Evolving Stash (Parking Lot Customer Exchange/Sale)Why do we have stash (a personal accumulation of yarn & fiber for future projects, for collection, or just because)? Most of us do and we love them. We also know that our stashes constantly evolve. We share with those we bring into the fold, we trade, we acquire new when we spot something we can't live without, friends and family gift us stash, we donate to schools & other organizations, and so on. Yarns come and go and we love every minute of the journey.
In honor of the stashes all over the world, we at Tempe Yarn have come up with what we think could be a fun event - something to help your stash evolve and at the same time help out our friends at Ronald McDonald House.
On Saturday, April 25th from 8 am to 10 am we will be hosting a Parking Lot Customer Exchange/Sale of pre-owned Fiber related items.
Here's How It Will Work:
If you want to lighten up your stash, pre-register (by calling Tempe Yarn at 480 557 9166) to get a space to set up a table for your stash reduction. You will be responsible for pricing, selling, etc. You will need to bring your own table, set up at 7:45 am and take down at 10 am sharp. We will be asking for a $10 donation, to be collected when you pre-register, to give to Ronald McDonald House in exchange for your having a space to sell your stuff. Again, you must pre-register with TYF.
If you want to acquire additional stash, then show up on Saturday at 8 am to be one of the first to check out opportunities to add to your collection.
Why Are We Doing This?
We are doing this for you, our customers, because we think it could be a fun way for you to "swap" stashes around and a great excuse to organize and review all the wonderful yarns in your lives. The bonus here is that all the "table" donations will be given to Ronald McDonald House. In addition, we will have a table set aside that day to collect small items attendees may wish to donate to RMH. For a list of items they need click here.
