Hey I couldn't wait to get home and post this!
Today I went to Alexandria
(in Sydney) to Ron Chudy's Beadhouse and Castingwww.beadhouse.com.au
for all you jewelry supplies at quite reasonable prices too!
Honestly you could spend all day in there and not see everything!
After I spent a fourtune in there I went down the road and round the bend and back around the bend and then back down the road and round the bloody twist! Country girl in the city on her own without a street directory, need say no more!
Anyway I went to Marrickville
, however you spell it, to Hut 8, 142 Addison road
. They have all sorts of things waiting to be recycled into something worthy of craftster! Heaps of different materials, paper, wood, furniture, odds and ends and bits and pieces. For dirt cheap prices! Today I got myself some cute little velvet boxes, a box of 12 crochet needles and a rather large handful of metal stampings all for $4.50 The metal things are sooooooooo cool! Perfect for Pirate jewelry. Will post a pic when I clean them up.
If you can get to Marrickville you gotta check this place out! There is so much crafty potential in there, and it's great recycling too!
and there is supposed to be markets there every Sunday too.
