Default My Goodwill Score for Today

I dropped by my local Goodwill this afternoon and found what I consider the score of scores, inch and a half and one inch curved basting pins in an assorted pack, nickel plated for $1.25 per pack of 100. If any of you have priced basting pins lately, you will know that this is a really good deal. I bought sixteen packages and may go back tomorrow and get some more. 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.

Great find. I like the geometric designs on the black, yellow, & blue fabric.

I love any fabric that has an ethnic flair. I am contemplating making a kaleidoscope quilt with it. I already checked the repeats and it will work.

YIPEE for your score! I've been really good this year and have been staying out of resale shops....well at least I've gone in and not purchased anything....that counts as staying out...in my books.

I had some of that fabric you have the pins laid on. I just loved it. You scored really big.
