I’ve been known to go overboard when I find a good deal on something. Anyone who takes a peek into my jewelry supply storage area would agree. I have tons of beads still strung how I purchased them with sale tags still affixed.
However, with wool, I’ve had to be more selective since I do most of my purchasing online. See, there is a shipping cost involved with buying online and that usually stops me from emptying my PayPal account on fiber. This morning I found a solution to that. I headed out west to Tulsa… well, a town just outside of Tulsa (Kerryville?) for the Fiber Christmas in July festival. I walked around… picked over things… took notes… and then went crazy.
One vendor had a fabu price on dyed wool and mohair locks so I kind of did most of my spending there. I also bought some flax, sari silk remnants, silk scraps, and tons, tons, tons of sparkly goodness. I did stay within my budget and I was able to get everything into my house upon my return in one trip. So I didn’t really go overboard as this post is titled… but close to it 🙂
