So sadly one of my all time favourite fabric stores Arthur Toye is closing down.
A lot of my youth was spent meandering through this store…
But the good news was everything store wide was half price, so a special trip into Wellington CBD was needed!
As you can see lots of pretty things were bought and even though everything was half price … I won’t tell you how much I really spent!
While in town I couldn’t pass up popping into some of my favourite Op-shops
(also known as Thrift Stores in much of the northern hemisphere)
In one lovely Op-shop I scored this awesome gem!
$10 = one black silk dress, no altering required!
I also scored me some super cheap items to attempt to refashion, you will see those at a later date (maybe)!
Now off to sew some of those new fabrics into a super new product I’m working on!
