Amazing Skip Find!
Went shopping today to look for suitable lighting for my table at KDF, and also to try and find some carboard tubing i need to keep items safe travelling.
Found the lighting, but had no luck with suitable wide tubing.
So thought i'd look around the industrial estate and especially the skips/large rubbish containers. I love skips by the way, lol.
Just about gave up and then found the best skip ive ever seen, full of tubing... but with materail attached to it still!!! Just couldn't believe my luck.
Here's what ive taken off the tubes... wish i'd taken more now. Theres a lot of muslin in this pile and i use that all the time so doubt i'll ever have to buy it again. Lots of the material i will use when i decorate the whole of the downstairs during the summer. Its mostly creams/beige/gold and would have cost me a fortune.
I cant believe the company could throw it out. If it was me i'd have offered it to students on textile/fashion/art courses.
So its all off the rolls and now i feel like going back and filling the car again.
I dont like to be greedy but its just sitting there on the street asking to be taken away. Whats there is enough to fill an average material shop!
Think i'll go back... God knows what ill do with it all.
