This seems a bit like deja vu!, but Big W are clearing their shelves of their entire sean sheep yarn range again...it's marked down to 50c at the Noarlunga SA store...still a dollar at Marion, but I'm sure that will change soon  Smiley (last year it got as low as 20c) Grin

My aunt sent me a couple of balls of Sean Sheep yarn but I wanted to get some more of the same type but none of the local Big Ws have any left.  Cry

Oh no!    Embarrassed  I bought so much last time it wasn't funny.  I have barely knit any of it.

Well I went and had a look at Big W, MacArthur Square (Brisbane CBD) and the Sean Sheep has been removed from the shelves.  I did a lap of the store and did not find any bargain bins of yarn about, so it has either been thrown out the back or sent to another store to be put on sale.  Undecided  Don't know what is going on there, last year it was on sale for weeks in the regular display on shelf, before they were all taken out of the shelves and put in bins throughout the store.  It did take them an awful long time to move it all, I guess they are trying a different tact this season.   Huh
