    Lolly's in Shipshewana, Indiana

    Anyone in the area going to Lolly's one and only sale on Feb. 2? If you show up on your jammies everything in the store is 30% off. The sale is only from 6:00AM to 9:00AM. The whole town is having a sale that day if you are in your jammies. I will be going but I have no idea what to expect. Will the store be jam-packed to the point that you can't get waited on? Lolly's web-site says that all the hotels are booked up months in advance for that weekend.

    Let's see, it's a 5 hour drive to Shipshe and the store opens at 6...

    hmmm, I think I better pass

    But it sure is tempting.... I love Lolly's! If you go, be sure to tell us what it was like!

    Oh I will definitely go. DH got me a Lolly's gift certificate for Christmas and I've been waiting for this sale. My son and dil live in Goshen so I have a place to stay the night before.

    I'll be there and we live in the Milwaukee area. We book a bnb way in advance. There is a big line at 6, but we just let people run in and take our time. That is because we get there a day early, case what we want, and then go to it immediately. There are many cutters and it goes really fast. We live it. I grew up not far from there in Three Rivers. But Shipshewanna wasn't a tourist place at the time.

    We did it once. Some stores open at 4, 5 and 6. Shoppers all over. Lollys is full but the store is big and they are prepared. Smartwool socks were the special thing the year I went (not at Lollys).

    It is 3 hours from me but not worth it. I get 30% off in March at two shops here for my birthday so I will wait.

    It's an especially good time to buy precuts, books, and things that you don't have to stand in line to get cut. I checked yesterday and LIttle Bit of Lolly's in the basement will have the fabrics on the bolts at $5.95, with a 1 yd minimum of each. Those are fabrics from the store that are brought down when new fabrics come in each season and more room is needed in the main store. The best buy there will be fat quarters for a $1.00 each and the rowboat is full to over flowing.
    I will be there but then I live 20 mins away.

    I plan on this sale every year. My husband usually comes with me and he just stands there and lets me pile him up with bolts of fabrics. It is also a great time to get things like layer cakes, jelly roles, etc. that don't need to be cut.
    I live about 1 hour away and it is worth getting up early and putting on those jammies for!!

    I used to go regularly with the ladies in my family! It was such fun and just a little over an hour away. At that time it was 60% off at 6:00am then 50% at 7:00 a.m., 40% off at 8:00 a.m. and so on. It was such fun to shop real bargains with a world of silly ladies and a few hubbies in the cold predawn hours at Lolly's. For 30% off, I choose to stay home and use my stash. Sorry Shippsi, but I need a better draw than 30%. I do have wonderful memories to hold on to and may one day return to the event. And yes, there are events all over town not just at Lolly's. Have fun gals and gents.

    Thanks for the advice about the pre-cuts. I hadn't thought about that before.

    Those are the prices all the time in the basement.
