    The newspaper said Estate Sale: quilting supplies and fabric. I spent two hours digging through over 30 boxes of "stuff." I had six boxes set aside and asked, "How much?" "How about $25." I couldn't get it out of my wallet fast enough. I'm going back today to see if there's anything left!

    The whole lot

    You will have fun going through it for the second time to organize. That's a lot of fabric. Great.
