Kirsty's Crafty finds...

I know, i know - this is a CRAFT blog and i did promise myself it would only be crafting!
But... one or two people commented on some of my wooden boxes that i use to store craft items in. Then, when i told them, "I found that at the local tip for £2" some people felt sickly jealous (x) and a little curious...
It made me suddenly photograph some of my Crafty TIP finds.
We aren't supposed to call it the TIP anymore, it is the 'Local Recycling Centre' (don't you know)


This is the photo that started it... It has a top layer that you take out to reveal more little sections underneath. I haggled the Tip Man from £5 to £3 - i think he was swindling me x

A Paddington Bear suitcase that i use, at times, for Craft Fair displays or to sit around the house - £2.00 and a lovely wooden box on top with treasure in (a Tip find but a gift from the man to me)...



The Button Badger - a FIND! This will have a complete future BLOG post of it's own. FOUND in a warehouse, not the Tip - but i did pay to have it re-conditioned...

This old Church Pew for the Kitchen - waiting for The Man to chop it down to a smaller size. I have been waiting for 12 months now. I could tackle it myself but WoodWork isn't my thing really... (£5.00)
I love these - old Printers Trays. I have a few in the Art Room to hold ribbons and Inks and Stamps and Beads, but this one is ready to hang on the wall for crafty displays... (£2.00)


Ye Olde Park Bench for the garden... (£5.00)LOVE this! An old school desk with double lift up lids and ink wells. (£3.00) This is for My daughter really but i use it in the evenings as a craft table in front of the tele and also to measure and cut felt because it is 1metre long!


The JOYS of crafty TIP finds x There are many more in our house, but that will do for now! x

I wish we had rubbish like the UK :-). Our Thrift Shops (Charity Shops) usually have piles of junky pieces that fall apart way to easily. I luff all of your goodies though!

OMG - what time does my local tip (sorry - recycling centre) open ?? I'll be waiting at the gates !

ah wow, someone just like me!! we have a pew just like yours in our hall way. I also found a tp slide in our local RC for £2 - and our neighbour wanted one, and had to pay £150 for a new one - she was pig sick (ha ha)!!! I've found a shelving unit for my crafty room (£3), but I find they are a bit pricey up there sometimes!!! Maybe I should put some pics on my blog!!!
