I have't purchased here as of yet but always read through many of the for sale posts. I have found quite a few fabrics to be more pricey than even my LQS. Guess it just depends on what a seller has paid for their items. The books do seem to be more expensive than many places I could purchase them. But again maybe these people have paid premium prices for their things and not sale prices. It's all up to the buyer to choose whether they want to pay the asking price just like anywhere we shop. I have also seen many happy ladies finding fabrics they needed to complete a quilt that was not manufactured anymore and a quilter here had it and in that case in my opinion I'll probably pay just about anything to get what I wanted. That is a great advantage here. Some of my beloved collections are years old and I would hope when/if I needed more of a fabric I could be as lucky as some of the ladies here.
