What’s better than discount prices on home goods at a garage sale? Discount prices on craft supplies at an arts & crafts garage sale! I know, mind blown.
Over the weekend I visited Handcraft Studio School for their Craft & Art Supply Garage Sale. Studio instructors and collective members brought out their goods for an afternoon of rummaging delight. There were vintage books, unique buttons, colorful fabrics, and a whole lot of other random and unusual finds.
These punches were very pleasing. My crafty friend and I spent a few minutes here testing out our favorites, and then purchasing them. I got a tree, just in time for Christmas…in ten months. Ha!
Looking through the vintage findings selection trying to come up with a craft project to justify a purchase was just as fun as actually picking something out and buying it.
I recently turned my walk-in closet into a craft “room” and have been gradually sorting and cleaning out my craft explosion. Going to one of these events is dangerous when you’re mid-sort! I did a good job, though. I only did $7 worth of damage. And check out my finds: a tree punch, seven mini canvas tote bags (Plus bonus ribbon holding the bags together! Yes, crafter brain says I can use it!), and 40 Paper Source brand envelopes in reds and greens (That’s 75% off retail!).
We were pleased with our finds, so we celebrated by gallivanting amongst the flowers and with a footoshoot…and pizza.
I can’t wait for another fun event at this studio. Perhaps I’ll get to take a class with them soon. In the meantime, let’s swoon over this wall of goodies.
