Razzamatazz


Liz tipped me off the other day, about a little shop that I'd never visited....


Trimmings and Remnants is jam packed with all things bright and sparkly - fabrics, sequins, trims, ribbon etc etc etc. If you needed to make a costume for Mardi Gras, then this would definitely be the place to visit!

I just couldn't resist picking up a couple of sparkly remnants, and some sparkly thread to play with. Now... what to make???

Yay! It's sparkly central thats for sure!
I love their retro laminex counter, and sometimes you can find some treasures like old Czech crystals and vintage findings
I hope the oppy near by was open and worth looking at too.

Don't laugh, but many years back I made a bikini top and micro mini from that sparkly fabric & wore it to Mardi Gras. Those were the days. x

This is what I love about blogs ... every day someone has posted something that you just have to buy/do/visit. I think I would like this shop very much!!!

I love your sparkly stuff and the thread - excellent choice of colour combo! I used fabric like that to line a wizard's cape for Argy. I can't resist shiny things!

I love a bit of sparkle. Sounds like a lovely shop and I look forward to seeing what you make. I have some of the thread that you picked up and have used it for some free hand machine embroiderey and serged edging. I seem to remember using the silicone thread lubricant(?) and needing to go slow because it was a little prone to breakage.

You can buy sparkly thread?? That is totally new to me. I wouldn't have a clue what to make with them... other than a sparkly pair of pants with a midriff top with sparkly long sleeves... in Bubbles size hahahaha...
