    Wow!!! What a lucky day for you, maybe you should go buy a lottery ticket.

    Oh, thank you everyone!!! I had to share the excitement!

    I've ordered a bunch of stuff off EBay over the years, maybe once or twice it wasn't good, but really it's a great source.

    I've got stacks of fabric to cut into, not yet knowing what it will end up being.
    Have blade, will cut!

    (I like the way you thing katier825! I may just *have* to do that!)

    Well done! Great bargain. I use the same blades and they are definately pricey. I wait until the sales are on. Hmm - I think I will have to open up e-Bay! Thanks for sharing your good fortune.

    I just love ebay! I have to limit myself. I'll be on continually for a month or so and spend WAAAY too much money, then I'll have to not even look for a couple of months.

    My best score was a Seth Thomas Grandfather Clock with Moon Phases, not a battery powered, but true pendulum & weights. Seth Thomas doesn't make Grandfather clocks anymore. It is six feet high and has four different chimes and is gorgeous. I got it for less than $400.00! And it runs beautifully!

    Have you heard of Auction Sniper? That's what I use for stuff I really want. It places your bid for you, as little as 3-4 seconds before the end of the bidding. And their servers are VERY fast.

    Be careful---you'll start with blades, move on to scraps and before you know you'll be buried in yardage. So far as I know there is no known cure. :lol:
