I am so sick of hearing about the holiday sales. I stayed home on Friday, except for a quick trip out to the closest grocery store and all day long, I got bombarded with anti-shopping messages. Am I the only one who thinks that's worse than the ads!
Saturday Morning, Teenage Daughter and I were at Joann's a half hour before they opened, waiting in line for a dress form and discounted fabric for her costume making.
I did get some of the seventy-five cent fat quarters. I was thinking about Bonnie's mystery and didn't have paint chips. These might be too yellow and not gold enough, but I can always use them for something else. The light grey I bought for my constant is almost definitely too light...but it'll make a great background for something. I just need to figure out when I can get out of the house to find a better grey.
The store wasn't too crowded, but the customer service wasn't great. Is it too much to ask that the employees know where the dress forms are, if they exist at all? Or that they not be scattered in three different locations?
I did find out that the VIP discount card (which is free to members of sewing/crafting organizations, which in my case is the quilt guild) worked on doorbusters, which made some great deals even better. (Edited to add -- just take your guild membership card into the store and they'll give you a form to fill out for the discount card. There are different cards available for teachers and students -- details here. I'm not affiliated with Joann's in any way, I just wish someone had told me about the discounts sooner. It would have really added up over the years I was in the knitting guild!)
