I love Hobbycraft
At the beginning of this week I had planned to go to the K&S show in Ally Pally, but by yesterday my desire to spend £22 on the train and £10 to get in was definitely waning. So, not to be outdone I went to Hobbycraft in Southampton instead. What a treat! loads of people free aisles with lots of wonderful scrummy stuff to choose from and I hadn’t had to pay an entrance fee.
I took the photos of my work on the rusty gun doors (on my post ‘a grand day out’) and had a great time cruising up and down the aisles picking out the threads and paint etc. without getting sidetracked and seduced by things I didn’t need. I also bought the 3 canvases for my planned triptych for £19 in a set of 3, which I thought wasn’t bad for 16”x16”, deep sided.
I finished off my purchases with 2 delightful little 3D frames for £5.99 each, which will be used for our Christmas exhibition:info @ www.sharonoyoung.co.uk
I don’t think the prices were exceptionally cheap, this little bundle cost me £60, but it was lovely to have everything under one roof and not have to pay an admission fee.
