    I had no intention of going out at all today! It's cold and raining. I had just heated up my lunch, when DH called and said, "I just had a bottle of White Out fall on my lap, can you bring me some clean pants? Please?". So being the wonderful wife that I am, I got him another pair of pants, and took them up to his office. He felt bad for making me come out in the bad weather, gave me $10 to stop & get lunch, but I have food at home, and went to Salvation Army instead.
    I went directly to the fabric/craft section, and guess what I got!
    1 yard of D.Morgan fabric (For Springs Ind.) A Little Bit of Heaven
    2 yards of vintage pink fabric with blue sprays of flowers on them
    3 fat quarters of blue/white flower/stripe fabric
    2 yards of Robert Kaufman 50's repo fabric
    1 3/4 yard small whale light brown cord fabric
    3 yards of red, green & white homespun
    Total price? $3.98 Today turned out to be a pretty good day!

    Lucky you! It sure is fun to find a deal like that. Once in a blue moon I have found something. I went to a garage sale this summer and got a big rubbermaid tote crammed full of fabric for $10, INCLUDING the tote!

    Aren't you glad DH called and wanted the new set of pants???
    You would have not made the haul without him calling...

    Wow, great deal. None of my local thrift stores have craft sections. Only find fabric on rare occassions.

    My latest yard sale find was hand-pieced twin quilt top $2, which I hope to sell
    via EBay for over $22. Seek and ye shall find.
