So, I found out this morning that the Purple Purl is having a sale. Specifically, they're having their "We don't want to count the Inventory Blowout!"
Details are here, as well, but in summary:
25% off most of their regular stuff. One day only (Sat, August 10th). Some stuff will be more then 25%, but you'll have to go in-store to find out. They also comment that their seating won't be available during this time (I'm now imagining armchairs full of yarn!)
Oh, and if you collect their reward points, you can't redeem them during the sale, but you'll still collect them.
I'm intending to go. I don't have oodles of money right now, (new job, yes, but no pay until August 31st just due to how their payroll works) but I still want to see if I can get a couple of skeins of Tanis for some more Christmas knitting. If I'm very lucky with my yarn budget, I might even get a couple of skeins of Spud and Chloe Fine for a pair of gloves I've been planning for myself.
Since I usually do try to buy yarn on sale, this is perfect.
Hope to see some familiar faces there!
P.S. If you are in the Toronto area and haven't been to the Purple Purl before, you really should. It's actually quite a nice place, and their yarn selection is awesome. They're right on the Queen streetcar, too, (or you can take a bus down from Donlands Subway) so they're not too hard to get to. I don't drive, so I can't speak to the street parking, sorry!
