    I had 15 mins. and went in originally to look for sandals(for a roman solider costume for our church play) and of course I couldn't pass up looking for fabric. Found this bag marked 79.And a candlewicking kit for 39 and the book for $1.48. I wasn't able to look thru the bag till last night. I was pleasantly surprised, I just kept pulling fabric out of the bag.125 flannel 8 1/2 inch squares, 3 panels, Christmas fabric, upholstry fabric and lots more. I think I got 79 worth don't you? :D

    Did you find the sandals? Big lot of nice fabric and certainly worth 79 cents.
