    Doing the happy dance after a Church Rummage Sale!!

    Today was the annual Rummage sale run by a local church. I got there 10 minutes after it opened and made a beeline for the Craft room. They had 3 grocery store paper bags full of fabrics for $2 each. I asked if it was ok if I peeked in the bags to see what they contain and they said I could empty the bags and make bags for myself with just what I wanted. They even had a rocking chair for me to sit in while I did this! OMG!! I made up close to 2 bags of just cottons and left the poly for someone else. I paid the full $2 per bag even though they weren't totally full. I even found a large quantity of an unbleached looking cotton fabric for $1 more. All told I got all the fabric you see below for $5. Now I have to get sewing!

    Just remembered I also paid $1 admission to the sale. So that changes the whole pricing structure of the sale. Now I'm not sure I got a good deal - after all I paid a whopping $6 for this fabric.

    Just kidding! Still doing the happy dance. I think it will last all day, maybe all weekend.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    wow, you hit the jackpot!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I just love Church Rummage Sales. I always find scads of fabrics and a machine or two. My MIL took me to my first one -we had to call my DH to bring the truck to get the rest of our goodies.I took a friend to her first one last year and I told her we should take her truck but she said she wasn't going to buy much. She ended up taking my car home to get her truck and a couple boys to help load it. She bought a big old oak desk for $25 that we seen in an antique store for $1200.
