Super excited!

Ok. Bit of randomness today. But I'm so excited by my super deal today that I had to share.

My local Joanns is closing. And I'm stoked about it. Normally this would cause me some major bummage, but not this time. You see, it is honestly the smallest store I've ever seen. You can barely fit a cart down the isle, so if you're trying to pick out quilt fabric, you've re-created rush hour down I-5 in LA. But, in just a short 5 more weeks, they will move across the street and like quintuple their space or something!!! A VERY needed upgrade.

Anyway. Everything is on super sale. I needed some cross stitch stuff, so I thought I'd see what they had left.
Things were pretty picked over, so I only managed to get one color. And then I wondered over to the home decorating fabric.

Oh. Wow.

Everything was on sale, 40% off. And then an additional 75% (!!!) off of that. You did have to buy the whole bolt, but still. I've really thought about re-covering my $10 wing back chair, but it's so low on the priority list because of the price of fabric. But I got this beautiful sage green fabric, for less than $10! I think there should be just enough to do my chair.

I also found the first fabric for my boy's room too. And I let my kids pick out some silly buttons (for only a quarter, you would too.)

So here's my loot:
All for 15 bucks. I saved over $70. And I am super happy now.


  1. You are such a great shopper. Your family is so blessed to have such a creative wife and mom. Love you all.

  2. Can't wait to see how the chair turns out! (you know how I love a bargain!)

  3. Way to work the bargain shopping! Post pictures when the chair is done!

  4. I got some good bargains there a week or so ago too. And I am super excited for the new store and it's hugeness!

  5. Oh how I love, and miss Joann's. I could spend hours in our grotty, local shop in Vermont.
