August Annual Tent Sale
I’ve just finished a week of working at the Spinrite Factory Outlet Tent Sale in Listowel Ontario. Home of Spinrite Yarns which are the makers of Bernat, Phentex, Sugar’n Cream, Patons and Caron Yarns.
The factory is just in the back yard of this store and that’s why this sale is always at this location. It just makes sense. Keep the costs low and the yarnies from everywhere just show up to get a deal and a half.
Spinrite Factory Outlet is a not so kept secret but if you don’t know a friend and just getting involved in knitting and crochet, you may know know about this place. I only found out about this place in September 2010. These sales run annually and have been for over 20 years. Spinrite clears out their discontinued and/or way overstocked items at the tent sale for a fraction of normal retail prices. You will see everyone with heaping size recycle bags loaded full taking advantage of the yarn being cleared out.
In October 2013, Spinrite Factory Outlet opened up the first ever ETENT where people from Canada and/or the USA could order their yarn online. This means, the tent sale is year around and can be purchased at any times. The advantage is that you don’t need to wait for August to take advantage and get steeply discounted yarn.
More and more people are ordering their yarn online to save the trip and gas money. Every week, Spinrite has some sort of promotion going on. From Buy 3 get 1 Free to free shipping to featured discounted yarns. In my opinion, is becoming one of the top best websites in North America to order yarn from. Remember, with discounted yarns, you don’t always get the choice of the full colour lines and stock is limited. However, like me, you may be creative and think of something amazing to make.
The August Tent Sale lasts 2 weeks each year. I was only there for the 1st week. I took lots of photos and some great candid videos. Here’s some links to enjoy.
