…should not be confused with the on-line shop of the same name. The difference is in the ‘s’. Do you see that the shop that we went to has an ‘s’ on the Quarter, as in plural Quarters!! So plural it was…we made sure that we bought more than one of everything! haha
So YESTERDAY I showed you our first stop…Grand Country Quilt Shop…where Kim and I spent an hour enjoying their sale. On the way to The Fat Quarters Shop we assured the guys that we had completed our major shopping and would only need a quick look at the next shop..because there was no sale happening there. Half an hour would do the trick…
Here’s the front entrance to the shop…see the chalkboard…advertising their SALE!! OH CRAP!! Kim and I looked at each other…ooooohhh my… BUT we were up for the challenge…high fived ‘ers all around, fist taps and belly bumps…and we entered the shop…ON A MISSION… !!
The sale was 25% off the whole shop with 40% off ANYTHING CHRISTMAS!! We were two quilters possessed! So while you look at the pictures imagine Kim and I scooting around the shop like chickens with our heads cut off!! 15 minutes….GO!!
These are bolts of WOOL…on SALE!!
WHEW…I see Kim…and she’s at the till…with a HUGE smile on her face and we were right on 15 minutes…a world record achieved!! Can you hear the “SCORE” times TWO coming out of the shop!! Kim found her Downton Abbey fabric at 25% off and lots of other things…and I was clicking my heels as well!!
START THE CAR!! START THE CAR! Yup the limo was waiting at the curb…smiles from the boys because we were on time! All was right with the world!! Now it’s on to lunch!!
So up next…we were off to Oceanside…a seaside town not far from the Fat Quarter Shop…where we found a restaurant with an outside courtyard…and this view!! Yup…hard to take I know!! Don and Kim treated us to a thank you lunch…which really wasn’t necessary…but very thoughtful!
And man, those victory burgers tasted good!!
As for the loot…you will have to wait for tomorrow to peak inside my bags…I am such a tease!! I have to milk this trip for all it’s worth because no sewing been going on around here!! Maybe today…
Thanks for coming along…hope you enjoyed both shops…trust me, they were both WAY BETTER IN REAL LIFE!!~P
