A great little shopping place!

A couple of days ago, I went on a little road trip.

I ventured all my my lickle own-some (well, accompanied by Sally SatNav!) to Sheffield, to dig out -what turned out to be - a wonderful shop called Craft Den.

I had been blurfing around the net, and came across the name of the shop, and my eyes twinkled with excitement! A shop.. near me... !! Well, as it happens, it's 25 minutes away.. but still!

So, I set sail in my little blue Atoz along the motorway, all full of excitement.. and boy I wasn't disappointed!!!!

Lynn owns the shop and is really lovely! My mission - and I chose to accept it - was to purchase some copic markers. I don't know why I needed them, but I just did. You know what it's like. I only got around 10 to start with, and Lynn took the time to explain all about them, what the code numbers meant, how they worked.. I tell you that lady's got the patience of a saint with me around! LOL..

The shop itself is on Loxley Road, Sheffield (click on her name above and it'll take you to her blog where there is a link to the shop. ) She does online ordering too, which is great for anyone not close enough.

There are papers galore (dribble dribble!) and a most wonderful range of stamps, nesties, inks and other wonderful things.

So, Thank you Lynn. It's really lovely to walk into a craft shop and be made to feel most welcome.
