I’ve been anxious to visit Walthamstow Market after reading Karen’s posts (here and here) about the great sewing finds it has to offer. My friend recently moved to the area so I invited myself (cheeky, I know) over to check out her new place and the market. Luckily for me she didn’t mind showing me around and being patient as I ogled over all the great stuff I saw.
Fabric is the last thing I need (…for now) but I had to snatch up this blue eyelet at £1 a meter.
I own quite a bit of fabric but I’ve found I don’t have enough notions. When I was making my sailboat skirt I had to nip out for a zip. I kept my eye out for some and bought these, 20 for 50P!
So many great stalls for haberdashery. I felt like an overexcited puppy. Haberdashery galore!
1. 30 Snaps, 50P
2. 5M of lace, 50P. (Hoping to use these for some cute undies)
3. 4M of lace, £2.00 (My first purchase at the beginning of the market. Didn’t know there cheaper options to come!)
4. 7M of stripey cotton twill, 50P
5. 30M Bias Binding, £2.35
6. 30M Bias Binding, £2.35
7, 30M Bias Binding, £2.35
8. 25M Bias Binding, £1.00
9. 10M navy lace, £1.00
10. 5M of elastic, 50P
11. 6 buttons, 40P
12. 35 buttons, 30P
All in all I think I did pretty well for myself. I walked away with a ton of notions and spent less than £20. Yowsers. Thanks for posting about Walthamstow Market, Karen. Great market, great finds.
