View Full Version : Updated with photo - I went to Smileys Manhattan sale

12-02-2006, 08:52 AM
They rented the Holiday Inn's ballroom. They put everything on the sale list out in ailse and there was still plenty room to walk up and down. It was a pleasure to shop :heart:
I am glad they used laundry baskets instead of supermarket shopping cart so I had to leave after stuffing the basket, and that I only have enough hands to carry 1 basket! Oh, also I had to carry the 2 kitchen-garbage-bag-full of yarns to catch the bus. You know what I mean? With that kind of price, it's hard not to load up your truck without breaking your bank account!

Now, where am I going stash them??? :?? The bags are still sitting by the staircase :oops:

Damn Smileys! :wall:

Wow..I bet that was fun! I've ordered on line from them so I'm sure their selection was good in person. :happydance:

Yeah for yarn! I posted a link to my KH blog because I have a lot of photos. It takes you right to the page.

BTW.. posting photos from blogger doesn't always work well. I was able to view it by right click on the x and then viewing photo. I then resized it. You can resize it on your computer and attach it like I did.

I will check it out your blog !

I will send you something.

You don't wanna move back. We are considering moving out someday. I feel sorry for the babies and toddlers growing up in Manhattan. There is no clean air for their little lungs :([/url]

Oh shoot, sk.... how did you hear of that sale!? I'm in Nyc as you know and I would've been there pronto. I didn't see an ad for this anywhere. Maybe just Smiley's had an ad? Hmmmmm. Not that I need anymore yarn.

I got it from their website. I visit the site every now and then. The Manhattan sale has much more selection than the store sales, about 3x as much. Maybe we'll catch up next year.
