    Yesterday I stopped by VA and found 7 cotton sheets in excellent condition. Last time I was there they didn't have any cotton ones. There was one twin and the rest were queen and king all for $18.00. There's 3 or 4 that will make great backings. I love a good bargain and it really made my day! Just wanted to share.

    For those who have St. Vincent dePaul thrift stores in your area, you may find some good buys there. I pay $1.50 and $1.99 for my flat sheets. I don't know if they have a standard price guide in other states, but I do know that in OHIO they are very reasonable. I use them on the backs of my quilts. I have even gotten some to make curtains. I no longer shop at Goodwill because they have gotten so high.

    Please tell us about the Thrift stores in your area and how their prices are. We can all use a good trip to a Thrift store and help a charity at the same time.
