    Smile Ultimate Quilter's Estate Sale - Lansing, KS- Sunday, Feb. 5th

    This info is from an email from Quilter's Quarters - quilt shop in Kansas. I sure hope some of you live nearby this sale.


    A dear friend and customer passed away two years ago and I promised her that when her husband was ready I would help move her fabric and supplies. We will be having an estate sale for her on Superbowl Sunday. We will hold it in her home from 10AM until 4PM.

    This sale is not part of the shop, so we are unable to offer it to our on-line shoppers. We apologize for this, but it is a local thing only.

    This will be a CASH ONLY sale and please bring small denomination bills as we will not have access to the banks that day for change.

    Please remember that this is an ESTATE SALE, not a yard sale, it would not be right to try to nickel/dime the prices. We will not negotiate the prices on anything.

    FAT QUARTERS $1.00 each
    HALF YARD CUTS $2.00 each
    YARDAGE WILL $4.00 per yard, it is all marked and it will not be cut, winner take all!
    JELLYROLLS $12.00 each
    CHARM PACKS $3.00 each
    LAYER CAKES $12.00 each
    HARDCOVER BOOKS $5.00 each
    PAPERBACK BOOKS $2.00 each
    KITS WILL BE MARKED OF THE ORIGINAL PRICE
    NOTIONS WILL BE OF THE ORIGINAL PRICE


    There is a lot of cross stitch merchandise as well.

    There are quite a few battings and pillow forms.

    One Universal sewing machine in the cabinet $35.00

    She also has a BabyLock quilting machine that to the best of my knowledge has been used 20 times.

    Magazines will be 4 for $1.00

    Thank you all for helping make this successful for her husband.

    Estate Sale Location: 824 BLUEBERRY, LANSING, KS

    Day: Sunday, February 5

    Time: 10 AM - 4 PM

    What a wonderful gift to the family of your former customer. I know you will miss seeing her in your store. This is customer service to the max, and another reason to shop you LQS and not the big box stores.

    I just went to a long time quilters estate sale. Her daughters priced all fabric by the pound and that way they did not have to measure any pieces. If you got a lot of smalls or jelly rolls or scraps it all was $4 a pound. It was so much faster and easier. She had an entire room devoted to fabric and there was only room for about six women to stand (not bend over) and reach and grab. We all had to find a place to pile our stuff.

    Great items and I walked out with 7 kits, a huge huge bag of fabric, some cross stitch kits which I have finished already, and several books.

    But the best idea was to sell by the pound and have two scales. One for the checkout and one for people with questions on what something weighs. Note: A pound of standard cotton fabric is about 5 ounces.

    I am not that far from Lansing, but I'm sure all the best goodies will be gone by the time I can get there after church. It sounds like there will be some great bargains.
