Bargain Time … and a Contest Coming Soon

It hit a sweltering 106 degrees yesterday here in Oregon. I darn near melted! Despite the heat, my mind is already racing ahead and planning for the Fall. To begin making room on the shelves for plenty of new yarn in the Fall, I think it’s about time that I get rid of some of the orphan skeins remaining from this past winter.

That means that it’s time for 99 cent starting price auctions on eBay! I’ve listed four of these auctions today. Each skein is a half pound of either Alpaca/Wool or Mohair/Wool and normally sells for $21.99 in my eBay store. Comparable full retail on this yarn is in the neighborhood of $32. Click on the photos at the bottom of this posting to go directly to the auction pages at eBay.


These 99 cent auctions are always great fun! Sometimes the buyer gets an absolutely fantastic deal and other times a particular item catches the attention of buyers and a bidding war ensues. At this time of year, I wouldn't be surprised if these sell at very, very low prices, so get in on the action while you can! Whatever the result, I always enjoy watching the auctions progress. One way or another, I need to make room on the shelves and so these items will sell with no reserve price!

I also wanted to let you know that I heard your comments about the possibility of a contest here on the Fearless Fiber blog and the wheels are already turning in my mind. Be on the lookout for a posting within the next several days announcing our first Fearless Fibers blog contest.


Let the fun begin!

I'm not sure if I envy you the hot weather. I am on vacation this week, and it has been raining. Actually, pouring. And it won't stop until the weekend, darn it! How can I work on my tan if it's raining? I know, I know, tanning is bad for me......
