i was one ebay and found some elvis fabric that i have never seen before. i am not familiar with buying and selling on ebay. the fabric has pink cadillacs and elvis allover. i was wondering if anyone has seen this fabric and know where i can buy it at a store. i haven't seen this at walmart, hancocks, or joanns. not here any way. do you think that quilt shops may have this material. i have only been to a quilt shop once before i started quilting. hope someone can help me.

The big thing is to look at postage and handeling. If something is sold cheap theextra charges can bring the total up. also read the feed back. . If you are careful you can do ok on ebay. Have you tried a google search for elvis fabric? :D good luck

I buy and sell a lot on eBay. Like Ruth said, the postage can be bumped to make up for a cheap price on the item. If the item (fabric) is a good price after combining the sale price and shipping price, you may wanna go for it. You can get a lot of good deals on eBay.
Also, as Ruth said, look at feedback. I will not bid on anything from a seller with less than 98% positive feedback. Make sure they've sold more than 1 or 2 items, too.

I recommend registering with eBay. It's a lot of fun. It really is easy.

I did see Elvis fabric at a WM a while back. Not sure if it was the same you mentioned, but they had 2 or 3 different kinds.

I do have a couple of sellers through ebay that I use all the time.. I also do not buy if they have less than a 98% feedback and I do not buy if they have under 20 on feedback...

So far I have been really happy.. I have found the material has been accurately described... Also the few I use do ship very quickly... Not only is it convenient for me to purchase from there it is ecinomical...I live 57 miles from any large town..
