Default My turn for a (small) haul

the local senior center had a crafts program and gift shop. They are having to leave that small space so are selling all their supplies. I needed smaller pieces in certain colors, so I went and filled a couple of bags, and got some books, for $8. First haul was 7.5 pounds of fabric.

Next day I felt I really, really needed to go back!! Went back and spent $20 this time, got more fabric, including larger pieces at about $1 a yard, a rotary cutter for $1, and more books at 2 for 25 cents!! I think I got about 20 pounds of fabric, which works out to about 80 yards worth.

And I bravely resisted all the yarn!

What fun! I've found deals like that at the end of estate sales - $5.00 a bag for fabric.
