Hello fellow Alchemists,
Today I am sharing with you a Star Wars Galactic Adventure Pop Up Book and Reject Shop Haul. The kids and I went to Warrawong a bit over an hour from here to watch Infinity Wars and there are a lot of shops there lol.
So many bargains at the Warrawong Reject Shop. Some I didn’t even know were bargains until I looked at my receipt after I paid. I was extremely happy to find the Flourish and Glasshouse stacks to go with the ephemera and journal cards I had already bought. Matchy matchy things make life a bit easier when creating. See the Glasshouse Stack and Glossies in this post.
The Lemonade Stand cards and Here and Now ephemera have me curious about their matching papers. Missed those though. 🙁 However, when going through my stash I found the journal cards to match the here and now ephemera. Trying to find out what things are called is hard. When I do I’ve taken to using a Sharpie to label the packets so I know what I ‘m using.
What can I say about the Star Wars Galactic Adventure Pop Up book by Matthew Reinhart? It is amazing. I have never ever seen so many pop ups stuck into one book! Mind bogglingly awesome! The grand finale was unexpected when I was looking at this in the Salvos shop. The book most definitely had to come home with me…
Hope you enjoyed my Star Wars Galactic Adventure Pop Up Book and Reject Shop Haul. I am trying to think up ideas for how to use the playing cards. They are huge. If you have a suggestion leave a comment and let me know. Hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy yourself. Bye for now.

Hello Fellow Alchemists,
First an apology, due to technical difficulties the card post I wanted to share has been pushed back a few days, sorry 🙁 But on the upside I can finally show you what I bought at the KaiserCraft outlet and Typo. Beyond excited to have finally gotten to go to the KaiserCraft outlet. Typo was just a bonus lol.
At Typo, which is a stationary store, they had a clearance table where everything was $2 but most were broken or damaged items, some were beyond repair or missing pieces. There was an articulated wooden mannequin to use when drawing figures, he just needs his foot glued back on. The mermaid pencil case had to come home with me, so pretty. If I hadn’t dropped fortune (for me anyway) at the KaiserCraft outlet I may have gotten a couple more. I also got a couple of nerdy calendars and presents for others that I can’t share…
The KaiserCraft Outlet was where it was at though. If you watched the video you’ll see I got a tonne of bargains! There was some confusion and a little disappointment when I first walked in as I couldn’t even see the KaiserCraft products in the shop. They were hidden all the way at the back. At first I only saw full price products too. Imagine my relief when I found the bargains, woo!
A whopping two hours were spent in there :O I got bargains for myself and for my sister too. I was somewhat restrained though and put a lot of the thing’s I wanted back and went for the most useful things. Though I am kicking myself for not buying the new fairy stuff even though it’s full price. I may have even sat on the floor at one point to sort out the must haves for myself and my sister, hey I had just walked all around Ikea too haha.
Do you have any of the products from my haul? What’s your favourite?
Thanks for watching,
The Arty Crafty Alchemist
