The Joann store in San Ramon is closing, I found out by accident today. They are consolidating their stores into another Super Store in Dublin, the girl at the counter said, and are trying to reduce the amount of merchandise before the move. The Vogue, McCalls, Butterick, and Burda patterns are, get ready for this, 4 for $2. These are all current patterns and there are still lots left, though a lot have already been sold. It was rainy this morning and for over an hour I was the only one in the pattern department going through the Vogue patterns in the cabinets. How great was that! I also had fun buying some Burda patterns which are usually never on sale, and are too expensive for me. I ended up with a hugely long sales receipt. You know how they put at the end how much money you saved? Here’s the best receipt ever:
That’s what happens when you buy a bunch of $30 Vogue patterns for 50 cents each.
