Living in regional NSW I tend purchase my items locally or online from small businesses and handmade businesses. I know my parcel post delivery guy quite well and its always fun to open packages because there is usually something little that makes this purchase stand out.
- I received some hand spun wool the other week from a new supplier. The product is excellent (yeah!) and I loved the fact that the supplier had sprayed the wrapping paper in with lavender oil which meant the wool smelt nice with the added bonus of keeping the bugs away.
- I always look forward to getting parcels from Crochet Australia. The owner Vicki offers great customer service and I must admit I do look forward to the Freddo Frog that always comes with the order. I also enjoy receiving Vickie's latest printed newsletter which is devoted to yarn crafts especially crochet. I've found it to be very informative and I've even kept some of them so I can refer back to them at a later date.
- In February I won some fabric covered cards made by Here we go loopy lou. I was very excited about winning these cards but to be honest my win was oh so much better when I open the envelope to see the gorgeous packaging - I even took a photo of it!
