What's on My Desk Wednesday - Bargains from HobbyCraft

My mate Lisa’s  enthusiasm is contagious, while I was at work the other day she was texting me with all her HobbyCraft bargains, how cruel was that?  I had to wait till Friday when I finished early to see if she had left me anything ……. !
HobbyCrafts Sale Item - Button plugs
I thought these wooden plugs would be good on the drawers of my Tesco Advent House.
My only criticism of HobbyCraft is that they put a lot of bargains in very large “bargain bin boxes” – I could rummage, but they were so deep and full that I was frustrated that I might miss out on something fantastic, and I am not really sure that the assistants would have been pleased if I had hoisted a lot of stuff out and put it all over the floor enabling me to delve deeper
HobbyCrafts Sale Item - Baby Stickers HobbyCrafts Sale Item- Boy and Girl Felt Ribbons
Lisa got these bargains too.  I wanted the stickers (£1.99 reduced to 99p) when I first saw them, but I ermed and ahhed at the price, but reduced to 99p I snapped them up.  The ribbon I just loved when I saw Lisa’s and I managed to get a reel of pink and two of red (89p 2m reel).
HobbyCraft sale item - Making Memories Glitter Letters HobbyCrafts Sale Item - Making Memories
The Making Memories alphabet glitter die cuts (£3.49p reduced to 99p) will come in very useful for personalised cards and  I plan to use the Making Memories School Packing Tapes (£3.99 down to 99p, they were reduced again after labelling) for “End of Term Thank You” and “First Day at School” cards.
HobbyCraft Sale Item - Making Memories- Metal Words HobbyCraft Sale Item - Pull Bow Ribbon
I have also picked up the metal words up many times when  shopping in HobbyCraft, but six words for £3.49 seemed expensive, £1.99 is a much better price!  The ribbon, all 25m of it, seemed a bargain too, but perhaps it was a shopping faux pas as it is “pulling ribbon” it should make cute rosette type bows, but I don’t have a clue how you do it!!!!
HobbyCraft Sale Item - Favor Bags HobbyCrafts Sale Item with heart shaped chocolates
Ten tassel favour bags (£4.99 reduced to £2.99) is another good bargain, it works out at 29p a bag ….. BRILLIANT – especially when filled with these chocolate hearts.
Hobbycrafts Store - Do Crafts Hampstead
This paper was not in the sale, (£2.99 for pack of 6 x 6) but I just had to have it, the colours and patterns are so lovely and a change from some of the  “pretty pretty” ranges.  It comes from DoCrafts and I am hoping to make some really lovely cards with it in the coming week.  I also bought some of the alphabet sets that go with it.

ooh, quite jealous there, had to just rush straight in and out of Hobbycraft today (I'd spent all of my time in Dunelm Mill and The Range), but did manage a quick bargain or two - may even get time to blog about them...
