    Has anyone been to Tuesday Morning yet? Did you find any great buys?

    I went to one store closest to where I live. Oh my, the great big area they set aside for these items overwhelmed the few items they had. The clerk told me that what I was seeing was exactly what they got on.

    less than a dozen bundles of Fat quarters. 12 per pack for $7.99 - if there was something you wanted or would use.

    There were 4 Jelly rolls, and honestly, I have forgotten the prices. There was 1 only Layer cake.

    What I did want and did buy was a large 10" Easy Circle Cut ruler made by EZQuilting. it was $5.99. I was happy to find that one. A June Tailor 6" square ruler at $2.99 and a 4" one for $1.99

    That was it ladies. I hope some of you find more than I did. But I was happy to have found something I could use.

    Now I can get back to quilting.

    I got to the store an hour after it opened. I got:
    6 x 24 ruler (not Omnigrid) for $4.99 - it was the only one they had
    a pack of 8 fat quarters for $5.99 - they only had 4
    3 pack of fine point disappearing pens for $.99 - they only had 2 and I bought them both
    4 1/2" ruler for $1.99 - they have several of these
    Easy Circle cut ruler for $5.99 - can't remember if I took the only one or not
    6 packs (each containing 2) transfer papers for $1.99
    3 packs (each containing 4) machine quilting needles for $.99 - They bundle individual packs with zip ties, this whole thing was $.99

    I got there 20 mins. after it opened. They got in hardly any fabric in the stores, it seems. There were 2 jellyrolls left (poor quality so I left them there) and 3 fat quarter packs. Similarly they were rough fabric I could see through. I did pick up some rulers. But as I was standing there 2 women came and took the remaining fabric. So, by 8:25 it was ALL GONE.

    There are still some rulers but I see them being gone by the end of the day. :<

    Got 4 of the 6" rulers and 2 packages of disappearing pens.
    Putting these aside for Christmas.
    There was 8 packs of fat quarters and 3 jelly rolls. The fabric was poor quality so I left it at Tursday Mornings.

    Our store had some junked up stuff, on set of circle stencils, three piece chalk roller for marking, no fabric of any sort and some odd and ends that I've never seen before, but were Fons and Porter, for sure. Likewise with BigLots.........no FQ's at either of them. It's awash here.

    I didn't get anything. I saw 3 FQ bundles & that was it for fabric. I have seen lots more notions & things when I am in there on an off day poking around.

    I went after work to the one in Bloomfield Hills. Still alot of fat quarter sets and jelly rolls available- nothing that was appealing to me. I bought a few rulers and disappearing pens. I didn't have much expectation thanks to a few of the earlier posts!

    I guess no point in going there for quilt supplies. But I have seen some quilting supplies, cutting mats, rulers, marking supplies in the past. But as luck would have it, none of the sizes I need.

    I will say that the Tuesday Morning store I visited was a shocking revelation to me. When I lived in another area, it was a nice, clean, upscale store. This one was like a warehouse. It used a lot of metal shelving and there was almost anything a person could think of, on sale there.

    I believe they buy out left-over merchandise from stores going out of business. Then they divide it up to send to a lot of stores and consequently they offer very little of some items. This was the case with the sewing and quilting supplies. Not all stores had the same things, or the same quantity or quality. This is just one of those places where you have to look carefully before you buy.

    I went into Vegas and planned on going to several TM Stores, but after what I read this morning and the shape of the one I went to I decided to forget it. I did get An Easy Square Jr, 6and a half inch square and 2 June Taylor 4 and a half inch squares. The store was in a very upscale neighborhood, but was a mess. I actually straightened up the end cap with the quilting stuff so I could see what they really had. I did find a great bunch of bargains at a quilt shop, but I think I will start a new thread for that.
