Shop log and tips: Craft supplies various stores
Let me start with one of my favorite stores, Action. On the Facebook page of Action fans I saw a message that Decotime handlettering books have started selling for € 1.99. Unfortunately I was too late and they only had it book “Illustration”. I just leafed through this book and decided to buy it. My dear mother looked at 2 other Action branches, but unfortunately there were no hand lettering books for sale anymore. Hopefully they come back in soon.
The book contains all kinds of small assignments to complete. I'm really looking forward to getting started :-).
Furthermore, I bought this one two paper cubes for €0.59 per Unit. One with watercolor backgrounds and the other contains pastel backgrounds for making cards.
This DIY package I couldn't pass up making your own photo frame using mosaic. I'm actually just very curious how it works ;-). The box cost € 2,49.
Finally I bought another one gray ball with medium yarn. This cost € 0,89. I held back ;-).
I also recently visited Pipoos. There I was helped by a very helpful salesperson :-). I bought two different scoops Rico Creative Bubble yarn for €3.25 per bulb. This yarn is special, because it is a hard hairy thread, you can crochet sponges with it. Great for the bath, shower or kitchen. Now to find a nice pattern. Do you have an idea?
There is also a So-Low in our city, definitely worth a visit for craft supplies. I actually think the rest is more junk. I bought 3 glass bottles (€ 1.00)I couldn't pass this one up, it's so cute. I don't really know what I'm going to do with it yet. The label stickers and cork stickers were just both € 0,25.
I actually only bought one stamp at Xenos. This was in the clearance corner. The stamp only cost € 0,18. I will use this stamp on blank labels. Tip: so come and visit the Xenos and take a look at the clearance corner.
Finally, some small purchases I made on AliExpress. I bought a lot for crocheting stitch markers. Some people lose socks, here in the house there is a black hole for stitch markers that keep disappearing... The bag with 100 pieces cost € 1,05.
I recently bought plastic darning needles on AliExpress. Until a colleague told me that these are also made of metal... So handy, because the plastic darning needles kept breaking on me. This set of darning needles cost € 0,61.
And the last purchase of this shopping log is a bag of cute ones wooden buttons with “Handmade with love” on them. I'm going to attach this to my crocheted animals :-). The bag of 100 pieces cost € 1,21. I bought the small version size S.
Do you have any tips for shops with nice craft supplies?
