    I ventured up the attic pull down stairs/ladder at dawn this morning.
    I found two more laundry baskets of fabric. I left a box maybe two of scraps.
    Nice to see it all again. I haven't used the fabric in the last 15 years. Does that make it vintage? I am happy to see I haven't purchased any of the pieces over again. Washing it all to freshen and to make easier folding. I may not need to go to the store for a long time.

    Good for you, especially with the price of good fabric these days, it is sure nice to have stash!

    Vintage is 20+ years, antique is 100 years or older
