A local tailors shop recently closed down and look what I found in a skip round the corner :) here are some facebook posts about my overwhelming joy...
attempt at civilised habits was utterly void today. After a pleasant few hours in starbucks reading the paper and sipping overpriced foam, i proceeded to revert back to my skip-rat habits and dived into a skip right outside to dig out a large amount of rather damp and smelly fabric offcuts. The result of which meansthat i will spend the rest of the summer in some rather nice and expensive looking tweed skirts :)
the wonder skip has yet again provided! a HUGE hall of scraps, half a dozen sample books and 5 bolts of cloth with 3+ meters on a piece. i'm a happy little skip-rat :)
we estimated that the amount of fabric pulled out is worth around 200+ quid - result!
