Some time in July, me hubs went to check out the storage items at Ikea's annual sale. I was too busy to go so I asked him to buy a specific fabric for me. You probably think he bought the wrong fabric. Um, worse. He came back empty-handed as "the entire textile department at Ikea had disappeared! Ikea has shut down the fabric section."
I simply could not believe it. On the last day of the sale, I made a trip to Ikea personally to see for myself. Nope. The entire textile department at Ikea is still where it has always been. The difference between most men and women? Men sees empty space when women sees fabric.
Anyway, I bought this very striking Ikea blue and orange fabric. It wasn't on sale but it looked so festive I had to get it. Made 2 big bags and 1 pouch out of it!
recessed zip tote.
I'm a little concerned that the rainy season is not over yet. Just half an hour ago, it was thunderstorming like crazy. See, from 20th to 22 August, Friday to Saturday, I'll be selling my bags at the Singapore Art Museum as part of Singapore HeritageFest 2010. I'm going with the MAAD gang. As the event is held outdoors, outside the main entrance, it is understandable why I'm very concerned. Apart from rain, I'm worried about flood, where to get food, tea, mosquitoes just to name a few.
This is the first time I'm selling 3 straight days. This means I have 3 days to sell all my items. If traffic is bad, it could mean 3 days of suffering. Whatever. Details are below.
Friday, 20 Aug 5pm to 10pm
Saturday, 21 Aug 1pm to 10pm
Sunday, 22 Aug 12pm to 8pm
