Moleskine Quick Sale 2011

Moleskine Assorted

First-come, First-served. EMAIL is the only way to order. No text messaging and please do not leave order-related comments, they won’t count. Please send all order-related emails to: support(at)avalon.ph. You can also send a direct email here. Thank you.

Some items here are UNWRAPPED, some have been in storage for a while for personal use. Being unwrapped, some might have minor to noticeable bumps or dust spotting that can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Please take this into consideration before you buy. We DO NOT sell junk. If there are flaws it will be mentioned. Most of the visible flaws are those that will eventually show up after using your Moleskine for 2-4 weeks.

We cannot allow returns/exchange or refunds except of course in exceptional cases. You have to agree to this before purchasing. Those who are new or never bought from Avalon.ph before, you have to accept that as one of the terms for this sale. For those who bought from us before, you know how we work in making sure every customer is satisfied.

We will be redundant in describing the stocks to avoid mistakes when you read it. Still, read it carefully. The list isn’t organized in the most easy-to-read manner so please pay attention.

Items are complete or missing non-essential inserts (the Moleskine history sheet). It will be mentioned if missing items are essential (like in the case of Moleskine City, the stickers). Most unwrapped items missing the wrap-around band. As far as I know except for 2 (which I described below), all of the pages clean and no ink marks. Remember, these are journals that will probably be in the same condition as described if you use them for 1-4 weeks. In essence, the more abused a Moleskine look, the more enamoring it gets (at least for some Moleskine lovers that I know).

PAYMENT: Shipping only. As fast as possible. Please do not order if you are planning to pay after 5 days. Be fair to other buyers when you email me. Play nice.

ORDERING: Since some items are similar, include the CODE indicated after each title in your order email. Ordering tips: Don’t hesitate to email me just the CODE to earn the right to buy it as soon as you read it. Just make sure that you will not change your mind.

Images: They are for reference only. May or may not be actual item.

I may miss something but everything is in the spirit of good faith and best practice. Happy browsing!

==================

Moleskine Pocket Squared (Code: SQP017). Price: PhP300.00 – unwrapped, ONE PAGE has been written “Mole Mole” in black ink, taking up a 5×8 square space on that page. Probably on the 16th page. Everything else looks clean and tight.

Moleskine Pocket Squared (Code: SQP077). Price: P250.00 – unwrapped, clean HOWEVER strap is loose, not broken but just loose. You probably have to knot it to tighten it up again. Not recommend for those who are OC about the Moleskine strap. Very cheap.

Moleskine LARGE Classic Squared (Code: SQL050). Price: PhP400.00 – unwrapped, some minor dust spots, some bumps and scratches more than your average ‘unwrapped’ new Moleskine, 1 noticeable scratch on cover, and around 3 minor ones. Great copy if you’ll use it immediately. My only concern is that the ‘feel’ of the strap isn’t as tight as your usual unused Moleskine. Shouldn’t be serious.

Moleskine LARGE Classic Squared (Code: SQL051). Price: PhP460.00 – wrapped, however some blade cut on back cover, around 3 short ones, depthness of cut is ok, not exposing inner oilcloth. Excellent bargain.

Moleskine LARGE Classic Squared (Code: SQL059). Price: PhP490.00 – unwrapped, same as 051 except this have the absence of scratches and strap tight. Only issue are minor dust spots that can be cleaned if you want to. Wrap around band included.

=================

Other Large Moleskines:

Moleskine Classic LARGE Sketchbook (Code: SKL030). Price: P500.00 – wrapped, major flaw is an obvious BLADE CUT across diagonally the back cover that penetrated through the outer skin of the oilcloth only. Cut is light, very clean and straight. Again, the depth of the cut isn’t too deep as exposing the inner skin of the oilcloth. Book still wrapped and this is the only flaw. For PhP500.00 this is definitely a good buy. (Note: just recently run out of Large Sketchbook again).

Moleskine Classic LARGE Sketchbook (Code: SKL099). Price: P500.00 – unwrapped, no wrap-around band. Very light bump on back cover, looks good. No blade cuts.
