    There is a small thrift store near me that I go to sometimes. I went Monday and found gold!!!! I got a lot of material, ribbons, lace and trims, a few patterns, a grocery sized bag of scraps and a few squares a quilter started and someone donated. all for under $15. The material, one is over 10 yards,
    several over 3 yards, most 1/2 to 1 yard. I was thrilled.

    ribbons and trims
