Just Like The Good Ol' Days...

Our garage looks like a shop this weekend. I'm selling a considerable amount of my knitting and crochet supplies to create more elbow room in my studio. It feels like the old days when I had my needlework shop, Stitches in Wisconsin. Perhaps not as polished as my shop used to be, but definitely as well-stocked!
I have cotton yarn, wools and many high quality blends, along with sock yarns and a few bulky weights, too.
I have crates, boxes and plastic containers full of books. Knitting and crochet patterns and lots of techniques within their covers. I'm moving out about 150 books. (Don't ask how this happens. I'm sick, I tell you! I have no idea!)
Lots and lots of books. If you're looking for a specific knitting or crochet book or leaflet, send me an email. I just might have it, and I'm happy to send out anything that you might want for actual shipping costs.
There are also sewing patterns that I've pulled to share for a song (25¢ each!) and Amy Butler patterns and fabrics.

I'm "open for business" again today, and I've been asked to do this again next weekend, which I will.  In addition, I'll be listing up many of the items on eBay to make the items I have after the sale is over available online.

I'm looking forward to getting back into the studio. You know, my fingers ache when I'm not working on something! I need to get back to my Farmer's Wife blocks! What are you doing this weekend?

Wow, you're making some shoppers very happy this weekend Donna. That's one of the neatest garages I've ever seen. And are those screened garage doors? Hope you have tons of success with the sale.

I'd feel like I died and went into heaven walking into your garage. It definitely looks like a shop and I know that I'd walk out with an armful!

Donna, I wish I lived by you I would have bought both boxes of the Tahki yarn you have for sale.

Sounds like an exciting garage to visit! Hmmm, if only I lived closer!

Oh how I wish I lived next door to you! What fun to look through all those books and patterns! I knitted a sweater 30+ years ago. I love the style of it so much, I would love to knit another one. I have looked for that pattern everywhere. I can not remember the pattern maker, if I could I would ask you to look and see if it was in those patterns!!!
