Lone Star Mercantile

I said I wasn't going to do it but I could not resist the urge today. I pass the quilt shop Lone Star Mercantile all the time now that they moved to Fuquay Varina from the fairgrounds in Raleigh. I have so much fabric and patterns and everything else that I did not want to be tempted by all the pretties. But today I could not resist. Boy that was a mistake, well bad for my bank account anyway.

The shop is gorgeous. I should have asked to take pictures to show you but I was too much in awe to think of it. The employees are wonderful, a lot of them I know from when I worked with them at the quilt shop in Apex.

I joined the WOW club which, if you are not familiar is, here I copied it from their site "10% discount on everything you purchase (excluding Johnston Benchworks furniture and antiques),  20% discount for your birthday!  Discount pricing on kits and projects. Special projects and fun surprises available only to club members throughout the year!  Free piece of wool or fabric each month to add to your stash!."

I purchased a few items, a little kit, 2 fat quarters and 3 sale fat quarters. Don't they look yummy?!?!
I will have to limit my visits to once a month I think though because there are just too many lovely things to get. I was so impressed.

For those who are not local, check out their blog and selling blog. Just click on the link below the pictures.

I am going to play with my new goodies. I hope you are having a great week and finding a little stitching time.

I went there the opening weekend, it's terrific to have a new shop. And very very tempting. Maybe we'll run into each other soon there!
