The stores were pretty much picked over due to the school holidays but I am quite excited about those old sorter cards. They have my cogs turning trying to think of an interesting way to use them.
The other thing is those hobbytex fabric paints...I have quite a collection building up. I buy them whenever I see them, even though I am not sure how I'm ever going to use them. I think I'm just trying to re-kindle childhood memories.
Some of you from Australia may remember them?
( I think the U.S. verion may have been called Artex?)
They were used a lot in the 70's. My aunts and my mum were always drawing or colouring something. Most of the stuff that was done back then is just plain ugly (and that's probably putting it lightly!). I am trying to figure out if there might be a more modern way to use them. Googling only seems to show ebay sellers and 70's-80's floral tablecloths and wall hangings (ick!). The hobbytex site states: HOBBYTEX was established in 1968 & we are still here !! Perhaps it means still stuck in 1968? :)
If anyone has any ideas?
If not I should be able to make a profit on ebay anyway!
