Every year we have a Pajama Sale.  It is always the first Saturday in February from 6 am to 9 am.  Everything in our four stores is discounted 30%.  However, there is a catch to receiving the discount.  One must be wearing pajamas in order to receive the discount.  No jammies = no discount.  The sale is a fun time for customers and employees alike. 

We hope to see you there!

  

(Lolly's Fabrics will close at  9am and re-open at 10am with regular hours.  This gives all the employees time to eat breakfast & time to clean the store up.)


We do suggest that you reserve your hotel room early.  The local hotels fill up months to a year in advance for that weekend.
