My Filofax Find.







I adore my Malden Filofax, 
But I am a sort of one filofax girl if i'm honest.
But I recently found this little beauty in a charity shop in Plymouth.
The front of the popper button is missing and the leather is getting a little brittle, but nothing some lovely cream won't fix.
The colour is just stunning,
I am so in love.
I don't know how old it is, but I know it's old, the inserts are dated back to 1985!!
So here's where I need some help.
Can you help identify this beauty?
Ally expressed it may be a Cavendish, but I can't tell if the pictures match up?
Any ideas?

  1. A Winchester, in red. Gorgeous, hard to find, and relatively valuable. From 1991 or earlier, but I can't date it more precisely than that. Great find!

    1. The inserts are 1985! :) It's beautiful isn't it? Didn't think it had any real value!
      WOW!! :)

    2. Looks like it's from the tail end of the 80s or early 90s as Josh says. The embossed "Filofax" text used to be smaller than this on the earlier models. The insert dates are from when that design/version of leaf was produced, so they often pre-date the binder. Hope you enjoy this classic.

    4. No probs - your Winchester must be getting close to being a quarter of a century old and still going strong.
