    What a wonderful 'find' at your Goodwill Store! You should feel good about it.

    I have a friend who keeps tabs on the very large size shirts and blouses for material to build her stash. She likes to go to the store on the 50% off day and has found some wonderful things.

    Good deal. I would love that bag of beads. This board got me hooked on crazy quilts.
    Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.

    I really enjoy the treasure hunt of a GOodwill trip. Your trip was a great find and I am so happy for you.

    Here is a picture of the desk

    Great find. I always check the fabric bin. Almost all pieces are a dollar no matter what the size. Anywhere from fat quarters to several yards per piece. They have gotten so expensive on some items lately I keep waiting for someone to find out how much fabric is in the store. Mean while my stash is growing.

    WOW 16 packages! You really found a treasure trove.

I test drove the pins to check the quality and they work just fine.

    And I did find the three fabric pieces, all 3 yards pieces for $3.99 each, the bag of costume jewelry pearls for $1.99 and a large wood desk for $25.00 that will make an awesome FMQ table.

    Yes, I also went back for more of the safety pins. Too good to pass up.
