    I was a a thrift store yesterday and got two bundles of fabric for $10 ( there was 19 yard between the two) and i was wondering if any of them are 1930 repo's?

    ok. I am not sure how to tell the difference just yet. I have seen some smaller prints that i was told 1930 repro and looked just like some of the smaller prints here. QB is a great place to ask questions and find out :-D

    I've been around too long!LOL, so I can somewhat recognize fabrics from the 70s on. 30s fabrics tend to be bright true colors with prints. I'll find a link to send you too. Be back in a minute.

    None of them look like 30s prints to me.
    Google "30s prints" so you can famialarize yourself with them. I love all the tiny prints!

    They are beautifal fabrics but I'm with everyone else with them not being 30's. 80's or 90's would be my guess.
