My LYS had a 40% off sale on yarns they weren't going to carry anymore for the past 2 weeks, and starting today what was left was 70% off. I should start by saying that my LYS prices are reasonable anyway. Their Wildfoote sock yarn was already $5.50, and I scooped up a bunch at 40% off, so $3.30 a skein! But I had been eying some Cascade Superwash, regularly $9.60 for 100 grams. I was there with a small group of die-hards waiting for the store to open, and I headed straight to the Cascade bin. I was the only one there! The others had dispersed throughout the store. I scooped up a bunch, and it was a good thing I was there when they opened, because within 10 minutes the yarn I wanted was all gone. I got 12 balls of Cascade Superwash for $2.88 each! I feel like I stole something. Yay! :happydancing:
You are so lucky. You got great deals. There are no yarn stores in my town. I have to take the PATH train into NYC to buy yarn. And of course because it is NYC, everything is usually overpriced. Lately I have been ordering yarn & supplies online because of the decent prices.
I was at the same sale, and mwedzi is right - it was totally crazy. She also snagged the red-brown Cascade 220 superwash that I wanted too! But that didn't stop me from buying 19 skeins of Plymouth Baby Alpaca DK, no sirree. Or the 6 or so remaining brown Cascade 220 superwash.
