    Today was THE day for thrift store bargains. I got all of this for about $20 - which was half the regular price due to it being Saturday 1/2 off day!!!
    $5.00 2 pcs of white fleece, about 1-1/2 yds each
    $2.00 1 yd cherries
    $2.50 Humpty Dumpty panel, 35X44, 1 yd of the smiley stars and 1 yd 20" of the Humpty Dumpty print all in the same bag !
    $3.00 6 Batik fat quarters (they were not half price, but how could I pass up that bargain! ?)
    $1.50 5 pieces of sewing theme prints 1/2 yd each and one is 10X18
    $ .99 cowgirl print, 4 panels 44X12 each
    $5.00 georgeous fall print 5 yds plus 2 yds of VERY thin black (wil probably never use that)
    Oh yah, and a 49 cent 3" 3-ring binder to keep magaines in.
    I feel like I won the lottery!!

    Good grief!!! I should have went to the Aurora store instead of the store on 36 and Pecos in the north area. I found only one piece of fabric that I couldn't live without and it was 1 1/2 yds of sewing theme for 1.99...

    I think your store and the one in Greeley both gave all their fabric to Aurora! LOL

    WOW! Which store did you go to?

    I know it was Goodwill's 50% off day today, but I didn't know about any other stores having 50% off today, too. The Goodwill store in Parker almost never has fabric!

    Went to the ARC on Parker Rd in Aurora (little West of I-225) - they seem to have fair amount of fabric, but I don't always find something I'm interested in - just lucked out today.

    Also says: Fruit Basket
    Fabric was cut right after the #4018, found the 'Fruit Basket' farther on down the edge.
