    I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but their pockets must have a lot more cash than mine. I wouldn't pay that much even if I had the cash but some people will.

    There has got to be more to this offering than meets the eye. No one would pay that price..bet some kid got their hands on a bidding password...heard of that happening before.

    If you look at the bidders you will see only a couple of people were bidding on it. In these cases it usually ends up like a debate on who can get it.....not that they really need it.....
    They were bidding back and forth until 26 bids were made. Last time I saw something like this it was over a childs toy worth about $20 and it went up over $500.

    HOLY COW! $108.05 for 2 yards of that??? Someone must have either needed it desperately to finish a project, or a very heated bidding war was going on! Yikes!

    Maybe some one had an unfinished project and didn't care what they had to pay for the fabric. I saw a fabric I wanted for the back of an orential type quilt I plan to make. Went back to buy it and it was gone. Have been serching for it for almost 2 years and finally found it at Joann's. Not where I originally saw it. I had been serching online and couldnot find it. It was when Joann had a good sale last month. Got it for 50% off. It was in 3 pieces but what the hey? I can sew it together!!! I was just glad to find it. The price was a bonus!

    Let's hope the "winner" noticed the words "vintage style". Though it could be just plain old "auction fever"...where it's not all about what the item is at all.

    I know I spend far too much money on my hobby, quilting but I don't care as I am a complete addict and wouldn't be without it even tho' I am on a tight budget but to pay that sort of money for that particular piece of fabric :shock:

    They must have more money than sense :hunf:

    I wonder too. I noticed it was a "private" bid so the identity is so held confidential.
