    :-D :-D :-D Went to get stuff to make my supper with and decided to stop in the Goodwill since it is next door to the store. I found this for about $14 and change and we all know these are expensive new. Over $100.00 they cost new. Enjoy. I know I will, Huggies, Fay...........There was a lady in line behind me that was complaining because she didn't get it and I got it and she wanted it and I said no way, I got it!

    Sorry the picture doesn't do it justice

    No quilt on it as yet tho I might quilt my bargello on it or some other small projects on it. I'm still laughing at the lady behind me and I also do puch embroidery so it will come in really handy for that as you can turn it so you don't have to unfasten any thing. Yes it is a floor stand doodad. All I had to do was tighten the hand scew on the bottom and there is a little crack on the inside hoop and I can fix that. I can put some wood glue in the crack and tape it to keep it together as it dries and thet will be no problem, least I hope so. I'm so happy wiht my find. Huggies, Fay

    Great find! Just have to add, my DD and DGS went to Goodwill last week-end to drop off some items. They were re-organizing and cleaning their part of the house. Then planned to go to the furniture store to look for a recliner/game chair for one boy and an office/game chair for the other boy. Luckily they decided to look around at GW first and found chairs for both boys. Both in very nice condition. Also a TV cabinet and DD found a cute purse, all 100.00. She was so excited! You just never know what you might find there. I'm going to have to go looking soon.

    Goodwill store near me is usually priced high. About everytime I visit GWill there is a coupe that stand by the door and grabs anything that looks good. Customers have compained to store manager but nothing is done. This couple has a resale store, so you figure what they do with good stuff when it gets to their store.
    Just my vent.

    Wonderful !

    Just a reminder to everyone who shops at resale places -
    IF you THINK you MAY Want it - HOLD ON TO IT - don't walk away from it - take it with you - cause I guarantee you someone will pick it up the minute you walk past it.

    yesss,,, If I'm not sure if I want some thing I will put it in my cart until I'm done shopping and if I don't want it. I will put it back. Some times this happens and I decide later that I want it and I go back,, it's gone. So I'm glad I kept this. It's going to come in handy as I can sit and practice my hand quilting while watching tv or do my punch embroidery on it. Our Good woill has reasonable price on most things, in fact a couple of months ago I got a heavey glass basket for 99 cents. Showed it to Mom yesterday and she thought is was so neat. It looks alomst like one she has. Never know what you are going to find. My sister and I went to Bremerton one day last summer and we looked in thier Goodwill and a nother thrift store and there are always people in those store looking for treasures too. Have a great day, Huggies, Fay.........I tihnkn it was meant for me to find this.
