As I've written in previous posts I've had some good luck at Joann's lately. Today I hit the jackpot!
I try to head over at least once a month so I can use my 40% off coupons and have them scan my flier so I keep getting them. We don't have one in our town so I have to go about 10 miles away. Since my husband and son are off fishing today I decided to take a quick run over and see what I could find.
I always hit the sales racks first. In this store there are several areas so I wander over and do my typical scrounging around. In one of the bins I caught sight of the Omnigrid brand. Now, I'm always telling people to memorize those brand names and know your fabric patterns because you never know where a bargain may be lurking. In this case I was glad I spotted that Omnigrid logo.
I pulled this out of a stack of odds and ends and nearly fell over when I saw that the price was only $4.97. I had to double check, thinking that it must be $14.97, but no, it was only $4.97. Now, those of you who've purchased arcylic templates know how expensive they are. I have a couple of sets of squares and triangles and they were about $20 for each set of only a few templates. This set has 15, including all different kinds of shapes I don't have. And they're especially made for rotary cutting. I can't believe my luck!
Of course I scrounged around for more but this was the only set they had. I would have liked to have two, one to leave at home and one to put in my travel kit, but I can't complain.
As I always do as soon as I got home I went online to check for an original price and the first place I looked had the same set for $31.99, so I saved 64%. Yippee!! The best part is that it's something that I will actually use.
I'm not sure if this was a nationwide markdown or if I just got lucky but if you have a Joann's nearby you might want to check it out. You never know!
