I try and use recycled goods in my crafting where ever I can and wherever practical. Unfortunately this can mean spending a lot of time searching for goods instead of crafting, scouring charity shops in particular at lunchtimes and on weekends.
Things I am always on the look out for:
Pic by the bottomless pool
Old Street Directories
Colourful china cups and saucers

Old Tapestries (unframed)
Plain china teapots
Cork backed coasters
Do you have things you are always looking for? Perhaps we can keep an eye out and look for each other?
