I need a tiny vent…
I have a lot of stash.
I have so much lot of stash that I have some for sale on Ravelry and Etsy.
I need the real estate and I need to not have to move all this again. Something that will be happening sooner than later.
So when someone wants to buy a skein or two, I’m really happy.
What makes me unhappy is the (many) times that I will get an inquiry, all enthusiastic-like, be asked for a postage quote (find box and packing, weigh, measure, or walk to post office), send the quote, only to have the person email back with ” Oh, I didn’t expect to pay that much!” (referring to either the cost of the yarn – which is clearly indicated in each stash post or the postage – I don’t make these up, that’s what it costs).
Most of my yarn for sale are one offs, ooaks, limited editions or discontinued, highly sought after skeins or colourways.
I’m not having a garage sale. I’m selling gorgeous yarn.
