    I make a habit of checking out the second hand sales websites around here every now and again and have found a few great deals, and in my check today, I found a woman not too far from me who is having a "Craft Room Clear Out Sale"...fabrics (yardages, FQ's and pre-cuts), patterns, threads, tools, etc...

    And I have to wait until SUNDAY! I'm ready to go crash down her door right now...LOL

    Patience my dear, patience. You may just be disappointed in what she has or doesn't have.

    You're right - I might be. Since I'm a new quilter, I'm always on the look out for stash building deals, so I'm really hoping this will be one! lol Heck, I'd even be happy with a big bag of scraps! If I went out and bought everything I want to have, my husband would have an aneurysm, so I keep my eye out for little deals that will eventually set me up! lol

    Take plenty of CASH....yep, the cold hard stuff that makes you able to wheel and deal like a PRO!! A lot of people are leary of a personal check and would rather deal with the green stuff. Lots of small bills in one pocket and larger bills in the other pocket but be safe....don't ''flash'' the cash. If you have any grocery store tote bags, bring them too.

    Have fun....good lulck!!

    So I emailed the lady, asking her about prices and such - she's asking 2/$1 for FQ's, $3 for larger pieces, $5 for very large pieces, $2-$10 for rulers, and $5 for large pieces of batt! I've asked if she'll let me have an advance look on Saturday...cross your fingers for me!!

    Deema, I was going to suggest calling or emailing her for a sneek peek. I she knows you are seriously interested she just might let you peek. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    I thought about making an offer on everything, but I don't know how much she has, so I want to wait until I see what she has...I might!

    She hasn't yet replied to my question about a sneek peek, but I emailed her pretty late last night, I'll let you know! lol

    Be there as early as you can so you get first choice! I hope she lets you come early. Good luck.
