Filofax Finchley Expandable Tote Bag

Here are some photos of my new gorgeous red Filofax Finchley expandable tote!

Snap at top for tote, or snap at bottom for handbag

 Here it is with the sides snapped down into Handbag mode:

Even in Handbag Mode it's still very roomy. Here's my personal Filofax Finsbury at the bottom. Helloooooo down there!
Here's my A5 Finsbury in the bag, in Handbag mode. Despite peeking out the top, the bag would actually zip fine.  In Tote mode, the bag holds A4 size (letter size) files and notebooks with room to spare.

As usual with me, there is a backstory...

A year and a half ago when I was in London, I visited the Filofax shop. Among the other wonderful goodies there, I fell in love with this Finchley tote.  I loved the wonderful soft leather, and especially the functionality of two bags in one. It's a handbag! That expands into a tote!  I reeeeeaaaaalllly wanted it. And, it was discontinued! EEEP!  But sadly, it was way out of my price range so I figured it would never be mine.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago finding it at $100 OFF and suddenly IT'S MINE!!  MWAA  HA HA HAAAAAA!

I ordered this tote from They are having an amazing Filofax closeout sale, click here to see. Right now there are only TWO of the red Finchley totes left, click here to nab one before it's too late!!  (Sorry for the blatant enabling! I'm not affiliated with Pens And Leather, I just can't resist a good enabling opportunity when I see one. ;D )

I'm not normally a red person, but I love the look and feel of this leather. It makes me want a red personal Finchley Filofax binder to match!!
