Treasures & Trims…

I am so excited to share my recent finds with you… I cant wait to use them…

Recently I was in Leeds for my little bro’s graduation and after a celebratory lunch we strolled back through the city, past the beautiful corn exchange and through the famous Kirkgate Market… Out the other side we stumbled upon a collection of outside stalls and with the sun beating down on us we strolled through the aisles. I was in awe of all the sari stalls and was slowing the group down when my love spotted an indian lace stall that he thought I should check out…. wow.

The stall has boxes upon boxes of trims, trims and embroidered lovliness… I unfortunately had zero money on me, but after a kind temporary loan from the awesome Mumma Lo I indulged….

What was most surprising was the price, everything was so cheap!! Compared to what you’d pay for the equilivant down here, the things were more then half what I would have expected to pay! I was in heaven!

There were lots that were too much for me.. anything pink and turquoise was a definite no no, but there was so much! I brought loads of sequinned trims and also some beautiful laces but what was really exciting were these amazing detailed back pieces? I’m not sure what they are, but that’s what I’m going to use them for, I want to make a couple of simple kimonos to wear with the lingerie collection which I’ve finally booked in! Yay! Will share a little post tomorrow about my inspiration!
