    Went to a flea market Thursday and happened to pick up a hardbound quilt book from 1993. The guy called out from his truck "you can have the whole box for $5.00".. I looked down and there were over 20 hardbound quilting books that looked brand new. Of course I didn't pass up that bargain. Can't wait to start going through all of them. It's like Christmas in my sewing room!!!

    Lucky you! I always look for quilting books when my DH & I go to flea markets, but all I ever find is cooking books!

    Awesome find!

    There is a flea market about two miles from my house and I have NEVER been there I have lived here/in the area all my life and it has always been there as long as I can remember. I really need to go!
