Cath Kidston Ticket Holder
Advantages: Price. Design. Convenient. Size. Well made. Coated.
Disadvantages: Tickets hard to continually take in and out.
I am a big fan of Cath Kidston and I have a number of products in the Cath Kidston range. I love the fact that Cath Kidston products are contemporary and yet traditional in design - and that the patterns are generally just really pretty. I was given the Cath Kidston Ticket Holder as present from a friend. I don't know what she paid for it, but I currently see it is available from the Cath Kidston website (www.cathkidston.co.uk) for £6.00. To be honest, I was surprised it was so low in price because Cath Kidston products do tend to be quite overpriced - and so this ticket holder would be good for anyone who wants a Cath Kidston product but doesn't have loads of money to spare. I think £6.00 is a fair price.
The ticket holder comes in a variety of different designs, but the one I have is the Victoria Rose pattern. I particularly like this design because it's one of the most recognisable Cath Kidston designs - and it's also one of the most attractive (in my opinion!). This design is navy blue with little pink, red and blue roses scattered on it in a random order.
It looks like a little purse and consists of three sections that are folded over in order to create a kind of mini folder. Each section is made up of plastic slips which mean that tickets can be placed inside it and they can be on view. They are credit card size and so they are suitable for most tickets which you would use on a daily basis. In one holder I have my Oyster card, in another I have my driving license, and in the final one I have my security card for work. The cards do fit in quite snugly and so it's a tight fit and so it's not always that easy to remove the tickets front the holder if you need to remove it quickly. It is for this reason that I only tend to put in tickets which don't need to be taken in and out all of the time. With the Oyster card and my security card, I can scan the cards over the reader without taking the card out of the holder and so this makes it convenient for me.
The card holder feels well made and I've had it about a year and it still looks good as new. It hasn't frayed and all of the stitching is still intact - and so it feels like it's built to last. It is coated and so this makes it splash proof and it can also be wiped over with just a damp cloth. I like that it's small enough to fit inside a small pocket and so this means that it's easy enough to get to in a hurry when needed.
Overall, I think the Cath Kidston Ticket Holder is a nice little product that is not completely necessary, but it can be convenient to have somewhere to put tickets so that they're easy to find when you need them.
Summary: Unnceccesary but can be convenient.
