    So I checked out that lady's sale...oh my word, she had SO MUCH STUFF. Bins and bins of fabrics, magazines, kits, patterns, books...it was like sweet deal quilter's heaven. I made myself stick to a budget, and only allowed myself to bring $60 to spend...and all told, I got tons of batting, at least 18m of fabric (much of that in FQ's with a few 1-3m pieces thrown in there too), and a stack of magazines for my $60! I easily could have spent that 60 on just one of those pieces of batting in my LQS! CRAZY! She's going to keep on selling through the weekend and most of next week...I think I might have to go back!!!

    LOL No...I did not pee my pants, thankfully. But I was almost excited enough for it.

    I was only able to stick to my budget by only bringing that much cash and leaving my plastic at home. HAHAHAHAHA

    But I think I will go back though...which sort of defeats the purpose, I guess...but man, it's hard to resist.

    WOW! You did Great!!! It would be hard to stick to a budget with that many goodies. Proud that you handled that. I hope you get to go back if you are wanting to. Maybe ask her if you get a discount since you are a return visitor? LOL Can't hurt.

    What fun! Looks like you did well. She will really want to deal as she gets toward the end of the day. That's when you can really make a deal. The "I'll give you X for everything that is left"...kind of deal. That is IF someone else has not already made her that offer.

    Good for you! I think I would go back, but then they see me coming! I am a sucker for good fabric at an affordable price. I went to a LQS "friends sale" where people had tables set up and lots of goodies. I overspent, but I really did behave myself. I bought some stuff for my quilting ladies at church, and a pieced top that I will use for a baby quilt that I need really soon! I did enjoy myself, but I am glad I left when I did. There was a FW there for $250.00. I asked, but I am not in the market for another FW.
