The best secret to end of bolt specials is to NOT say how much you want, take the bolt up to the cutting counter, and ask how much is left on the bolt. Then hem and haw until the wonderful lady (or guy) behind the counter says, "If you take all of it I can give it to you for 20% off." As long as you finish off the bolt, you get the deal on whatever yardage is left. You don't really need to hem and haw-I just do that because I am standing there going 90 miles an hour in my head on what I can do with it--lol. The 20% is for the entire amount left on the bolt, not what is left after asking for a certain amount. That is my experience anyway with 'end of bolts'. I don't go to Hancock Fabrics and ask for it nor expect the deal though. Our local one does not honor this anyway. But our LQS and several others I have been to will do this. Kudos to LQS's!
