wow what a find on eBay, I wonder what the reserve is?
