cassette but this was an show offer of £41.50 with 5 cassettes..which
retail from £5.95 each..its only been in the country 8wks I was told..

Flippin'eck Christine - no wonder there was nothing left at closing time!! That trimmer looks fantastic - didn't spot that one!! When I added everything up at home, I couldn't believe how such a small amount of stash had cost so much cash!! Great day though - thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was fab. to meet up with you and the girls. Love and hugs, Sylvia xxx

Mmmmm you kept that one quiet Christine! The crafty edger looks a fabulous new toy, I didn't even see them...must remember to clean my specs next time I go shopping!

I didn't buy that much myself but my hubbly ordered me a bigshot pro...proper spoiled I was!

Lovely to meet you and the other ladies.

Hugs Elaine xx

When I saw the title of your post, I had to come over and have a look at what you'd bought. You lucky girl. I'm so jealous. I wish I lived 'up north' so I could've gone too. I'll have to visit my out-laws about this time next year as they live in Yorkshire, though my hubby says that where they actually live is still not that close!! (Darn!) Love your stash. Can't wait to see you great creations with it all. Annette xx
