Today, being Black Friday, I woke up at 4 am and braved the shopping crowds so I could start bright and early at 5 am.
I’ll spare you all the details of my expedition – besides, you never know what relatives might be reading right now and hearing about their gifts! I did make it over to Joanns (one is conveniently located in a mall) – what a mess! There were three people working the tables (I got there about 8:30ish), but there were women with their carts still piled high. I decided there was no fabric that I needed that badly and settled on a new water-soluable marking pen, a teflon foot, and a zipper. I tried going back 45 minutes later, but the looked just as long. Afterwards, I went to Hancock Fabrics – ah, much shorter lines (a lot fewer sales)! I bought some of their $1.99 fleece in brown which I intend on making some large stuffed gingerbread men like the ones I made a few weeks ago and some black & grey snakeskin pleather and notions for the La Rue Messenger Bag. I managed to find everything for it except the G-Ring clamps – does anyone know where I could get these (especially in a black nickle color) and what exactly do they look like?
What did everyone else buy today?
