That’s it folks!! Get it to me this week or it won’t be included in the sale weekend!!
UPDATE 6/4: I have had a few drop offs of yarn & books, I know there are a lot of you out there that haven’t gotten around to getting your items ready for sale. Please, don’t wait until the last Saturday, June 13th, for drop off. I don’t want to spend 24 hours a day doing the inventory lists, I would REALLY appreciate if you could get items to me sooner rather than later. ALSO TAKE NOTE: Labeling your items with tags, labels, stickers, etc that WILL NOT peel or fall off is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!! Using a white label? Put an added layer of tape over the top to make sure it won’t peel off of the ziploc bag, yarn ball band, etc. Do not hesitate to call or text me to setup a drop off time! 316.633.3217
