Sometimes I was so overwhelmed with excitement and sensory overload, my hands were shaking!
|A shop selling the most wonderful ribbons, |
a dilemma "what to buy, what would I use?"
I managed to walk away with only one piece of ribbon, but
now wishing I had bought more.....
|Kawachi, art supplies shop. Not as good as Sekaido in Tokyo,|
but I still managed to spend lots of Yen here!
|View from the 33rd floor of the Swissotel in Osaka.|
|ABC Craft, a small view of the 'shop' - rows and rows|
of craft supplies. Imagine Spotlight + Lincraft + every online
craft shop in one location.......but with only half an hour! Urrghh!
|In the Sasabe Gazai art shop in Osaka.|
Can you see the frenzied look in my eyes?
|Just a few metres of fabric in one of the craft shops...|
|Couldn't resist these, furry hiking pants with built in leggings,|
but no, I didn't buy them for fear of how big my butt would look in them.
|PAPER, lots of it. Yum, luckily it doesn't weigh much!|
|12 Cashiers at ABC Craft + a queue controller man.|
|Toraya fabics in an Osaka alley, open till late every night!|
|Part of my stash when I returned home, luckily we had|
extra baggage allowance!
