QHHS Band Craft Fair & Retail Therapy

The craft fair was yesterday and to keep it simple, I’ll just say it was disorganized and not very many people were making sales. Traffic was so-so, and several people commented to me that they would never spend money at something like this. It was just not a good day.

After all that, today I decided I needed a little retail therapy. There were several good in the apps for both Joann’s and Michael’s, so I decided to visit both of them.

This is what I came away with.

Joann’s

Caron jumbo skein with a 60% off coupon – $5.99 (reg. $9.99)
RHSS jumbo skein with a 40% off coupon – $4.79 (reg. $7.99)
8 regular skeins of RHSS with a 30% off coupon – $2.44 each (reg. $3.49)
2 Big Twist value at 25% off – $2.39 each (reg. $3.19)

Total savings $17.18

After that I decided to go back to Michael’s and got this stuff.

Michael’s

3 skeins Craft Smart with 20% off coupon – $2.39 each (reg. $2.99)
2 skeins Caron Simply Soft at 2 for $5 & 20% off coupon – $2 each (reg. $4.49)
Impeccable BIG! on sale for $7 and 20% off coupon – $5.61 (reg. $9.99)

Total savings $11.09

I spent $54 including tax on 18 skeins of , mostly in colors I didn’t already have.

Now the question is where am I going to put it all?

  1. I’ll store it for in my home. Only problem is I live in Anchorage Alaska.

      Haha I managed to squeeze all but 2 skeins into the shelves. Might need to move a few things around to make them fit.
