As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been bitten by the Paper Quilling bug and after spending a few days practicing quilling on notebook paper, I decide to buy some actual quilling paper to make earrings for my friends. In response to my Twitter question I was suggested two shops for quilling supplies. Since this shop is in Vadapalani and near my house, I managed to sneak in a quick visit last weekend. I had a bit of trouble finding the shop but I called their phone number and got precise instructions to get to the shop!

It is a little shop but its brimming over with crafty goodness 🙂 I quite didn’t know which direction I should turn in. I had to restrain myself into not buying and running off with the whole shop’s contents in my bag…lol..

I bought quilling paper (45Rs a pack)+ a quilling tool (30Rs)+ a crochet needle+some jewelry hooks+jewelry eye pins….whole thing came to 150 Rs!

So without further on for the address and contact details for the shop and also a list of art and craft supplies they stock. ( I collected these details from a pamphlet they handed out to me at the shop.)
