The show is held in Alexandra Palace and it normally takes us about 3 hours to get there, so we are usually tired before we start.
Here is the view of London from Alexandra Palace. You can just make out the Gherkin building on the lefthand side.
This is the entrance to Alexandra Palace, the building is absolutely beautiful and worth going to visit just to look at.
The entrance hall, full of avid scrapbookers eager to make their purchases.
One of the statues in the entrance hall.
The hall was a lot busier than normal and the stalls were jam packed with everyone trying to get the best bargains. At one point they had to announce they were opening all the doors as it was hot, people were nearly fainting.
This is all of the us, after we had finished buying lots of goodies. It really is an exhausting day, but we wouldn't miss it for the world.
Here are the some of the goodies I bought on the day. I had gone with the intention of not buying any paper and that disappeared second stall in. I actually came back with stacks of paper, as the packs of paper were being sold off so cheaply.
I bought lots of cardboard templates which allow me to draw and cut my scrap pages into interesting shapes. I also got a new bag, as it was also being sold so cheaply.
I bought lots and lots of stamps, which I love. So you can see I had a fabulous day and now I can't wait to get scrapping again. With the kids now back at school, I am hoping to have a scrap day by the end of the week.
My only disappointment about Saturday was that I couldn't get a new picture of Platform 9 3/4 from the Harry Potter film. They have made a permanent reminder of the film at Kings Cross Station. However, on this visit, it was all cordoned off, so we couldn't have any pictures taken. So I am afraid you will have to make do with this old one.
