Perle 8 thread

I don't often pop into op shops these days, but I was dragged (willingly, of course) into Oakleigh Salvos this afternoon by my son.
There I found 15 balls of Perle 8 thread for $8.00. Moments earlier I had been contemplating buying Perle 8 thread from the nearby wool store for $2.50 per ball. Clearly my son was onto a winner!

Displayed on an old spool holder found at the same oppy a couple of years ago.

Love love love it. Op shops always surprise me with the best bargains.

What a bargain! What are you planning to do with those, Jo? Do you crochet, or do needlecraft? Love those colours.

What a gorgeous display, they remind me of delicious colourful macarons! ALWAYS, ALWAYS check op shops before buying from the "real" stores!

I have these on display in my living room :)

I might do some embroidery with them, but will definitely use most of it for hand quilting.
