Ally Pally & Bootsale Bargains

So still no crafting done! Beginning to get serious withdrawl symptons now but have had a busy weekend.
On Saturday I went to Ally Pally with the intention of not spending much money........that wasn't quite what happened though! I met with good friends under the palm tree at 12 noon and caught up on news then headed back in. Found a few items that I just had to have (hehe) and watched some demo's by some of my favorite inspiring stores/people. There was Dyan from Art from the Heart , The Artistic Stamper and Lin from LB Crafts. Now have some new ideas to try.

Then on Sunday we went bargain hunting at a local car boot sale. I did quite well. Managed to pick up a selection of miniature bottles for just 50p. Then found a stall selling old books at 5 for a £1. Ideal for taking apart to use the pages and for altering. Then I found my most fav bargain of the day....a vintage typewriter for only £2! This is now half dismantled .....and all over my kitchen worktop! Have ideas rolling round my head already but they are gonna have to stay there for a while as have busy working week ahead of me.......oh well.
