Yep. I’m doing my taxes, folks. So, in an attempt to balance out all the negative energy around here I’m having a sale. On everything. All of the things at worthygoods textile are on sale. Just ’cause. Between this sale, the caramel in my coffee and my Pandora 80’s radio station, I’ve just given this previously-drudgey weekend a Dory-style makeover. Yep, Debbie Debb and I are singing the same song, “Look out weekend, cause here I come. Because weekends were made for fun.”

Take that tax paperwork monster.

Now you’ve got 80’s prices, Pat Benetar hair and caffeine buzz.
