Hmmm..... yarn stash?
sounds like a plan to me. I've actually had some luck lately in USING my stash..I guess that's why I was hoarding it all? Can't wait til Spring when I can get to more flea markets and buy more..lol.
You really did hit the jackpot with it. Was that last summer or last year? I can't remember.
I actually have gotten quite a bit in the past year and a half. I There's a lot I haven't shared with the calss-so to speak, here's an example--
the man gave us the whole suitcase for 5$. He had already gotten rid of 3 more before we got there..missed the boat on that one!
I just seem to be in the right place at the right time. I have passed some up--to the confusion of my DH. Sometimes it's just junky..the texture is too rough for me, or I just don't need any more white for heaven's sake lol.
I'd love to be able to travel around to widen my chances. I have heard of a huge yard sale that extends through the southern states..anyone heard of it?
Well, I'm not sure, but there is a huge one in Texas. There are several in the same area all about the same time of year. The biggest one is the Marburger Farm Antique Show, but I've never seen yarn there. And there are a couple of places to stop on the way there or the way back. Although the pictures on the link make it look very hoity toity, there are still lots of dealers there that have just everyday junk. So something like a suitcase full of yarn could be found. There are typically more than 350 dealers. This is well publicized. People travel from all over the country to come to this event.
PS: I think you got a great deal there!
I found it Cheryl--the world's longest yard sale..could be fun!
doesn't it? and not just for the sales..the trip would just be neat..
