    Good Morning all! This is my first garage sale find.....

    I got all this for $5.00. I was able to pick and choose whatever would fit in a garbage bag without it breaking, so I chose all the cotton I could find. Mostly vintage pieces, 60 inches and 2 or more yards, some pieces smaller, but I'm still VERY VERY excited!!!!!

    What a neat buy. Our salvation army has gone up in prices so bad. they want 6.00 a yard for decent fabric. I think that is terrible to charge more than wally world is charging and by the way our WM has stocked beautiful fabrics and lines that go together....I am so happy, I have used some and it is holding up nicely...good luck on your find, keep looking thats the prices I can afford...

    $6 a yard? Who is making these decisions?
