As you might know, I’ve always been big on thrifting!
So as a fellow crafter I know just how expensive craft supplies can be brand new, especially in places such as “Hobby Craft” in the UK. A pack of buttons could cost you £4! Now that to me is crazy!
So where better to look than thrift shops. Just because it’s secondhand, doesn’t mean it’s “ewww”. You can find a lot of unused brand new craft supplies, all you have to do is dig deep!
My recent score on sewing supplies!
I was looking through a basket of stuff only to find a huge stash of brand new zips and for 20p each I wasn’t going to moan haha. Thrifting for craft supplies can make a huge difference in your expenses. Instead of buying the exact same zips for around £5 I managed to get all of the above whilst saving a couple of pounds.
From an awesome stash of sewing yarn, toggles, a vintage sewing cushion to purple stars a successful trip indeed.
