    I always get a little jealous when I see people post photos of great fabric finds at garage sales. Well, My oldest son told me he could not mail me my Mother's Day gift this year. He came to spend the night this week and lugged what appeared to be a very heavy Rubbermaid tub. When we popped open the top....lucky me!!! He was at an auction emptying the contents of a store...not a LQS, more like a general store. He bid on one bundle for $X and the auctioneer said, how many do you want at that price? My son said, all of them!!!
