    From the used book store. 4 hard covers, 4 soft covers, and a magazine - all for . . . . . $12.00! All but one was on clearence for $1.00 each and the magazine was $0.50.

    I actually went to find some books with free motion examples in them. I need a lot of practice. I didn't find any of those - but I could not pass up a quilt book for a dollar!! I bought all the ones that were on clearance :)

    I wanted some books, too since our local Quilt shop is closing. They had fabrics at 60% off and everything else was 75%. As usual, I was a little late, but I got a few things. Dontcha just love a sale?!

    You must have been visiting Randy's Quilt Shop. I received an e-mail from Randy saying he was closing. I really started seriously quilting at Randy's shop about 12 + years ago.

    Great find, lucky you. In England their are never any bargains relating to quilt stuff. I do buy most of my fabric from Fabric Shack which is good, and sometimes a freind is in the States so I do not have to pay postage. Enjoy your books. :)

    Wow even one would cost more than $15! They all look fairly new too!

    They are all pretty new. I'm not sure why they were on clearance. I love the used book store, but it has spoiled me. Now I have a hard time buying anything at full price :)
