Anyway, I was very dissappointed that the shop was closed (for lunch) and I ended up in the Craft and Hobby shop, just beside it, where I popped in to buy a skein of embroidery thread. I happen to know the girl who runs the shop, although she wasn't actually serving, so I felt a little mean just purchasing ONE skein of thread, so I had a browse through their button-stand.
I bought three sets of buttons, some decorative shimmery lace trim, and of course the embroidery thread. I hope the tweed shop is open next time though 'cos it could get a bit expensive if I go and buy craft supplies (which I don't really need!) every time it is closed! I usually purchase crafts supplies online, but it's quite nice to go into a 'bricks and mortar' shop and have a browse around and be able to see the products in front of you - what more could I ask for, the 'craft and hobby' shop just beside the tweed shop - Oh Dear, I foresee financial ruin!!
I must try and take my camera the next time I go to the tweed shop though, to take a picture of the outside, at least. It's very quaint!
Cheerio an Drasda :)
