    Here was what I got.

    Replacement 45mm Olfa blade
    18" by 24" self healing Olfa cutting mat
    4 yrds black fabric
    1 yard cornflower blue
    1 yard periwinkle
    1 yard royal blue
    1/2 yard funky modern fabric
    1/2 yard another funky modern fabric
    new seam ripper

    I got all of this for $26.74

    :D :D :D :D :D

    At another home I got two whoopie pies (yum!) 1/2 dozen donuts, a loaf of wheat, and a loaf of white, plus some oatmeal peanut butter cookies.

    Next stop yielded beets and carrots that we helped pull from the lady's garden. Also some cayenne peppers picked right off the plants. The beets and carrots filled a shopping bag each. Also picked up a quart of the coolest miniature bell peppers in every color imaginable. Everything was $3 total there.

    Last stop I bought 4 beautiful red peppers for 50 cents each. Plus some green beans that I sauteed with garlic for dinner.

    It was a good day!

    Wow! What a bargain for all that good stuff! I guess I've led a sheltered life as I'm not sure what a Whoopie pie is except that you said it's yummy. It must have chocolate in it then, right?

    Okay...when are you going shopping again? I'm getting the next flight in. LOL. What a great price on everything. I love anything amish. I have an amish made cedar chest that I got in Tennessee that would origionally anywhere else, have been $300-$400 or more and we got it for $150. I love it! Yeah, I'm not sure what a whoopie pie is either, but it sounds good!

    Here is the recipe for Whoopie Pies, also called Sweetie Pies

    3 cups flour
    1 tsp. baking soda
    3/4 tsp. salt
    1/2 cup shortening
    1 1/2 cups brown sugar
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup cocoa
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 cup milk

    Filling:
    1/2 lb. powdered sugar
    1/4 cup soft shortening
    1 tsp. butter
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4 cup milk
    3/4 tsp. vanilla

    Cream shortening, add sugar, salt and vanilla. Cream well. Add eggs and cocoa, beat well. Sift dry ingredients together. Add alternately with milk to cream mixture. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cooke sheet, bake at 375 degrees for 11 - 12 minutes.
    When cookies are cool, place a generous dollop on inverted cookie and place another on top.... yum yum
