    Last weekend my LQS held a garage sale for customers who wanted to get rid of some of their stash. I wasn't going to go but my DH talked me into it. I was sooooo glad he did! Want to see what I got? I got so much I had to reorganize my fabric closet!!!!! and I should tell y'all...it was all for under $100!!!

    69 yards of fabric plus almost 2 batik layer cakes

    What a clever idea. A great way to drum up business for the store and get people in. Looks like you got some goodies, love the little teddy bear.

    SPEW!!!!! I got him a sign for over his office door that says "It's All About ME!"" so he might just think the DH is for him! ROTF!

    Don't you just love quilters garage sales. Have been to two of them. One nice size box, the first day then found out next day everything 50% off, was back there 10 mins before it opened. Made out like a bandit
