I cannot even believe of what I am about to admit… During last week’s visit at Spinrite Factory Outlet, I turned into a raging yarn fanatic!
I was stationed beside the cash. When the store opened, there was a few boxes of Bernat Mosaic Yarn that is normally priced between $6 – 7 per ball. In the box, 1 bag of 3 was only $9. At certain points of the day, these two boxes turned into a football huddle and there was a lot of grabbing. It is one of my most favourite brands by Bernat.
I kind of laughed at it watching everyone get crazy. At some point in the day, I heard the Spinrite Team say they are nearly out of yarn in the truck. You might as well just slapped me in the face and kicked me in the crotch! My brain went from being calm to absolute yarn insanity!
The Spinrite Team were constantly topping off these boxes in dumping the yarn as people were diving in before the balls could hit the pile. It was crazy!
I knew people were picking and knew the colours were winding down. A bus load of 30 people arrived and this bin turned into another football huddle. It was like a shark feeding exhibit. The gloves are off and people are grabbing, snatching and stashing their jumbo garbage bags. To hell with reason… I’m going to get into this action!
Though I had reasoned with myself that in the morning that I didn’t need the yarn. My brain was seeing yarn balls, discounts and my car stashed with yarn… Mr Mikey greeter turned into Mikey the Yarn Hoarding Fool! I ran and grabbed a bag and started stashing as much yarn into a garbage bag! There were people grabbing and I was grabbing. There was a lot of people saying stuff but all I heard in my brain was “MINE MINE MINE MINE, put that down woman! It’s Mine!!!!” I’m surprised I just didn’t jump into the boxes and pull out my crochet hook to fend these women off!
I thought I was done when I could barely lift my bag but my brain is looking at the price tag of the bag of 3 for $9 and you could get 1 Bag Free with every 3 you get! So I thought I would get even more greedier and start ramming my bag some more… geesh the bag isn’t ripping… it must mean it can hold more!!! I became the yarn rammer! I know the yarn will never be that price again.
By the time I had lost control and checked myself out… I had spent $125 bucks! I am like Whoa as my brain starts to come back into reality! But then the cashier says to me, “You just saved a ton of money!” It would work out that if I would have paid full retail price, I would have paid $375 plus tax! I thought to myself, “I am the queen of the yarn! That’s what I am talk’n about!”
I don’t know what hit me… I seen people grabbing and my brain said get over there and start grabbing too just because they are! It’s so crazy as I am usually more reasonable but I think when it comes to yarn sales! Better stay out of my way because I will throw down the crochet hook and start ramming my cart full!
