I went to the back of the store to see if the 2-inch Nu-Foam was in stock, and it was!! So excited! Finally! I started walking towards the cutting counter to see about getting someone to cut it for me. No one was at the counter, but I saw an employee walking towards me, so I asked her how I could go about getting a yard of this item. It's a pretty large box - probably at least 2'x2'x2', so I wasn't sure if they rolled it out back there or carried the whole box to the cutting counter. She offered to get the box and take it to the counter because "We can't cut it back here." Ummm....OK...thanks?
After we got back to the cutting counter, she said "Did you take a number?" SERIOUSLY?? I think there was one other person in the entire store!! I said "No. I just stopped to ask you a question, and we just got back to the counter." She then asked me to take a number and tell her what the number was. OK, first, I looked around to make sure I wasn't on Candid Camera (is that show still around?) or Punk'd. Then I took a number --#97. She then got on the PA system to announce that she was assisting #97 at the cutting counter. OMG!! It felt like a scene from Saturday Night Live with Kristen Wiig playing a fabric store employee! Ha Ha! When I went through the checkout, I was told once again that they had no bags (they've had no bags for quite a while now!l) Twilight Zone?? So I piled all of my smaller items into my big piece of foam and walked all the way back to my car...still feeling like I was on some TV show. What a strange little shopping trip!
Oh....and when I went there again just the other day, (yes, I go there a lot), I noticed the lady in front of me walking out with a pile of fabric with all of her little stuff piled on top, so I was prepared to stuff everything into my purse. It's a good thing that I had my Roxie in Red Kaboo bag that I won on Craftaholics Anonymous. :D
Oh, and here's a pic of what I'm currently working on :)
