So I couldn’t wait to share my score at Walmart on Friday! I found 4 Markings journals for just under $20! Markings by C.R. Gibson is a US manufacturer that I was previously unfamiliar with. These journals are covered in an “Italian leatherette” which feels like suede. I will probably keep the large one for myself but the little ones will end up in Christmas stockings.

cover large aqua journal

The large aqua journal measures 7.25 x 10 inches.

inside front cover large journal

Nice inside cover pages.

ruled pages large journal

Ruled pages with matching ribbon marker. Elegant flourishes on each page.

trio of journals

The smaller journals measure 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Great colours and design.

inside small journal

Pretty standard on the inside. Plain ruled pages with no flourishes. But at $3 each I think the quality is better than average for this price range.
