    I'm envious - sounds like you had a great time. I love the Crabapple Hill designs and kits - just hate to pay the price. Wish they had those kinds of garage sales in my neck of the woods!

    What a haul!!! There are never sales like that around here. I guess everyone is keeping their stuff!!! I started looking for a few things last summer, and every sale I went to just had junk. The prices were high, too. I guess everyone around here thinks their junk is everyone else's "treasure". It is fun though.

    Yup, garage, rummage, yard sales, they're all wonderful places to find fabrics. What I don't like though is the sale where the seller thinks her fabric is worth more than she paid for it. I've left and headed to the next sale and found wonderful buys. Most of the buyers were still at the other sale. I came away with boxes of Threads magazines at .10/each and fabric $1/pc w/3 yd+ each. I can hardly wait til it's garage sale time again. We had snow yesterday so spring is still a bit away.

    The reader who said prices are a little high for a garage sale might have done what I did at first. I read "all at
    30% OFF retail". On re-reading I saw it said "30% OF retail". Wow, you got the buy of the auction. Enjoy! (I believe, however, you might still find something you need in Paducah LOL)

    Why can't I ever find garage sales like that? lol. I have found a few sales with scraps, but not much yardage. I'll keep looking.

    I don't get time to go to yard sales and flea markets very much, but would like a find like yours. Congrats on all your treasure.

    I LOVE going to garage sales. I've found some great deals on quilting fabric and such, but not lately. yesterday, Dh and I went to two community yard sales. They both even had maps. We did a lot of walking and getting in and out of the car, and found a few good things, but no good sewing or quilting type stuff. It was so hot that all I really got was a sunburn and very tired. Hopefully next weekend will be better.

    I sure wish we could get lovely things like that here at our yard sales. I always ask about fabrics, upon ariving, just to be sure. Everyone says "wish I COULD sew, but no". I did find a Morse sewing machine from the 70s at a yard sale this week. I asked the lady if it didn't sell, would she consider donating it to the Cumberland Valley Quilters guild for our fundraiser auction and she said yes. It is a great machine. As soon as it gets warmer, I'm going to clean it up and make it look good. QB is the only place I have ever heard or seen anything about Morse machines. It is a Cadillac looking machine with lots of fins and chrome. Hope it does well. I can't buy everything I see.

    Good for you. I seldom find anything worth while when I go to garage sales.
