Who was de-stashing on Saturday? Well not this young mom, whose precious cargo was not part of the destashing!
It was a blur of fibery activity at the Blue Moon Fiber Arts De-stash sale!
Everything was for sale: Cones and skeins...STR, Koi, books, grab bags...you name it...it was in the barn...for a short time anyway!
Most shoppers were well behaved. I said "most", not all! :)
Once the bags of stash were acquired
there would typically be a a period of deliberation...a time to ponder and reassess whether all of it was really needed. And as we all know (Stella, you will learn...) NEED, is not a valid part of the deliberation equation. Trunk size is valid. Suitcase size is valid. Hence, if the stash made it to the deliberation table
it made it to the check out table, where the gleeful exchange of cash, check or credit card was the next order of business!
A great time was had by all!! Julie, Iris and I were ogling each other's acquisitions. Note Iris's superhero tight grip on that skein :) Not pictured as they were too busy
madly grabbing politely reaching for skeins of yarn were Jen and Kevin, Michelle, and Carrie. Also spotted were Courtney, Sheryl, Tiana, and Susan!!! And for some extra unexpected fun I ran into Carrie (aka Irishgirlieknits) from We Do Not Have a Knitting Problem. Hi Carrie! Always fun to see you!
There was some concern that I would not survive the mad rush of shoppers! Alas, I survived intact! I was not trampled with only a wayward tuft of pink remaining! :) :)
