I had need to buy a passel of zippers (don’t ask questions around Christmastime!) and found a great online source I thought I’d share (and no, they aren’t paying me to write this).
It’s called Zipperstop. I navigated to the photo above (under “closed zippers,” then “lightweight,” then “skirt and dress assortment”), which is an illustration of their 50-pack of zippers. I only needed 25, and I needed them in rainbow colors. I called the company (they’re in New York) and the person that answered the phone said to leave a note at checkout–there will be a box in which I could write them a note. So I asked for an assortment of rainbow colors, which you see in the top photo. I’m very happy with my zipper stash, and now wish I’d bought the full 50, as it’s such a deal (and they are high quality zippers). Price? Very good, but don’t forget that there is shipping. Overall, it’s WAY cheaper than my big box fabric store.
Plus I like talking to people from New York. They make my California accent sound bland. But I do have to say that when I lived there, my neighbor came over that first week, and she was from Brooklyn. We talked and she was lots of fun, so I told her I was trying to figure out where her accent came from. “Accent?” she said. “You’re the one with the accent.”
What else did I do this week?
1. Graded my brains out (example of a guy-staple job on the corner of stack of papers)
2. Took my quilt in to be quilted at Cathy’s
3. Got rid of a sofa, got the carpets cleaned, and went to IKEA four times rounding up furniture (that includes returns and re-purchases of wrong items)
4. Bought fabric. This one’s from IKEA. I think I’m the last to know about their fabric department but I have to say my husband was beyond patient while waiting for me to stop noticing bolts of fabric.
5. Had Autumn. This is it. This one tree. Hope you enjoyed the show as next week it will be summer again (we’ve had temperatures in the upper 70s and 80s this week–83 degrees on Thanksgiving, which is just un-American).
6. Had Thanksgiving. And given the regularity of seeing the leftovers at mealtime, I’d say we’re still having it. But last night we went out for Thai, today for lunch we just about killed the leftovers, so things are looking up in the meal department. But it was a good feast and a lot of family put their feet under our table.
I’m completely in a L-tryptophan high, except for the fact that there are 12 boxes of Christmas sitting in front of the cars, waiting for someone to do something about it.
