After, as I was in the area, I went looking for supplies in the wonderful indoor market. Found a fab haberdashery stall, where I got tons of supplies. Also found a great fabric stall at the outdoor market where I bought some rather lovely floral cotton for 1 pound a metre. I rounded off my trip with a visit to the Fancy Silk Store where I continued to feed my fabric addiction.
When I got home I found the fabric I'd bought off Ebay had arrived!
I put the floral flavour down to Spring and the fact I am reading Proust - pretentious moi?
