A Big Sale in Lansing, MI

My friend Rae is an amazing woman. She is 26 years old and she runs a lovely, eastside yarn shop, Rae’s Yarn Boutique. She is half my age, but when I get stuck with a knitting problem, she can always help me through it. She is kind and talented, and I am grateful that she is my friend (and my boss, several days a week).

Not only that, she purchased the building where the shop currently is located, about a year and a half ago. I may never be that together, at any age.

When she bought the building, the seller made false statements about the roof. This roof is so inaccessible it pretty much needs a cherry picker or a helicopter to access it, and is a flat roof on an early-1900’s brick commercial building. It needs regular tending.

So, now the roof leaks when it rains. And Rae is having a “When it Rains, it Pours… in the Shop” sale to bring in the cashflow it will take to repair it. It looks like all of the yarn and spinning/felting fiber is at least 10% off, and some of it is 20% or 40% off.

And she has some amazing deals on spinning wheels! It is unusual to see a sale on wheels, so if you are thinking of getting one and are in the area, I highly recommend you check it out.

Rae posted a blog entry to detail the specifics. I will be at the shop at least a few hours Friday, but the sale is Friday through Sunday. Hours Friday are 11-6, Saturday 11-5, Sunday 11-3.

    Lynn, Please have Rae consult a lawyer. In New York state, where I live, the buyer has legal rights for several years after the purchase when the seller lies. I know that each state is different, but it truly would be worth looking into this matter!
    Good luck to her!
