Hi. I live in sunny west oz.
I was wondering if there are any other Aussies or west aussies that lurk/post in here?

Just letting you in on a quaint little thrift store which is managed by volunteers from the uniting church. It's in Rockingham ('bout 45km south of Perth), and can be found on Parkin St. It's so awsome and cheap. Lots of funky clothes from vintage and retro days and also paper patterns.

Hi there Masmasurf Smiley
I live in West Oz too, but down south in Bunbury.
I am into crochet at the moment and wondered if the store you mentioned has any cheap woolor cotton to work with? I'm always on the lookout for patterns or anything I can use to crochet with Smiley
Ciao for now

I'm another Perth person...delurking for the purposes of state solidarity. ^_^

Where you guys go for supplies (as opposed to thrift shopping)? My crafty friend and I tend to go to Spotlight or Lincraft, as I don't know of any other good craft suppliers.

Hello.  Just stumbled onto this web site.  It looks pretty good.  

I live in the northern suburbs of Perth.  Finding inexpensive and different craft materials is always a challenge.

What? No Queenslanders?  Um I live in a small town in the middle of no where so I order things on line... but when I get to the city I head straight to spotlight and such places as: crazy clarks, overflow and other bargin $2 shops!  I teach Home Ec so crafty ideas are always welcome.

Unfortunately I go to Spotlight for supplies, however I'm getting increasingly annoyed at there customer service. I have been over-charged on may occasions, I get defiance everytime I want my purchased goods packaged in one of my cloth bags (as opposed to one of there plastic bags) and they all seem unhappy.
Grrrrr
Does recommend any good online craft suppliers? Or mail order?

hi,
service and spotlight don't go together.  there is a charming craft shop in bassendean at 83 old perth rd called, imaginatively enough, bassendean fabric and craft.  there is also the big bubble (who knows?) in midland - 141b great eastern hwy (cnr bushby st) this has lots of odd things - worth a look.

Hi.

New(ish) knitter from Perth, WA.

I generally go to a pretty good store called Greenwood Craft. They have a good range, not too expensive and very helpful (unlike either Lincraft or Spotlight that I have found very unhelpful and occasionally vary between ignoring you and being snippy).

~If I'm buying yarn to knit a gift, it doesn't count as stash, right?

Hi,
I am from down south of W.A. as well and I just love going to WA Salvage, Crazy Clarks, Marcro's, Red Dot, 2 Buck Shop for my crafty bits and pieces.
Being from the country I only get to Bunbury every couple of months, so I stock up when I do get there. 
Even if I don't use any of the bits and pieces that I buy for 12 months, I still have them on hand when they are needed. 
Paper, cards, glues, beads, buttons, wooden items, embroidery threads, ribbons, fibre filling, dried flowers, wool, punchies, stickers, material.....you name it and I have it stashed away.
I think our Spotlight in Bunbury is great.....great service and always with a smile.............. ..maybe they just know me quite well Wink
Regards  kaatee
