What's in my bag Feb/Mar 2010

Traveler's Press - Is "What's in My Bag" Really That Interesting?

Yes I switch gears quite often so in any given day you pick, chances are my bag's content can be entirely different. And that is interesting to me and perhaps to many people too. I decided to do "What's in my bag" posts once in a while but the last one was already August 2009, the Seminar Edition. So here you go, what's in my bag in Feb/Mar 2010.

Well click on the photo to go to the Flickr page and see more precise descriptions on the photo, previous gears are shown in this flickr set in case you want to explore more. I was traveling to Tokyo and Korea for business and these were all I needed:

Orobianco pen case, Pentel Tradio pen, Staedtler mechanical pencil, Faber Castell perfect pencil wrapped with black MT tape, Canon F1 50mm/f1.2 camera, Pilot capless fountain pen, mind.Depositor 3 with Maruman Mnemosyne, Shiny handy stamp, Kokuyo kadokeshi eraser, Monogram leather film holder, lip balm wrapped in masking tape, paper clips, book dart etc, USB memory customized with leather cover and closure, Midori brass numbered clips, Name card case with dart flight closure, Midori brass ruler, Midori Traveler's notebook, Passport cover, Midori brass pencil.

Midori/Designphil asked me to show what's in my bag back in Feb when they were planning a "TRAVELER's notebook & company" event in Aoyama. Eventually the photo and my tips to age brass items were included in the Traveler's Press which was being sold at 320 yen at the event. It looks like a very interesting event with limited edition brass pen with Traveler's Notebook logo, charms, wooden stand, calendar, postcards along side with vintage goods such as tin can, match boxes, etc. They even have a coffee bean partner creating a special Traveler's Notebook blend so customers can enjoy a cup of coffee with their notebook after the event. As usual, I wish I were there to experience everything.

    Kaela, except the camera, all else are not vintage but nostalgic. I love them so much I sleep with them :)

    everything in your bag is so elegant looking - nothing plasticy, or visually obnoxious. Lovely to look at!
