Tax Free Weekend!

Share Button

This weekend is Tax Free Weekend here in Massachusetts. All purchases of taxable goods under $2500 will save the standard 5% sales tax! We are fortunate that yarn is not taxed here, but there are lots of items that are! Things like looms, spinning wheels, knitting needles, books, bags and other accessories. That means if you’ve been thinking about purchasing a spinning wheel, this weekend you’ll save the 5% sales tax. On some of these larger ticket items, we could be talking about enough savings to cover the gas to get here, or even lunch!

But wait! You know Steve and I like to make things extra exciting so in addition to saving 5% on the sales tax, we’ll also take 10% off the original price! Now we’re talking some serious savings!

Remember, this applies to in-store, in-stock purchases only. For those of you considering a loom, this applies only to a single purchase with a price under $2,500.

This is a great opportunity to get a jump start on some holiday shopping. Think about getting that special knitter a set of 24″ Addi Turbo circs in the complete size range – now that would be a GREAT gift and you’d save quite a bit of money (approximately $50.00 savings!). Okay, so maybe that’s a bit extravagant, but you get the idea!

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow – it’s going to be a great day!
