A change of plan so I had time to go to Ipswich and it happened to be so-called "Black Friday". I wanted to look round the charity shops for some longer length tunic tops for wearing at home because I'd been round the Stowmarket charity shops twice with no luck and I don't want to buy new.
Also wanted a few Christmas bits.
I wouldn't normally show a picture of all my shopping on the blog but as it was " Black Friday" I thought I'd treat you to shopping spree my way................. everything secondhand or cheap!
From Charity shops I found 3 tops for a total of £7
Green crepe paper for £0.25p
Tree Decorations for total of £2.50
Xmas Present for Jacob for £3
Another Christmas book for the grandchildren £0.49p
From Poundland Biscuits for Christmas Day £1
Gold Spray £1
Party Poppers £1
Aldi for Xmas dessert cocoa coated...Nuts £1.99
And finally, because I'm going to make an effort and put up a Christmas tree this year I got some new lights for £9.99.
I didn't see anyone fighting over reduced stuff, the town looked no busier than usual for a Friday morning. I didn't bother with any of the big department stores and went home via the packaging place for the red crepe paper (couldn't find any in town) and florists tape......................I have a craft project in mind that I happened upon on a Kirstie Allsop Handmade Christmas Programme.
If it works you'll see it here, if it fails you won't!
