This has obviously affected the postal deliveries, at an already really busy time. I got no post on Friday or Saturday, so was really happy when I got 7 packages through today :))
Most are supplies for work, but I did get some fun things too...
Firstly, The Day Of The Dead book from Korero books.
I saw this on the 'coming soon' page about 6 months ago and have been waiting, waiting, waiting for it to be published! Yak from Korero was supposed to be having a stall at Kustom Kristmas (the fair I did in London a few weeks ago), but because of bad weather, he couldn't make it. He'd just had the delivery of these books in too and I was dying to get one! Anyway, I ordered it online and FINALLY have it. Had a quick look through and it was worth the wait. For those who don't know - Korero is a UK independent publisher of alternative Kustom fine art, photography and design books. I have a few of them now and they really are something else.
I also got my order from online UK store Acorn & Will. I found out about Acorn & Will last weekend when reading Sue from retro greeting card company Pennychoo's blog.
They sell tons of whimsical vinatge and vintage inspired trinkets, homeware, jewellery and decorations - all at super value prices. Ticks my boxes! I bought..
Jarvis Scotty Brooch in Black - £3.75
and Mabel Swallow Brooch in Red - £3.75.
They came beautifully wrapped and with a lovely personalised note too.
The Scotty Brooch especially looks very Bakelite-ish and I love them. What a bargain! :))
Just waiting for a few more things to arrive before Xmas so fingers crossed!
