Tent Sale & Fleece Market Tomorrow!

Yes – it’s that time again! That crazy wonderful, let’s clear out as much yarn as possible time of year! The WEBS Annual Tent Sale! Our two day extravaganza kicks off tomorrow at 10am and runs until 5:30pm. We’ll be back open on Sunday at 10am for Tent Part Deux! Steve has put together some incredible deals and steals under the tent, we’ll have garments for sale, many books marked down 30% PLUS all of the anniversary sale yarns are still on sale!

Tomorrow has some extra fun excitement built in. First, we’ll be recording our weekly radio show/podcast, Ready, Set, Knit! LIVE from the tent!! This will be the second time we’ve done a live show. If you live in the area or are on your way to the sale, tune into WHMP 1400 or 1240 at 9am! We’ll also be interviewing a SUPER special guest! We’ve got a knitting rock star in the house this weekend!

We have our entire WEBS team working tomorrow – we’ll have SEVEN registers running (5 in the store and 2 in the tent). In the store, the three regular registers will be running, plus three more in front of the windows. There will be ONE FEEDER LINE FOR ALL FIVE REGISTERS. Every register will have one person ringing and one person bagging. We should be able to keep up pretty well. We have staff on the store floor, in the tent and in the warehouse. We have a team of folks dedicated to just restocking the tent and the store.

In addition to the sale itself, Saturday always features our Annual Fleece Market! We have 12 local farmers/shepherds coming this year and they will be selling their fleeces, yarns, etc. I think we may even have a couple of alpacas in the house! I love alpacas, so this would particularly thrill me :)

WEBS Beads will also be participating at their location down the street. They have their own tent with special deals. Plus, we have a ton of new inventory! Alison and I attended a show last Saturday and brought back so many new items – more pearls, more semi-precious, more faceted semi-precious strands, wood, bone and porcelain. We also just added gorgeous lampwork beads from World Peas. We have beads and larger focal beads PLUS some goddesses! Be sure to stop into the bead store if you come by this weekend! They will be open both days as well.

We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend!

    Cascade 220 mis-spun as a DK for $20 a bag (ten skeins) PLUS three days of Cat Bordhi. Never, ever, have I enjoyed a tent sale so very, very much.

    Happy Birthday! (because singing and candles during a live radio broadcast is never, ever enough.)

    Um, yeah, it is (except in terms of presents – none of the above is a replacement for presents)
