    Yard Sale Bonanza

    Went to a yard sale this morning and hit the fabric jackpot. I got about 40 yards of fabric for $7.00. that comes to 17.5 cents a yard. She was selling the fabric by the bag for $7.00. I stuffed as much as I could get into it. Here are some pics of my find, sorry some of them a kind of blurry.

    She must have been selling someone else's stash. None of us would have sold those nice fabrics for a price like that. I think you may have gotten the bargain of the century

    OMG! I've already instructed my daughter to not "give" my fabric away. Someone obviously didn't know the value of fabric and what they had.
