Thrifty Sisters…

14 Apr

Today us doolallytat girls had a day of bargain hunting and craftiness.

First we stopped of at a local furniture and bric-a-brac shop to have a rummage for some pretty bits and pieces to up-cycle into some gorgeous treasures.

Unfortunately there was not much to be found but as all you fellow treasure hunters will know sometimes this is just the way the bargain cookie crumbles!

We did however find these two beauties:


We had been looking out for these decanter tags for awhile and I was super excited to find 2 in such great condition.

I am looking to make them into necklaces so I will post some pictures once they are made.

After our rummage we headed to The Range anybody who has been to one off these stores will know they have a pretty good craft section and we love just having a wander around gossiping and stocking up on general bits and bobs.

I picked up a wooden box which I am looking to paint and doll up into a fab piece that if all goes to plan I will feature at our next craft fair.

All in all it was a pretty successful day and we should hopefully have lots of pictures to share when our treasures and crafts are ready to display.

        Sailor Jerry! But I’m guessing they don’t make that one, haha! Maybe rum? Or port? ❤
