Doesn't that sight just make you want to create something beautiful? As most of you know I love charity shops, I love searching out the wee gems and I love knowing what you're buying is doing good not harm to our world. A big factor though, lets be honest is the money saving opportunities!
I'd been thinking I needed some good fabric scissors for a while and this pair was 50p, super sharp and will last forever because they are made so well (unlike the £16 plastic handled ones I saw in the haberdashery...) The spools of cotton were 5p each (I got 10) and the wool which I'll be using to refine my new found embroidering skills was £1.99, I'm so chuffed and will definitely be heading up to my craft room tomorrow to have a good sort out and do some of the crafty projects I've been meaning to get around to :)
I also managed to bag myself ANOTHER jamie oliver book! One of his new '30 min meals' books for £1.99 (RRP £26) So all in all it was an awesome and inexpensive trip to town.
Don't you love it when inspiration comes along?
