My Mercury Retrograde Shopping Trip

One thing not to do during Mercury retrograde is to buy a new large ticket item. However, the rule bends when it is on sale. As Julie says, Mercury retrograde is the king of a good bargain. That bit of sage advice plus the latest Fabricland flyer for their end of summer 75% off (almost) everything in the store left me weak at the knees and shopping on my holiday. I found GREAT deals!!! Indigo linen, the pale green designer eyelet that coordinates with a skirt I made last year, breezy cottons for skirts in beautiful colors of peach and cream – each for no more than $4-$6/meter (normally $20). I grabbed one more coordinating fabric in a deeper peach shade to go with the skirt and headed to the cutting table

As the clerk went to measure out a bolt of my fabric, I asked for confirmation on the width and the final price. I did that for each one… except that last piece, the one I grabbed at the last moment as it coordinated so well. The bill came to a higher amount than I expected considering it was all so reduced in price. It was only when I got home that I found the red-herring. The last piece of fabric I selected and did not check on the price was a whopping $22/meter. I had bought 2 meters to be sure,  but I was not expecting to sew a $44 garment when all the rest were well under $20. I could only smile. The laws of Mercury retrograde prevailed. I got great deals BUT it is no excuse to slack off! Check the fine print if not the price of EVERYTHING ….before the sale is final!
