    WOW. Nice haul. I want to a garage on Friday that advertised fabric. The mother died and the daughter was having the sale. I got seven pieces of boring fabric for $5.00. I told the garage sale lady that I read about others finding great deals, like bags of fabric for just a few dollars and I never find deals like that. She said 'I think they're lying to you' or something to that effect. I said 'I don't think so'. After her saying that, I was sorry that I bought anything. I really didn't want it, but felt obligated to buy something. My husband tells me I'm nuts when I buy things out of obligation.

    You did score big time. Good for you.

    Lucky you-I am so jealous of everyone who finds great deals at yard sales and thrift shops-I must have went to half a dozen thrift stores yesterday and nothing :(

    Lucky you....I haven't found anything good yet.
    I answered a Craigs list ad to check out some fabric. She wanted $300.00 FIRM for a box of crap :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

    I wonder if she still has that box of fabric :evil: :evil: :evil: probably.......

    I use to buy items because I felt obligated, but after a couple of times I just sucked it up and walked away.

    Most of what I find are from people who are moving and need to reduce their stash. Keep looking, the bargains are out there! Good luck.
