Shattered but had a Lovely day at Ally Pally...
Well we set off at 7am yesterday morning, I picked Liz and Beryl up en-route and off we headed to London for our second visit of the year to Ally Pally. They'd moved into the Great Hall this time so you had so much more room to move around and lots more places to sit and chill as well. I got everything on my list and a few extra bits. There were bargins to be had but you had to look and compare prices. By the time we left at 5pm my car boot and part of the back seat were full of all of our goodies. My best buy of the day was some thin Jute string. Liz and I went halves on it though we did laugh and wonder whether we needed a reel each, look at the photo! I got it from the Ludiec stand for only £5.50............I couldn't believe how cheap it was and had to look twice at the price. The other photo is of my purchases. Tomorrow I hope to have a little play with some of the new stamps and dies. The next Craft Show I'll visit will be The Suffolk Papercraft Show in Bury St Edmunds on 4th November.
