Holiday Wish List: Stationary Geek Edition

I've added a few more things to my Filofax slash Stationery Holiday Wish List (other list is here) and it's very clear to me; I'm a total Office Supply Geek.  If there was a T-Shirt that said just that...  I'd be on my list too.

Number one is something I don't have and totally want;  The Polaroid  Pogo.

It's a teeny mobile printer that works wirelessly with your phone and it's perfect for what I'm doing in my new Passport Midori Traveler's Notebook.  This amazing little thing will will print your photos (2"x3") wirelessly  with a Bluetooth-enabled  phone.

It's similar in size to a mobile phone and since I can carry an A5-sized Filofax in my purse I can carry this little thing with no problem!

Number 2 - I'm still hunting near and far for an older (more first generation-ish) A5 Leather Filofax.  They rarely, if ever, come up on eBay US so I've taken to looking globally but I'm still having trouble; I don't really have a handle on what the oldest A5's were called or when they were made.  I've seen a few older ones but all have the newer ring mechanism.  

I search around all the time and find great stuff but no A5's to speak of.  Just an FYI, if you're searching for a pocket size there's a Pocket Portland on eBay Uk.  I have a personal sized one and it's got the best, softest leather I've ever felt.

There's 9 days left to the auction and the starting bid is £12.75 but the Buy it Now price is £19.99. Shipping is free in the UK and only £8.50 to the US.

Number 3 is all things  stationary.  First a new a place I  found, The Zakka Shop. Their stationary section is AMAZING but so is their other stuff!  If you go visit them look around at all the sections.

I kind of love the 'I will always make time for you planner.  It's A-5 ish at H 8.2″ x W 5.8″.    From the site: :These are the best planners on earth! With a place to carry a pen, extra pockets to stash things, perforated grid paper in the back for handing off notes, as well as the monthly/weekly sections themselves, every last detail has been considered. The dates of these planners run from September 2012 to December 2013. Perfect!"

Scroll through the inside images and prepare to be dazzled.

I kinda love this tape dispenser (they have a cassette tape too). It's made of wood and is too cool for school!  

And since planners are my primary addiction, here's another!

 This one is more a personal size at 4″ x 5.7″ x 0.8″.  From the site: " These compact volumes look sweet enough on the outside, but inside are the makings of an organized life! These yearly free planners (meaning you fill in the dates) have sections to keep your appointments by year, month, and week, while also including sections to help you keep track of your spending, and your heart (via lined and blank note sections). Staying organized has never been so charming."  

Love the inside of these...

Now this Pen holder is adorable and looks like I can slide it onto my Filofax.  I can't tell for sure but it looks like an option for bigger pens.  You just slide it onto the front cover  and you'll always have a handy place to put your pen back.

From  The Japanese Gift Market I found these sticky notes.
Because a day without sticky notes is like a day without dessert; I could do without it but why would I want to?

Looking at the size of these  Decole Rulers I think they would be perfect page markers for a Personal Size Filofax.  Personal size paper is 3.75 inches x 6.75 inches and the rules length is  6.1 inches.

Of course my family doesn't read my blog so they will never know about all of this and I'm seeing a new bathrobe in my future.

But it's nice to dream...

Hi there.
You can be SUCH an enabler!!
Anyways, I have the PoGo and it is fun and great but it does not hold its charge, so your dream of keeping it in your filofax and then printing stuff off, would remain a dream, even if your family read your blog and bought you stuff. However, you could, like me, keep it plugged in on your desk/table/wherever and then print things once you're back, But I realise that might lose the immediacy somewhat!
Not sure if that helps or not...

Amanda - You mean I can print with it just not on the go type stuff? That would actually be okay. Not what I intended but at least I could easily print that size photos.

Do you have a better suggestion for this type of printing? I'd love to hear it


Amanda (from Paper, Pens and Ink) 10/8/12, 11:04 AM  

You can print with it on the go as long as you've left it charging overnight and until the second you need to put it in your bag...
The charge would then probably (probably) last all day if you didn't print squillions of things.
It's such a cool thing and I use mine for exactly what you want it for - my travel journal - where I can print out little pictures of where I've been and write up some notes to go with them. I'm doing that in a Ciak journal which has plain paper on one side and lined on the other ( rather than a Midori though.
Hope that helps...

Tracy Reinhardt 10/8/12, 12:03 PM  

Amanda, Yes. That really helps! Thank you so much!

You find the most amazing stuff! I was on the Omionline site for half an hour! Almost bought stuff too! (:

Tracy Reinhardt 10/9/12, 5:37 AM  

Doris, Isn't that place great??? I just found that one and was so impressed with the things they carry. I resisted ordering so far but I thinks it's a given I will pretty soon.

Oh you enabler you! You have some good finds here and I just bookmarked most of them! I love the pen holders and the ruler bookmarks. I really love the on the go printer. And those little personal size 'book' like planners are adorable! I hope someone in your family is reading your blog and you get some wish list gifts! Also, the comments following your post are quite enabling as well. Keep it coming! :) :) :)

Omoi is the best! They have a really lovely store in Philadelphia, a must-visit if you're in the city. I have the cat-shaped penholder, which I use with my Traveler's Notebook. (I have a cat-shaped tape dispenser from there, too.) I've been pining for one of the little Shinzi Katoh planners for a couple of years now, but it feels impossible to justify when I can't seem to use anything but a ring-bound planner. I love your little wishlists/enabler posts!

You could try one of the portable solar chargers to go with the polaroid printer. If like me yout purse is a suitcase with a long strap... No problem adding that in!
