I've done lots of shopping this last week.. whenever we head up to visit my grandparents there is a standard list of places to visit:
* The second hand bookshop
* Rivers Clearance store
* Good Sammy's (thrift store)
* Spotlight (I know this sounds weird considering there are two Spotlight stores within a 30 minute drive of my house, but it's just what I do!)
This trip Mum and I added the local quilting store, farmers' market and the regional patchwork & quilting exhibition to our list as well. And I must say that we've had a very "successful" trip so far.. we head home tomorrow and we've actually managed to cross almost everything off our list! While I haven't specifically taken photos of the other things I've purchased, I found a top & 2 pair of pants at Katies, 2 pair of sandals & 2 shirts for my husband at Rivers, a Fred Bare pinafore and a pair of Clarks shoes for Blossom at Good Sammy's and we managed to trade 2 and a half bags of our own books in at the bookstore ($100 instore credit) for a bag of new books with no extra to pay! Woohoo!
But I *will* share with you my fabric/sewing related purchases with you:
|Spotlight shopping trip #1 (Thursday)|
|Have I mentioned I have a thing for Holly fabric?|
|Pillowcase dress & pants pattern & fabric|
|Another apron pattern - I plan to make design B|
|$6.95 - bargain!|
And last but not least I found this cute Belle cross stitch pack for $3 so I thought I might do it up for Blossom to hang in her new bedroom.
I'll post about today's shopping trip later - right now I have to run off to buy wine and go to a seafood BBQ at my Aunt's house! Yummo!
