    You have got to be kidding!!! Wow are you one lucky son of a gun. This is a quilter's dream come true, is it not? Looks as if you'll be one busy busy bee for quite some time.

    Last Friday I was checking the CL for any interesting yard/estate sales and came across one listing "sewing stuff" that started Sat at 7Am. So I was there at 6:55 with my $20 bill in my pocket. Money is tight these days :cry: . It was very disorganized with no prices on anything at all. I spied a small wicker basket filled with sewing notions and a 3 shelf stainless steel cart on wheels as well as a June Taylor "Quilter's Square n Blocker". When I asked about a price for these 3 items she said whatever. Then she said that if I was interested in sewing "junk"...(her very words), to go into a small closet off the kitchen door. OMG. The lady who had lived there had been a QUILTER. The only drawback was there was no electricity in the house and that tiny room was pitch black. That didn't deter me one little bit...I went and got my flashlight out of the car. And spent the next 3 hours amassing my stash in the empty bedroom next door!!! Would you believe that there was no one else interested in this?? A few stuck their head in, took a look and backed out again. Finally, I was getting tired and decided to call it quits...it was overwhelming by that time. The next 9 pictures shows what I got for $105.00. BTW, I had to go to an ATM and transfer the money from my savings to checking to a cash withdrawal because she wouldn't take a check. Here's the first three...
    WOW WOW WOW....you made out like a bandit. That doesnt happen very often :)
