    Garage sale finds

    I got lucky this morning. We are in "tiger country" here in Baton Rouge and someone didn't want all that fabulous fleece! There is a lot of it. Plus the new cutting mat. Never have had one that color. Entire purchase - $7.00. That makes up from going to all those zillion garage sales and finding nothing.

    Indeed we are!!! We live close enough to Tiger Stadium that if we walk to the front of the subdivision we can see the lights and hear the crowd!! Hubby goes to the games.

    I'm laughing.. I've been thinking that the garage sales here just don't have fabric, as quilting is very popular... and it's been getting frustrating.. Maybe I will hit pay dirt if I keep going.. Thanks for your story

    Lucky you--I just down the road from Baton Rouge and we were at the baseball game last night that had a Grand Slam in the 8th inning.

    Great stuff! It is the thrill of the hunt! That is why men go hunting - they never know what they will find!

    Well that is such the truth NikkiLu! I have been to so many garage sales and thrift shops and have found nothing, but, every time I go I think "maybe today". I say "you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find the handsome prince". applies to garage sales.
