  • Bargain of the day !!

    I just HAD to tell someone who will understand my excitement (hubby hasn't got a clue and thinks I'm totally mad !)

    I've just been in Laura Ashley and was looking at their remnants table and came across 2 metres of their seaside stripe fabric for 50p !!! YES, 50p !! I couldn't believe it - surely there must be some mistake I thought. So I took it up to the cash desk with a grubby little 50p in my hand and even the lady at the till was amazed !! It turns out the fabric was ex-display rather than end of roll and has a few tiny little marks in it where it had been stapled to something, so as it was classed as "used" it was only 50p !!

    - YAY !!!

    I shall be making regular trips to the Laura Ashley remnant table from now on !!

        Well done, that's excellent. Even if you don't use it you could sell it on Ebay and make a profit!!!!!!!

            Great find. 50p wouldn't cover a Sunday paper let alone Laura Ashley Fabric.

                  Great Stuff!

                  ...That's my kind of shopping!

                  I bought 4 metres of a Laura Ashley stripe from a car boot sale, it looked like an old fashioned boating blazer. I sold it on eBay for £25+.......chuffed with that!

                  Also got three 1.5 metres of Laura Ashley Sherbourne fabric in cream & lilac from a charity shop. That went for £46 on eBay.

                  Sadly, our Laura Ashley has closed down. It used to be inside the homabase store a few minutes walk from me, and was really handy.

                  Well done with your bargain Sarah...the Seaside stripe is gorgeous.
