It is a showcase for environmentally-friendly products with an emphasis on the three 'REs': REcycled, REpurposed and REmade.
|I ♥ these cardboard shelves!|
I bought two beautiful textile brooches, a clever little sewing kit disguised as a Ration Book and some lavender in a can. The purchase I was most pleased with was a set of reusable bread bags.
We bake bread most days (after discovering the One Minute Ciabatta recipe), and how to store it is a conundrum. These bags are exactly what I've been looking for (and, if like me you give loaves as presents, they could double as a gift bag).
Cloth Magazine - I've not seen it before and was very impressed with the easy-to-follow advice on sewing and sewing machine techniques.
Sign up to ReMade: Frugal Cool's fortnightly update on local sustainability and design. I did and I've learned about all sorts of local happenings that might otherwise have passed me by.
After saying goodbye to Nicky I bought some Wawel chocolate from the Polish shop, had a quick look round the Debra charity shop (purchases=one sparkly pink party dress - £2.70 and a Cath Kidston mug - £1) and then went to the Fisherrow Centre.
I have renewed my membership at Borders Scrapstore for a further 3 years. It's a great resource which is always looking for paperstock, textiles and just about anything that could be used for arts and crafts. I bought some fabric in lovely autumnal colours, some paint and other bits and bobs.
It is Be Bothered Week - my act of botheredness was to send my ink cartridges back to InkNToner to raise £ for Caring or Kids.
