Stall-holders be strong. Shoppers go mad.

Here is a great jumble of quotes from stall-holders about the goods they'll have for sale at Stash reHash on Sunday 8th November, 11am-2pm at the Scottish Society Hall in St Albans, Christchurch:

latest release designer fabrics for fashion, craft & quilting; vintage bag handles; handmade angora rabbit felt; vintage braids, trims and beads; fashion fabrics bought in Paris decades ago and never used; vintage Japanese silks and quilting cotton, Obi, Kimono, origami paper; vintage buttons and buckles; 100% cotton fabrics from leading international designers, including Amy Butler, Tania Wheelan, and David Walker; teddy bear fur, eyes and noses; merino sock yarn; yarn seconds; 80's clothing; disembowelled soft toys; home textiles; lots of fabric, some from the 50's; lace old and new; coffee sacks; environmentally friendly hand screen-printed Ink and Spindle fabrics; old sewing projects dating back to the 70's; lots of real bargains and give-aways. I just want it gone!; 100% NZ grown, spun and hand-dyed "worsted" weight single ply yarn; lots of embroidery thread (DMC); embroidery kits; I'll never use up this many retro and vintage tablecloths; new, gorgeous, fun, fresh and funky craft fabrics at great prices; vintage linens; funky fabric; my Nana was a shocking hoarder!

Phew! Ooohhh, the point of Stash reHash was for me to end up with less stuff but I think I'm going to find that very difficult. I need to be strong.
