    While making donations at GoodWill industries, I always look for a piece of two of fabric. Yesterday, I stumbled on this taped up package of what? Looked like fabric so I just had to have it.

    It contained 3 Fat Quarters, 1/2 yard CROSSWOODS CROSSING moda, A front of a vest with angels print by Fashion Fabrics, an unused kitchen towel and an United States Flag with 50 stars (nylon), it is dirty but soil won't wash out by hand washing. That's OK. I'll keep it anyway.

    Just more fun shopping. I also found a Peasant blouse by Sag Harbor, new tag still attached that was my size. And of course, two books.

    Nothing better then finding a great deal at the goodwill store! Love it when I find clothes with the tags still on in my size. I rarely find good fabric.

    I too am fortunate to find fabric fairly often at my local Goodwill! It's always a treasure hunt for me!

    Great finds! If you don't want the flag you can donate it to the American Legion or VFW, and they will properly dispose of or make use of it. Sad, it was treated with such disrespect.
