    I had never been in a Salvation Army store. Listening to my friends comments here I decided to go today. They had T-shirts for .99- $1.99 , which wasn't too much of a surprise as I had heard this. What was a surprise was when I went to check out all the white tags which all of mine were another 50% off!!! I ended up with 15 T's for 13 bucks!!!!
    Another shocker was the amount they had and how it was set up, not just 1 or 2 bins but 4 rows about 25' long stuffed with t-shirts and also were hung so neatly with all like colors together. They even had a camo and.....I was in heaven.. TIE DIE section!!!!
    Now I am laughing at myself for how excited I am about this! LOL

    T-shirts? Aren't they a little hard to put in a quilt?

    Yes, you can find some good bargains at Salvation Army, Goodwill stores, thrift stores, church mission shops.

    They also have a day thru the week with more discounts and depends on your age a discount also.

    It is fun to find bargains!

    I love the thrift stores. I am a regular in all the ones around me. Sometimes I get lucky but it is always fun to look.
