That's exactly what I did. It's an extremely frustrating way to shop! The deals really made it worth it though.

YOu have to look more at all the yarns. They are all SORT OF on sale. I just happened to be at an LYS this weekend in Los Angeles, and I can tell you that many of the prices they have listed for their sale yarns at this website are seriously high. Yes, there are some good deals, but their initial retail prices are bumped up, I think.

I don't know about the original prices...I didn't pay much attention to that, but I can tell you many of the sale prices were at or below cost.

I bought two types of yarn, both were at least 50% less than my LYS.

Lucky you!

Plus some of the brands that place has (Fiesta, Art Yarns and Alchemy) are SUPER expensive. I've looked into putting Fiesta into my store but I just don't think many people are willing to spend that much. The yarn is gorgeous but just $$$!

Don't get me wrong, I don't think that the sale prices are high. I just noticed that the retail prices they listed for some of the yarns seemed high. Essentially I was just saying that maybe there trying too hard to make their deals look better.

You could be right about that. Some of them down about 75% but then at cost...that would mean regular is 25% over retail.

The regular retail prices on the brands I mentioned though are just really high to start with.
