I went to the store today and wanted to buy me a new limegreen Safari (I gave my old one away to someone) and I couldn't find them... hmm, strange, 2 weeks ago I saw MANY limegree Safaris there, maybe 20-30 of them, they could't sell them all in 2 weeks!?! I went to another store (biggest stores in the city) and the same story there o_O' they also had many limegreen Safaris few weeks ago... I went to other stores and there was no limegreen Safari in the whole city...

Then I remembered eureka.gif Oh yeah, it's a limited edition model for the year 2008!

I asked the owner of one small store and he said he gave all of them back to the LAMY salesman, and everybody else probably did the same! I didn't ask why, I was too shocked... ^^ ...

Why!?! I know some stores where I still can find the baby-blue ones with the red clip, they are still everywhere here... last month I even saw the orange Safari Flame in a display window of a small shop and bought it for just 16 Euros! It's really strange that the limegreen Safari disappeared overnight... get them while you still can!

But there are probably many limegreens out there on the net, no problem to get it from e-bay or other places...

I miss that color... sleep.gif

I love my lime coloured Safari! I might just have to go and buy another one before they disappear. I did notice they had vanished from The Writing Desk! sad.gif

Aw, that's a shame. I knew they were limited edition, but I didn't know that when I bought mine. I love that color...

I didn't even realize lime was LE. I guess it makes an even better gift to have received now!

Can't believe my luck. My lime Lamy was my inked choice for today! Considering the newby that I am, it's amazing that I even have this "limited edition" and much loved pen. Must admit that it is one of my favs.

And although his isn't the lowest price (by $1.27), he has a great selection of other pens too (easy to pick another to go along with your purchase, to ride along on the same shipping price), plus excellent customer service. smile.gif

In fact, wouldn't this Retro 51 ($6) go well with the Lime Safari?

More than that, I've known for some time what it will be cool.gif . However, Paperworld is only a couple weeks away when I'm sure the official announcement will be made. Availability is usually from the Spring onwards.
