    Great find. This will keep you busy for awhile. When I visit my daughter in Denver, we love to go to yard and estate sales.

    Wonderful haul. I go to a lot of yard sales, but haven't in the past two or three years seen ANY fabric. If anyone has it, they keep it for themselves or give it to someone they know. Sob sob sob

    I reckon nobody around here quilts. I can't find fabric at yard sales or thrift stores.

    No Ad. I just happened by. The sale was on my way as I go to town to do errands. I stopped and saw one box, told the lady I would take it then she said "I have another". I took both.

    I second that. The thing is we don't have a storage shed, so don't know where I would go. Congrats, can't wait to see all the fabric close up. BrendaK
