How this works.......

This is the de-stashing blog for cleaning out stash--to make room for other stash!

Each item listed has an item number and a price. The price does not include postage or shipping.

I will give that to you after you specify mail, which type, or UPS. Please email me, not leave a comment, if you are interested in purchasing an item.

That way, I will have a time date stamp to honor first come, first served.

If you have not ordered from me before, please include your address!

Have fun shopping and watch us as we have a lot of stuff to get rid of!

I am now accepting paypal!!!!!so please specify when you order if you want to pay by check or paypal! Thanks!

Fridays are mark down day.

Happy shopping!

Clicking on images makes them much larger and easier to see.


Each seller sends items and I cannot be responsible for their accuracy as to whether all the threads are there or if there is enough fabric, etc to complete the projects. I try to make sure that it is right, but cannot guarantee. Thanks for understanding.

Do let me know if you would like to downsize too!

February 19th

I have received a very large downsizing stash from an ANG member no longer able to stitch. I have canvases, canvases with threads, stitch guides, books, threads, stretcher bars, scissors, beads, totes and much, much more that will be listed over the next several weeks. Some of the items have been in storage for quite awhile and, for that reason, might have an odor that sensitive noses would detect. I will enclose instructions on airing out purchases with everything I sell in this auction, just to be on the safe side. That said, most of the items are fine!
