Weaving – Loom Shuttles…

Shop Early And Shop Often?

You may have read us saying that before, this morning is a perfect example of why. DBNY Bargain Basement Yarn Sale

As we were preparing today’s Daily Deals mailer, we marked down and moved over 100 selections of yarn into the Bargain Basement. The first customer bought a lot of them, over $600 worth. We’ll be marking down more yarns throughout the day.

The DBNY Process…

Just in case you haven’t read this before, we sell yarn and accessories that have been discontinued, overstocked, sometimes there are seconds or mill ends from manufacturers, unsold inventory from shops and importers – all kinds of places. We price new selections at 25% to 50% off retail. If those new yarn selections don’t sell quickly, we mark them down and move them to the Bargain Basement at 66% to 75% off retail, and then we often add more discounts on top of that. It’s not unusual to pay less than wholesale at DBNY.

Precious Metal Threads

While going through the truckload of items from Epic Yarn we came across boxes and boxes of threads, ribbons and cords made from precious metals.

Precious Metal Thread Project

This includes very rare and hard to find vintage ecclesiastical threads, cords and ribbons spun from precious metals such as gold, copper and silver over silk cores. Similar embellishments –if you can find them– are sold by the inch. Ours are listed in lots sold by the ounce, spool or group of related items.

These gold, silver and other metal threads are traditionally used on religious vestments and more. One customer sent us a photo of her FO.

“I have a tiny little hoard pile (it isn’t possible to actually hoard the stuff in hoarder quantity! It’s like good bead shopping: “You spent WHAT on that tiny bag of stuff and you’re calling it a steal?!”) of ecclesiastical trims I keep as a secret stash of costume and jewelry instant-awesome, and… I could have fainted when I peeked at the site tonight.”

As these materials are made of metal they will oxidize and acquire a patina that can only come with age. Please be aware that this does not happen evenly or consistently. We think, and most customers agree, this enhances the beauty of the product. Please consider this when you make a purchase as all products are not returnable.

USPS Media Mail & DBNY

USPSCrystal, our shipping manager, just got back from the local post office. She wanted to meet with the local Post Master but unfortunately she wasn’t available.

We had a recent experience with the post office. A customer let us know that her local USPS delivery person presented her with a package from us, and a COD bill for $11 and change. Interesting since we do not use COD as a payment method.

You can read through the emails and letter from the local Post Master about this. We’ll let you know what happens next.
