NYC PSA: Suss Design Soho Closing Sale

My creation

Um, in case you haven't heard yet, Suss Design in Soho is having a closing sale. It's...

70% off all Suss yarn
50% off other yarn
30% off books
$40 handknitted sweaters
$2 Suss needles

and a bunch of other deals on everything including fixtures. Go there now.

Retail Therapy, part 2. After a nearly-complete morning of bar study, I just bought more than 30 skeins of yarn, four sets of nice wooden needles, a glass vase, and a handknitted angora sweater from Suss, all for just over $100 and broke my stash rule (that is, no yarn without a pre-planned project) in a major way. I'll show you a picture later. You're gonna be STUNNED. Click the image up top to check out the haul.

Update: if anyone is going to the sale today or tomorrow and would be willing to pick up one more skein of the blue angora and one more skein of the orange angora, please leave a comment letting me know... I'd be very grateful! Found someone - thanks!

wow, 30 skeins and all that other stuff for close to $100 is the best deal ever! can't wait to see it all!

mmmmm, gonna have to make a trip there tomorrow i think!

Posted by: gleek at July 13, 2006 3:59 PM

Wow, that place didn't last long. I'm not surprised though, it lacked the charm of the other NYC yarn shops. But a deal's a deal. I must go.

Best of luck to you on the bar - you've made it to the home stretch!!

This sounds like a very sensible course of action and I'm sure you've learned how to defend your stash rule breaking in a court of law ;)

Posted by: abi at July 13, 2006 5:03 PM

Now that's what I call retail therapy!

Posted by: carol at July 13, 2006 5:34 PM

I was already stunned when you posted the details of the sale earlier today. If I still lived in CT I would have gone there, right then. Kind of hard from Iowa though! :) I'll live vicariously through don't forget to share some photos. As far as stash rules go... don't feel guilty. Sales like this rarely happen.

Posted by: Liz at July 13, 2006 5:41 PM

Looking forward to the photos...

Posted by: Aimee at July 13, 2006 5:51 PM

*drool* My yarn shops don't have sales like this. EVER.

Ummmm, WOW!! Haul. of. the. century.

Way to go! It's all beautiful!

Posted by: jillian at July 13, 2006 11:27 PM

I have an off topic question but I was hoping you could help me, I'm wondering how you create taht link to your photoset in flickr, I'm dying to add one to my page, LOL!

Thanks in advance!

P.S. I'm so jealous of your purchases!

Posted by: Stacey at July 13, 2006 11:27 PM

That is hardly breaking a stash rule - it is rescuing yarn from a sad future of not being on sale!

Posted by: Kate at July 14, 2006 1:07 AM

Holy cripes, that's an awesome haul! I probably would have bought even more! And a handknit angora sweater?! *swoon* Absolutely beautiful.

Posted by: Cookie at July 14, 2006 2:54 AM

Do you know how long the sale is going to last? I am going to be in NYC sometime between July 18th and August 22nd but we haven't worked out the exact details yet! I would love to go there!

Your stuff looks great - you deserved it after all the hard work you have been doing.

Posted by: Sarah at July 14, 2006 4:44 AM

WOW that is some haul. Very well done even if you did break a rule or two in the meantime :)

Posted by: stinkerbell at July 14, 2006 8:38 AM

i'm sorry, but you totally deserve a little retail therapy, especially if it's a great deal like that!
btw, is the iriver clix compatible w/ itunes? my computer seems to destroy ipods, but all my music is in itunes.

Posted by: melissa at July 14, 2006 8:46 AM

Oh, my goodness, I cannot believe what beautiful yarn you bought, and for such a low price! Not only do you deserve it since you've been working so hard, but how could you possible think of passing that up?

Posted by: Charity at July 14, 2006 11:37 AM

I wish I lived in NYC. I wish I had money to spend on yarn. I wish I knew why they were closing the store. Tell me it isn't that there are too many yarn shops. Please.

Posted by: Julia at July 14, 2006 12:00 PM

What a nice haul and bargain! The orange and blue yarn is especially fabulous.

Posted by: Steph at July 14, 2006 12:13 PM

Oh yeah, now that's more like it! I can't believe you got all that for such a great price. Amazing.

Posted by: Stephanie at July 14, 2006 12:16 PM

that blue and orange is my favourite combination of colors! It looks sooo yummy, so what's the name of that yarn? Suss Angora? Too bad I am not in NY, I would go mad in that store =) Great bargain! My congrats! Very thoughtful stash enhancement considering the price! Cannot wait to see the outcome.. more FO's!!

Posted by: Olga at July 14, 2006 12:59 PM

you got some great loot! i went last night and had a blast scooping up armfuls of yarn and handknits! you deserved a treat after all that studying.

Posted by: amanda at July 14, 2006 3:21 PM

I may be going there tomorrow, depending on the weather and such.

Posted by: naomi at July 14, 2006 4:02 PM

I am going there at 5:30 tonight. Is it just called angora, and will I recognize it?

Posted by: Megann at July 14, 2006 4:05 PM

So after reading your post this morning, I just HAD to go down there at lunch time (I ended up 30 mins late going back, I knew it was dangerous). The pickings were slimmer, but this was their last day they said, so that makes sense.

Enjoy your therapy - hope that you are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Posted by: Schrodinger at July 14, 2006 6:51 PM

Whoa. I'm so sad. I was there in January and had a great time. I liked the NY shop much more than her Beverly Hills shop. Ah, well. Glad you got some bargains.

Posted by: Angela at July 14, 2006 7:06 PM

thanks so much for the PSA! i didn't purchase quite as much as you, but for $30 i picked up six skeins, a stitch holder and needles.

Posted by: carrie m at July 14, 2006 9:44 PM

Most people I talked to about the sale heard it from you first. Thanks for telling us, Jess! I bought two skeins of slub cotton and a pair of needles for a friend. And one pair for myself. Less than ten bucks!

p.s. If I write the itunes book, I'll let you know!

Posted by: Michelle at July 15, 2006 4:24 PM

Wow!! Great stuff!! Wooden needles, and a cool handknitted sweater? Score!

Posted by: Julia at July 16, 2006 6:45 PM

Jessica, did that person go to the yarn store for angora? I was looking for that suss angora online, they don't have it anywhere.. even they don't show it on their website... I live in FL, can someone get some of that angora for me?

Posted by: Olga at July 16, 2006 9:56 PM

What a great haul! I got to the sale too late on friday and everything was pretty much gone...oh well I have enough yarn for a very very long time anyway.

Posted by: Marie at July 17, 2006 10:30 AM

Ummm, I did the same damage! Did they do a before and after sale comparison for you, to make you feel better about all the stuff you bought and money you spent? It worked for me!

Posted by: mudnyc at July 17, 2006 4:44 PM

Damn, girl, now THAT's a worthy haul. Too bad (or good?) I'm on the west coast & couldn't participate. . . must be fate, though, because my stash is already too big.


Posted by: hellahelen at July 18, 2006 6:10 PM

I went too! Spent soooo much money and bought tons of alpaca, angora, swift, fabric, baby items, clothes for me. It's sad they are closing - what a beautiful store it was but I think the rent was very high and they didn't get a lot of customers (I didn't even know that they opened in NY except that my friend who works at another yarn store heard about it). Anyway, the sale was so much fun

Posted by: HY at July 19, 2006 10:07 AM

Those needles are cool!

Posted by: chica at August 13, 2006 4:58 PM

Every body remembers that modern life is high priced, however some people require money for different things and not every one gets enough cash. Therefore to receive fast business loans or college loan should be a correct solution.
