I went to a quilt store yesterday that I haven't been to before, I was told over the phone they had some fabric I was looking for and it would be on sale as they where having an open house this weekend. Happy! Happy! Happy!
I got to the store, it was predictably crowded, and unexpectedly small. I finally found the fabric I was looking for, in the wrong colour, and they're idea of a sale was $15.95/m down from $17.95/m?!?......Seriously?! :shock: Gee, what a deal. :roll:
Very little seemed to be on sale, (notions, patterns and stencils sure as heck wheren't!) and when it was it was the same kind of pricing. They also had tables set up with bins and bins of fat quarters for $4.50?! Some of the fabric there was stuff I had seen at other stores allot cheaper.... I get that all quilt store owners have overhead etc etc etc, but geez!
The main intent of the open house seemed to be to get people in to sign up for their classes and then immediately buy the fabric they'd need.
It was a disappointing shopping trip.
