Ebook [Apr. 12th, 2014|05:56 pm]
thriftstoreuk chat

Cheeky post I know, but I've started writing an ebook series on Women in History and the first volume is available on Amazon! It's available for the Kindle here - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ILW2SSQ

If you buy it and read it I'd really appreciate a review (to be even more cheeky).

It even has a Facebook page that I made for it :D https://www.facebook.com/30WomeninHistory

I'm currently working on volume 2, which is why I'm procrastinating on LJ XD

Alternative contact? [Aug. 20th, 2013|10:58 am]

Does anyone know if there's a new/alternative contact address for the thriftstoreuk mods aside from the email on the profile, as I think it may be an old/un-monitored address and I need to get in contact with them.

Hey guys. I was wondering if there are any other selling/trading communities, preferably for peeps within the UK but any comms with good/reliable feedback are cool.

Grey Lace Fabric [Apr. 11th, 2013|06:55 pm]
thriftstoreuk chat


I hope someone can help me. I'm getting married later on this year, and have my nan making my wedding dress. I have my pattern and everything but the one thing I'm struggling to find is some Grey lace. I have looked on ebay, etsy etc, but can't find big enough quantities or many I like.

Can anyone recommend somewhere please? I'm not looking to spend a fortune, as we're trying to save money with my nan doing it.

sewing machine advice [Oct. 30th, 2012|06:32 am]
thriftstoreuk chat

I'm thinking of buying a sewing machine and was wondering if anyone here had any advice about what kind of machine to pick. I'm a beginner and looking to use it for small projects, general household/clothes repairs. I've been scouring sewing books and sewing related websites so think I'm beginning to get a pretty good sense of what I need... 

But one thing I'm not sure abbout is whether to opt for a mechanical machine or an electronic one. Anyone here have any thoughts on this? what are the pros and cons of each?

Any other things I might want to think about would be welcome too!

how long to keep make up? [Sep. 1st, 2012|11:56 am]
thriftstoreuk chat

I am looking to get rid of some make up.

I have some Barry M eye glitter/shadow pot things, that I never used I've had them for a few years. I know some make up goes "off", but I still use these from time to time but not very often. Would it be ok to sell them on, or would that  be a bit cheeky.
Thanks!! x
