Pink Saturday - $2 shop

My pink contribution for this Saturday are these $2 products that I got from the $2 shop. It is so worth. Each item is only $2 and you just walked up to the cashier, she will count the number of items in your basket and times $2 and you pay for the total price.

Boxes to keep my crafts and batteries/memory cards for my camera.

Even these needles with the big eye hole that I needed for my crochet/knitting cost me $2 for a set of three. Been hunting for these needles for a long time. Great find. :)
I love the pink wool and I made a granny square but you will have to wait a long time for the finished product cause I need to make more squares and joined them together and it is very time consuming.

Meanwhile I get to crochet a scarf and I like it so much. I am not an expert so it is a bit untidy but seeing the scarf getting longer, the satisfaction is there.
I am almost done with the scarf and I need to crochet another 10 cm more. Took me about less than 3 days to finish this length during TV commercials...lol.

I've noticed when I ask the young ones ( 5 -9 yrs) to choose their favourite colours, the girls will snap up the pink ones,; the boys something like purple,green, yellow. But pink it is for girls!!

Such a l♥vely post for Pink Saturday. This is the one day of the week when I get to visit some of the best blogs in cyberspace and indulge my passion for pink.

Happy Mother's Day. I wish you all the peace and joy that a day in celebration of motherhood can bring. You don't have to grow a baby in your womb to be a mother...all you have to do is to l♥ve a human being with compassion and tenderness.

Hi Alice..
We have similar shops over here... we call them £1.00 shops.
Those big eyed needles look a bargain.. As for your skill at Crocheting I am so jealous.. ha! I can knit... and at the moment I am knitting a 'Throw Blanket' for our coming grandchild. I have tried many many times to crochet but without success... I wonder if it is because I am left handed?

alicesg said...

Lara, yes I love to browse the shops and hunt for good buys.

Tom, I too am jealous of your knitting...lol.
