So yesterday I single handedly stimulated the economy in the Burnley charity shops :) I went with specific things in mind (jumpers to felt) and the charity shop gods listened to me!
I managed to get 8 jumpers and then I found these beauties in the last shop I went in.
Two pure new wool blankets!! The colours haven't come out correctly in the photographs but the bottom one is a light green and the top is a pale yellow one.
And just look at the label!!!
I also got a bit of fabric!
And some books. All of the above will be used for 'Swirlyarts'. I did look hard but only found one thing for me - but they are fabulous!
Some gold shoes!!! I had a pair of gold ballet shoes that I got at a jumble sale a few years ago but they died recently so I was thrilled to find these beauties! I was going to cut the straps off but once I tied them on I was quite taken by them. What do you think? I must admit they will get me some stares but so do my pink sparkly shoes and bright tights so I'm not going to lose much sleep about it!
