    Lucky find

    I went to our local Joanns this morning, (they are closing and opening a larger store about 10 miles away), to find out that a the prices went way down, 75% off all fabric, but you had to buy the whole bolt, 75% off all books, and 75% off all quilting items, wow I got about 15 new rulers, 8 new books, oh and all thread was 90% off, so I stocked up on that too. I think I am set now.

    You probably saved them $ in moving expenses. I'd call that a "win-win" situation. Good for you!

    ours in OKcity is moving as well,, BUT, they had a company come in to liquidate the stock and holy cow flies...the prices all went UP...and the GOOD threads actually got moved, so NO bargains there at all! I was very upset after driving 2 hours to get there!

    Wow you got lucky. When ours closed they went to a liquidator and the prices were a joke....not even 40% off.

    Lucky you. I rarely find bargains like that, although to be honest, I would have to leave the apt. and my arthritis doesn't always let me do that. It's tough to get old, but I'm happy you got such great deals.

    Wow , I would love to see a photo of that haul! Did you need a truck to get home? it makes me think , of my Dad. whenever there was a good bargain going on , and we would get all excited... he would say "better take the truck!"

    Good for you, when our JoAnns moved, they just pack up and take the stuff to their new store, we never get deals like that.
