Where do you get your fix? - Reverse Garbage

I know, I know, I've already harped on about this place - but seriously - they're on a craft vibe! I blew in there today - another hot Saturday in Brisbane - and they had set up a display of rolls of laces, buttons, fabrics...ok, so most of it isn't to my tastes - but, someone in craftland might be desperate for a heap of brown buttons for instance! There seems to be lots of fabrics - so get in and have a rummage if you're in West End Brisbanites!

Anyway - my really big find was a fantastic table which has a little handle at the front which you turn to raise or lower the height - brilliant! Plus, it's a really great size for cutting fabric on, laying out patterns etc - so I snapped it up (it was cheap)! Apparently an old warehouse was being cleaned out and they had four of these tables that they had no use for so just dropped them off. I think I might try gluing a 1 meter steel ruler on the edge (for fabric measuring)...or I wonder if I can find a cutting mat big enough to stick down on it?


  1. Oh my goodness, look at all those brown buttons! All at once its both fascinating and grotesue (how ugly is that brown!)

  2. Wow! That table is brilliant! Did you get the last one?

    I love Reverse Garbage. Since having the little one, I've only been able to get in there once, but DH works across the road from there, so I send him in from time to time :)

  3. Hey Melanie - yes, it was the last one. I need to get my friend Ellie with her trusty station wagon to pick it up for me as I didn't actually think at the time who i was going to transport it (haha - I'm such a fool!).
