    My Goodwill super-bargain!

    Today I stopped at Goodwill and hit the jackpot! I got 10 pieces of fabric, totaling 45 (yes, - 45) yards of fabric plus a king size batting for a total of $15!!!!! Yippee!

    I was going to post a picture of the fabric, but I can not figure out how to post it using my iPhone!

    I never find fabrics at the Goodwill stores here, but there prices on other stuff seems to be really high. I have had some luck at Amvets as they have half price sales all the time. Congratulations on your great find. Looking forward to seeing the pics.

    You did really well , just the batting alone would have been more than $15.00 ( depending on fiber) . What a fabulous find, bet you go back there again ..soon.

    yipee!!!! I've heard that JoAnns donates fabric to GoodWill but I have never found any like that. I did get about 12 yards of a summery bird print for 6 bucks once. I may not have bought it at the store but for that price it certainly came home with me!!!

    You were fortunate our local Goodwill and Salvation Army stores are high on fabrics. It kinda ticks me off sometimes thinking everything is donated to them. I wonder about people who are shopping there because they have to.

    We have several local quilt shops but no good thrift stores around here. Lucky for you! Oh, when I take pics on my iPod I usually email them to myself, then open with my computer to post or whatever.

    I brought back over 400 pounds of fabric from Goodwill, 99 cents a yard. Being a snowbird payed off there as our Goodwill at home will not except fabric. It took 7 extra large spaceage bags to get it home.

    I hit a very good bargain at a garage sale last week. I got 2 of the grocery bags from walmart of fabric, one piece was more than 6 yards, a very nice paisley. plus quite a bit more of a yard or two and lots more for only $5.00 and the lady knew what she had because she is or was a quilter. Great buy.

    WOW, what a good deal. Our Goodwill doesn't have anything that is very good. The good stuff must go somewhere else and we get the junk.
