It's always a pleasure to go shopping in Nelson, NZ!!!!
Here are some of my favorite shops.
As usual I managed to spend a small fortune, but I did have to replenish some stock for my travelling etsy shop.
St Vincent de Paul always sells the best vintage buttons.
Some vintage patterns ( looks like an old flame of mine) and some 4 ply wool were picked up. I do indeed, fancy knitting a mens 1930s waistcoat or vest with this.
This old needle case is very worn, but that is part of its charm, and it is the only one I have ever seen with the needle numbers stamped on.
The original owner must have been a champion knitter.
Off to the North Island tomorrow - cant wait to see what goodies are in store for me there.
