    Another thrift store score!

    I've read a few scores in the past few days and I got my own today from a local thrift store. A 22" Hinterberg floor quilt stand and hoop..for $10!! I knew what it was right away and there wasnt a price on it because it was still in the back..I was back there with the manager looking at some vintage lawn chairs when I saw it. She asked her boss the price and said he $15 or whatever she wants to to give for it, I doubt we will get rid of it otherwise. So I said 10 and they said yes! Oh and I got the awesome chairs cheap too!

    I just sold a large oval hoop with floor frame for $10 locally, I discovered I had 4 large oval frames and even I don't need THAT many. So I got rid of the one with the floor frame as I never used it. I like to sit back when I quilt.
