    Sorry, I don't have pictures to post because I was too eager to get it all put away, but listen to this! A couple of months ago I saw a posting for 14 boxes of fabric for $40. I snatched it up! I kept 7 boxes for myself (and shared with a friend), relisted the leftover 7 boxes for $30. Sold it quickly. About a month later, the seller emailed me privately and offered me 16 boxes for $50. I bought it, kept 4 boxes, relisted the leftovers for $60. I got ALL of my fabric- 11 boxes total for FREE!! Now THAT is a deal! Keep watching CL- our area often has fabric deals.
