It's An Ill Wind

What used to be the Co-Operative Department Store in town was taken over by Vergo just before Christmas last year; for the last 6 to 8 weeks or so, Vergo has had 'we are in administration' posters all over its windows.

Sales have been running constantly, starting at 10% off retail price. Today, the day before they shut the doors permanently, it is 70% off. All the fixtures and fittings are for sale also.

So I popped in today, and used up some more of my overdraft in buying the last remaining ball of Sirdar Blur, and a knitting bag ....well, it's not a bag exactly, but I don't know what it's called. I've wanted one for ages - for no real reason - but refused to pay full price as I think that they aren't worth £19.99, for a bit of pretty material and a few bits of wood.

The yarn and bag should have cost me £23.34. I paid £6.99. I love a bargain.


  1. Oh so purty! Quite Cath Kidson. Is that right, do I mean Cath Kidson? I'm a bit challenged when it comes to pretty flowery things.

    Whatcha doing with the wool?

  2. Similar :-) Nothing planned as yet for this yarn ...but at 70% off, couldn't resist :-)


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
