    So for $50.00 today's find includes partially completed quilt that I'll finish for charity. Rulers, stabalizer, needles, buttons, rotary cutters, cutting mat, wall art, quilting books, Fray check, marking pencils, pins and well take a look.

    Happy Dance time again. I sure love these Estate Sales in Tennessee.

    My girlfriend who went with me loaded up with about 100 new spools of embroidary thread, cutting mat, thread wall holder, loaded her up for $19.00.

    Wonderful finds! I just love a good estate sale. All that useful stuff going to a person who values it makes what could be a sad event a little nicer. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I've been working on that quilt top for a while now. It's one of those that I do in the car or in the waiting room at the Drs. You got a great deal.

    Go online and type in Estate Sales. Look for the local companies around you. I have joined their email registeries for Estate Sales and Auctions within 50 miles of my home. On Wednesday and Thursday each week I get a list of sales along with photos. I usually only go to those that have something mentioned about sewing, fabric, quilts, machines etc. Narrows my time. Now that some of the Estate Sale houses are getting to know me they call me to let me know I'd be interested to get there early and bring some of my quilting buddies with me. You can also watch Craig's List Garage Sales and you'll find sales there also. Hope this helps. Happy hunting and post your finds so I can ooooo and ahhh! :-)
