We will have a fresh batch on “sale” soon. Just sorting out the newly arrived stocks so I am certain I will find more “rejects”.

Here are some Moleskine Notebooks that won’t be posted for selling as sealed/new on the website due to some minor issues. These are unused and originally overstocks. However, due to transit some edges might have bumps & very minor scratches (I will indicate if there’s anything major). These are probably reject as gifts. If you intend to use it immediately then they make great buys because of the bargain prices. Again, DEFINITELY NOT IN BRAND NEW CONDITION. NO REFUNDS. We also do not sell nor will attempt to misrepresent actual condition. These are also inspected for major flaws.
