A Little Bit Of Shopping.

Posted on | July 5, 2012 | 8 Comments

I had a quick trip to Spotlight yesterday for a small number of purchases, and left with a smile after discovering a little discount, which I thought I must pass on. Spotlight has its own magazine, Get Creative, which costs 99c. On the back there is a $10 discount coupon on sales over $20.

So I bought this gorgeous little book of knitted animals. Normal price $23.99, but my price with the discount was $13.99. Don’t you love it when that happens!

The mag comes out every 2 weeks and there is another discount in the next one. You need to be a VIP member and only one voucher per member each fortnight.

And thanks to Anita for telling about this sweet little book.

My other retail therapy of late was during a trip to Intercourse in the Amish area of Lancaster, just out of Philadelphia. These are only a few of the stores I managed to visit with a friend.

And this is the treasure that came home with me.

Some lovely goodies at prices between $2 and $8 per yard. Music to ears of an Aussie who usually pays over $20 per metre.

    You lucky girl. I would love to visit the Amish country and fabric shop. It’s on my list of things to do! I would say you definately “scored” big time with the prices you have to pay in Australia. I complain here all the time, but I realize that we have things so good here! Now I must say, I love the little guys you are knitting for your grands. How fun are they!

    Lovely goodies, those prices are music to my British (and French!) ears too!!

  • Astrid says:

    That’s a bargain! I love it when I can purchase fabric from web shops on sales, since I don’t get quilting fabrics here. Lovely fabrics you have bought… wonder what you will make… ? :)

  • Nice finds! I have never been to PA Amish Country. It would be fun to visit these places.
