Help me find another purse/wallet like this one please

Name changed for this as it is potentially very outing.

I recently bought a purse/wallet that is also the right size to hold a passport as a gift for a friend who is going travelling. She opened it at the pub when other people were around and was delighted with it. Sadly another friend (who I am going away with with soon) was clearly a little hurt that I hadn’t thought of her too and now I feel bad. Her birthday is coming up so I’d like to buy one for her but it was in an end of line sale in a small gift shop and they can’t get any more.

Does anyone out there know where I can buy one of these? It’s faux leather and finished to look like a slightly worn antique book and just big enough to hold an EU passport + a few notes/ coins and credit cards. I am not too fussed about the colour.

That's lovely...I want one too! Any tags? What was the gift shop called?

What’s on the label inside?

There's some on amazon, can't see one as nice as the one you got though and also 9n Not on the Hifg Street I like this one
Thinking it might be time to replace my boring A5 concertina wallet 😁

on Not on the High Street, fat finger moment!

The tag says Book Club. When I searched it there were several links to it on Pinterest but none of the places tagged still stock it. ☹️

I can’t remember the name of the shop. It was in a back street in Brighton. I bought one for my friend and then liked it so much I went back the next day and bought the last one for myself.

I love how OP says “please do my work for me” and MN replies, “yeah, sure, why not” Grin

Thank you very much everyone. When I posted this I was hoping someone would say they had one of these they could sell me. I am touched that so many of you went to the trouble of researching it and posting links.

I am happy to say that I have ordered the eBay one (despite the massive P&P charge) so my sad friend will get a nice surprise on her birthday.

Thank you again everyone Flowers
