    Went to l the charity shop down the road, i wanted to look for cookbooks but none caught my eye.

    What I did come out with was two carrier bags of yarn for £5, all very good quality - entire balls of drops alpaca silk, sublime lace merino, a bunch more random balls of either laceweight or 4ply in what seems to be wool or drops alpaca, and 6 large balls of nice sock yarn. Fiver, said the nice lady at the till! Im thrilled. 
    Sounds like you got some really lovely wool!  And thoughts as to what you will make with it yet?  I bought three bags of mixed yarns from a chazza recently and so far have made an aran jumper, an aran bobble hat, a brown and cream bobble hat and a long fringed scarf in mohair.  Have loads left but have run out of ideas now!

    Spotted another pricy 'bargain' yesterday, this time in the normally really cheap community chazza.  Twas a pair of b/n ankle boots by either Ted Baker or Kurt Geiger, (can't remember).  Black leather dotted with small coloured sparkly stones all over and priced at £75....think they said original price around the £200 mark  :o  I do hope this isn't indicative of future trends in chazza prices??!!
