Easter Hank Hunt Announcement

Given that this weekend is the Easter Holiday, SIOz will be hosting an Easter Hank Hunt to celebrate.

Initially, I was thinking it would be fun to hunt for plastic Easter eggs (with goodies inside), but after spending a few minutes in the dollar shop, contemplating all that yucky plastic from China, I decided it would be more fun to hunt for special hanks of wool (approx. 20-25 gm goodies) with cool discounts and giveaways on the labels.

Rules for the Easter Hank Hunt:

For each day — Sunday and Monday — there will be limited numbers of Easter hunt hanks. On each of the hanks will be a label stating the amount of discount or a cool freebie (yarn, fibre, needles, a pattern book, or a cool tool).

If a lucky person finds the only 40% discount off (with a minimum purchase of $80.00) on Sunday, there will be another super-duper discount label hank hidden for Monday.  That’s a lot of hand-painted luxury yarn for free, no? For example, if you win the grand discount, you could purchase a shawl kit (usually starting at $80.00) for only $50.00.

The discounts on offer will range from 10% off of a $10.00 purchase to the big discount, specially-labeled hank of %40 off. There will be a few special labels for free Kollage square needles or other kewl stuff. All discounts or freebies require the minimum purchase stated on the label.

Limits:  1 easter hank discount or freebie per customer per day. No cheating and peeking either!

The hank hunt will start at 9:30AM each day, as the market opens quite late for us vendors and it takes a while to set up.  Hanks will be hidden in the stall displays only (not underneath or beside the stall).

In addition to the Easter Hank Hunt, there will be a large stash pile of discounted yarns — there are some real treasures in there (hand-painted yarns, luxury hanks of wool from Italy).  Most of the stash pile is yarns left from commissions, mill ends, and the occasional acquisition overseas.

Please note that super-discounted, market-only purchases are exempt from further discounts applied on the frequent-buyer card.

Happy Hunting, Melissa
