I thought I had better give the QVC Retail Outlet Store in the Darwin Centre, Shrewsbury a mention as I notice that it still gets quite a few hits when I look at my blog stats and I don’t want to mislead anyone ….
QVC don’t seem to do much crafting these days (if any???) and this was reflected in the stock they had in the shop last time I was there about four weeks ago … and I would hate for anyone to go there after my excitement of finding a fabulous crafty bargain in past posts and be disappointed.
Four weeks ago the craft section was reserved to a couple of shelves in the corner at the back of the store …. which would have been easy to miss if you didn’t know what you were looking for, all they had were a few Martha Stewart “All Over The Page” Punches – which weren’t that cheap and piles and piles of digi image CD’s for about £1.99. There were a few other paper bits and pieces, but nothing compared to the past, so perhaps not worth making a special visit or going out of your way for in search, solely, of a crafty bargains.
The stock must be change constantly …. so I guess it’s the luck of the draw when you go in …. the element of surprise! I love Yankee Candles and though I didn’t buy any at the time, as I have cupboard full of their Baby Powder and Midnight Jasmin tea lights …. (my favourites), they did have big packs of assorted small candles for about £24 … which I may have snapped up in the past to split up and give as presents with a votive holder.
