Made With Pride

My favourite little craft shop "Made With Pride" is closing down :-( Their landlord has upped their rent so they decided it is time to retire. I'm going to miss them.

This shop stocks all those little knick-knack bits and pieces that you just can't get anywhere else. It's been so convenient to visit during my lunch break to get that one DMC thread I need for a project. This week they've reduced all their stock by 50% so today I bought some of those DMC threads I don't have, some wire hangers, freezer paper, magnetic clasps for bags, cord and some button covering kits. I'm heading back tomorrow to go through the fabrics and everything else.

So if you live in Southern Tasmania I'd get in quick because they're clearing the lot and they must be out before the end of November!

How sad that it's closing down - it always seems to be the 'little guys' that loose out in times like now !...Luv AJ

It´s so sad when those small personal stores disappers. Our little scrapbooking store, one of the few stores here by me, is moving in 10 days, to a village too far...

that is such a shame - it seems that the best stores end up having to close - mostly due to greedy landlords!!!
