Playing Shopkeeper

Only a few more days in the shop to go and my lovely friends, Leonie, Deirdre and Helen return from Houston. Can't wait to hear all about their adventures and see what yummy goodies they bring home.
So here's where I've spent the last two weeks!
Welcome to The Quilted Crow,
I've been amongst a great collection of antique furniture, bits and pieces,
the most gorgeous wools, including their own specialty of hand-dyed wools,

and gorgeous reproduction fabrcis,

It's been hard to resist spending big, I have bought a few pieces of fabric.

Playing shopkeeper has been an experience, it's a world away from my normal day job but I've really enjoyed it and I'm so pleased the girls felt comfortable with me looking after their baby.

So that's a small glimpse of the shop, so if ever you're in Hobart pop in and say hello and if not you can always shop online.

Jo, How will you ever go back to your real job after all that ???

Amanda said...

What fun you must have had 'playing shop', though I'm sure it's been lots of hard work. I expect you've picked up loads of great ideas too.

Wow Jo! It sure is a beautiful shop and I wish I lived closer so I could pay a visit for real! Online shops are great, but its just so good to be among the fabrics and treasures!

I'm glad you enjoyed your new job!

Hugs! Vikki xo

One of my favourite shops ever, I loved it when they were on the East side as well! And so welcoming. How lucky are you to be there

Can I come over to play with you?

Mmmmmm, stroking fabrics all day long...that must have been so difficult, such a tedious and boring job.
Gosh I'm jealous. ;-)
