Yarn Sale Goodies

I went to the Kertzer warehouse sale a couple of weekends ago. Till now I've been too lazy to post what I got, but I'm on a blogging streak today, so here it is.

The whole shebang (except for 2 hanks of brown 100% wool I used for the hat/scarf set, seen in the previous post):
All that was only $110 Canadian! Looking at it now makes me tempted to go back and get more - the sale is on till Dec 9, and maybe they've got more stock...

Anyways, here's closeups of each yarn:

Stylecraft Safari (10 balls):

Alafoss Lopi (10 balls) - I think this one is my favorite. I'm in love with the colour:Wendy Pampas mega chunky (10 balls):

Hi Sue,

WOW! I just looked at your "yarn sale goodies" and you got some real treats! That Lopi looked beautiful. I can see why you love the colour! And what INCREDIBLE prices!!!

Obviously, with your "haul", you must have scored some big sales. Is everything marked down the same % or are there different prices for different items? Is there still lots of stuff to choose from? What's the deal with this sale, anyways? They've never done this before that I know of. It sure doesn't look like "old junk" that they're trying to clear out so what gives?

Would love to hear from you, that is, if you can tear yourself away from the knitting you must be doing!

Hi, anonymous! Do I know you?

Anyways, everything was individually marked with prices. I have no idea if there's still lots of stuff, I haven't been back since the day I went.

My suspicion is just that these colours have been discontinued so they can't sell them to local yarn stores any more - so they're selling them cheap to get rid of them. The sale ends on Friday, so if you want to go, you better hustle!
