A quest for my partner...

My partner is looking for Lion Brand Trellis yarn in champagne. He has seen a crocheted necklace in that color and wants to recreate it. Apparently, this color has been discontinued and next to impossible to find. Do any of you have any that you would like to part with or know where to find some at a reasonable price? Let me know! Thanks!!

Thanks for the extensive

Thanks for the extensive research. He found the listings on eBay and also thought the prices were a bit extreme, even for discontinued colors. Thanks for the Ravelry links. I didn't even think about checking there. Thanks again!

I did a little looking, and

I did a little looking, and if you're on Ravelry there are 4 people who have that stashed that have it listed as "Will trade or sell". Here's a link to the search results: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/lion-brand-trellis/stashes?status=trade&cf=brown&photoless=1&photoless=0&search=

There are currently 13 listings on eBay for it: http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=lion+brand+trellis+champagne&_trksid=p3286.c0.m301 Although most of the prices seem a bit steep to me. I mean $13.95 for one skein?? I know it's discontinued now and getting hard to come buy, but the original retail price was $5.99 as shown on the Lion Brand site for the two colors still in stock.

I also found one listing on Etsy, but like eBay, it seems overpriced to me. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=29397611&ref=sr_gallery_1&&ga_search_query=lion+brand+trellis+champagne&ga_search_type=supplies&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

That's about all I could find that was verifiable. Other links I found proved to be out of date, or in the case of the JoAnn Fabrics website, was currently down for maintenance or something.
