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.

How To Crochet Autumn Leaves

crochet yarn leavesWant to make some beautiful yarn decorations for your table, or anywhere?

It’s easy…

First, buy some yarn from Discontinued Brand Name Yarn…

Then follow these instructions from CraftyStylish…

Arm Knitting

 


Arm Knit Cowl PatternEver knitted or crocheted without needles or hooks? Gotta admit it sounds and looks interesting.

We’re liquidating yarn stock for Berroco and they have several mesh/novelty/scarf yarns well suited for hand knitting. And, since they offer a free shawl pattern it’s hard to resist.

Berroco Lacey Yarn saleYou can find Berroco Lacey Yarn at DBNY and then download the free Arm Knit Cowl pattern from Berroco and you’re all set.

In 30 minutes, after you get the yarn, you could have a new cowl / scarf.

Personal Delivery of Yarn

Karen Holmes from Massachusetts has decided enough is, in fact, more than enough! After amassing more yarn than any person could possibly knit with, Karen figured it was time for some serious de-stashing, and what better way to do it than sell it all on consignment through DBNY!

Over the years we have sold literally millions of skeins, books, needles and accessories that have come from all over the world.

 

 

 

 

However, today is the FIRST TIME EVER that we have actually had a co-signee come to our warehouse and hand deliver a car load of yarn to us. We are located in the far north east of Vermont (only about 20 miles from Canada!) so it’s not so easy for a lot of people to get up here. But our friend Karen Homes made the trip and with a lighter load it’s time to do some traveling!

It’s time to hit the road!

 

From the Green Mountains of Vermont, she will be heading east to the White Mountains of NH for some de-stash therapy at a very nice spa.

 

To Karen we say, “Good luck on your voyage, we hope you have the time of your life!” and to you, the customer we say, “Get ready for some more great yarn, books and accessories from a very lovely lady.”

It’s Easy Being Green

ReStore

We’ve started our latest LYS / Craft Store Liquidation Sale. This store’s inventory was donated to the Williston, VT ReStore – part of Habitat for Humanity. 50% of the sale of every item goes to ReStore.

Jonathon Goldhammer, Habitat for Humanity ReStore Manager for the Williston, VT location copied us on an email he sent to Chris Mullennix, National ReStore Logistics Specialist. Both the original email and reply are below.

We’re proud to be working with this great organization. Habitat’s mission is “…to build simple, decent, affordable and energy-efficient homes for low-income working families in north western Vermont. We have been building since 1984 and recently dedicated our 65th Habitat home, with the support of volunteers and donors.”

“More than 750 Habitat ReStores across the country sell new and used home improvement materials to fund affordable housing in their communities. Our inventories depend on the generosity of individuals, contractors, and businesses who have quality, usable items to donate. Anyone can shop at Habitat ReStores to save money on home goods and building materials as well as reuse materials that otherwise might go to waste.”

At DBNY, look for items (lots of the new stock) with “ccs” in the beginning of the model number. Half of the proceeds of the sales of these items goes directly to Green Mountain Habitat through the Williston, VT ReStore.

You can help too, buy ReStore items here at DBNY, visit your local ReStore, donate and volunteer with Habitat. If a little company like DBNY can do it, anyone can.

Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity & DBNY

We don’t sing our own praises too much here at DBNY but we’ve entered into a new business relationship that we want to share.

We recently donated some coned yarn to the Williston, VT ReStore – part of the Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity. While they were picking up the yarn we learned that they were going to clean out and liquidate a craft store in Charlotte, VT.

One thing led to another and this weekend some of the yarn girls and guys are volunteering to clean up, sort and inventory the store. As Jonathon Goldhammer, manager of the Williston ReStore put it, this will be an overwhelming task that needs to be completed in 3 days.

A good portion of the inventory, fabric and related materials will be sold through the ReStores located in Vermont, there are more that 750 nationwide.

Many of the other craft items, including all kinds of kits, doll making, needlecraft, birdhouses, applique, rubber stamps and much, much more will be sold by DBNY. We’ll also be offering box lots of yarn, buttons, zippers, beads, etc. online at Discontinued Brand Name Yarn.

Be sure to look for the sale in the coming weeks.
