So the big news of the week was the announcement from Japan of the new Olive Edition of the Traveler’s Notebook!
As a retailer, we’d been sent some information about this before, but of course we had to keep our lids on until it was officially announced, and I can’t wait. Due to arrive close to the end of March or beginning of April.
As a general life rule, I’ve been trying to hold off on accumulating more than I can reasonably use at a time, but this is so completely in my colour palette of browns and warm and earthy greens. And it may even match a new Safari pen coming out! Who knows!
It’s going to be a limited edition, like the Pan Am Blue Traveler’s Notebook from two years ago – once it’s gone, it’s gone. We’ve ordered a nice solid amount, as you know we like to stock up on these limited edition things to try and avoid any disappointment. We still get questions about the Pan Am edition, so if you were one of the lucky folks that got one a few years ago, hold it close to your heart (or else maybe consider this olive edition!).
There are not going to be as many accessories available as with the Pan Am, no zipper pocket, no stickers, but there will be a matching ballpoint pen and a matching pen clip in the olive green colour, which we will also be carrying.
As of this time, we are not going to do a pre-order on it, as quantities are limited and may come staggered over the next few months. Our Traveler’s Notebook distributor has given us some good assurance, but because there are never any guarantees – we don’t want to over-sell, and then have any one go short on this limited edition.
Once we get a firm number on exactly how many we can expect, we may open it up to pre-order, so you don’t have to worry about rushing to it the second we get stock and put it up on the website.
Your best bet right now is to sign up for an in-stock notification, which will email you when we get our stock in, or if we open it up to a pre-order. We’ll certainly be announcing when we get it in, so stay tuned to the website and our social media as well.
