A Visit to Borders Scrap Store

I popped into the Musselburgh branch of the Borders Scrap Store today. It's in the Fisherrow Centre, an old converted school in Musselburgh.

The scrap store is full of loads of materials for crafting - mostly donated by companies and individuals who have craft materials they can no longer use.

If you're looking for crafting materials for yourself or for groups you work with it's a great place to go! They also welcome donations of craft materials, craft books etc.

They have a larger branch in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. 

You can visit their Facebook page here.

The Fisherrow Centre has on display several pieces from local artist, BobbyValentine, who collects driftwood and other items he finds in the River Esk and makes them into artwork like this

After visiting the scrap store I went for a walk along the River Esk and saw swallows and house martins for the first time this year! The poor birds must have found it difficult to find insects to eat in the dull and cold conditions....
