Hi All things clay, hope your well. I haven't been including as much raw foods as I would like to, I just have a little here and there - but I have been eating a lot of fruit and not having any chocolates/crisps/cakes etc.<quoted text>
Hi Chalk lover, so nice to hear from you - I always enjoyed your posts. Congratulations on your marriage! I believe you talked about raw foods in the past - have you been including much raw in your improved diet?
If you've read my recent posts you will have seen that my big thing right now is chalk. I was wondering if you had any tips for me on good brands of chalk? I'm planning a trip to the UK this summer and while there thought I'd see what I could pick up.
I see that you've ordered clay from Wanda and Leslie. Can you tell me if it was expensive to ship to the UK?
Tips for chalk. Well, there isn't much the UK has to offer I'm afraid. We have one chalk manufacturer called stadium http://www.stadiumcrayons.co.uk/chalks/
they produce chalks and crayons. But they sell in bulk to retail and industry. I have a few packs still. We have Crayola the anti-dust type, Stephens chalk and a few other brands but none that I really like. Here is a link to ebay and amazon where you'll see the types of chalks available in the UK
During my search for chalk, I managed to buy quite a lot of different types (which I still have boxed away). The German chalks are nice, if you like the soft crumbly kind. But to get those, I went onto other ebay sites in different countries in the EU (Germany, France etc). I have loads of these boxed away too. Plus I have the old style crayola and and brand called alpha that is the same hard chalk like crayola.
Depending on where you're visiting in the UK, we can meet up and you can try all of my chalks - I have loads.
Shipping to the UK from the US is expensive and unfortunately in the past, I have been charged an extra UK customs charge to release the goods.
Hope this helps
