I love a good surprise... going out to dinner, friends dropping by, someone else unloading the dishwasher..
So I took off last Friday to town to do my usual payday errands. I needed to go to the post office, the bank, the grocery store. B-O-R-I-N-G!! So to break things up a bit I decided to see if my LQS had any fabric suitable for another couple of checkerboards. I was looking for some kind of black print and some kind of red print. Right off I found some red with white polka dots. I looked and looked for some kind of black print, but had to settle for a white with a black dot. I figured I can always use dots so I told her to cut 2 yards of each.
That's when she told me.....
"Did you know all fabric is 50% off?"
Now that is a nice surprise!!! I bought a couple of more yards...yea, just a couple.
See, most of you can go to your LQS and find a ton of fabric, but mine is almost bare. She is attempting to "down size in order to fit into a smaller store and ride out the recession". Her words. I moved here 3 years ago. She hasn't had a new bolt of fabric since then. For the first year, I didn't even notice. And then I realized that every time I went in, the same fabric was there,just moved around. I think with some good marketing she could turn this around. I was lucky to find these.
