I had intended yesterday to go to Paddington's Mathilda's Markets http://mathildasmarket.blogspot.com/ with my daughter, but my husband decided to work instead. This meant I would have been taking my son who is nearly 5 and that would have been impossible. So my daughter and I went to Macarthur Square instead when my husband got home and he took my son with him
From Lincraft: One pack of Lincraft Fat Quarters, One Dracula Mask, 4 Czech Glass Beads, One Paper Punch. All 30% off. No wool. Very surprising, I know.
From Big W: After Lincraft closed (yes, we were there from about 2.00 pm to close) 2 metres of black fabric, 3 reels of black polycotton thread and red ribbon.
From Smiggle: Too many silly things to mention.
From Borders Bookstore: Really Wild Tea Cosies by Loani Prior. Great book. Very funny.
Macarthur Square is about half an hour on the train from where I live, but well worth the journey. The shopping centre is LARGE, neat and clean and as my friend Sharon has noted to me previously, the prices are often under what you would pay in shopping centres closer to home.
At Borders Bookstore, they were having a store renewal sale and I also got three Paperchase Address Books (normally $12.99 each) and two Paperchase spotty pencilcases (normally $8.99) for $10 for the lot. Bargain.
