Before I went to bed I decided to check the online newspaper for local garage/estate sales. I found an ad for an Estate Sale right up the road from me. Nothing in the ad interseted me.....but....it is being run by a professional service, so I decided to check out their website. What did I find but a detailed list of items for this sale.....the list was huge and went on and on. I finally got to the end and read...."Fabric, Fabric, Fabric!!" So guess where I'm going to be at 8AM? I will be sure to post an update later.... :-)

Good luck to you. I would actually be there Earlier then 8. There will probably be alot of people there at 7 and they will probably let those people in early too. And it would be a shame for you to get there "too late" for the fabric. I hope you find lots of treasures. :)

good luck. I hope you find lots of goodies. I'm going furniture shopping with one of my girlfriends today-I'd rather be fabric shopping!

Just a hint for you....I went to a sale like that once...I bought a few pieces of fabric that I thought would sell fast...then I gave the woman my phone number and told her to call me if she didn't sell it..we could make a deal...i got everything that was left for 20 dollars...i had my car packed to the point you couldn't have put a toothpick in there!! it's a gamble, yes...but how many people will really buy fabric, especiall if it wasn't listed in the paper??? Good luck...let us know how you do! Donna
