We initially went looking for a wine rack. I had read that someone turned a wine rack into a storage space for all of their spray bottles of adhesives and starches and the like. Sounded good to me as I had mine all stacked on a shelf. I found one, accordion style at the 2nd store we went to. Darn! the hunt was over, or so I thought. We continued on, hunting and digging. Found a stamp collectors book with all of the stamps inside, $1.98! The stamps inside are worth more than that. Just goes to show that they haven't a clue as to what they get donated. Then we came across an oak CD tower, excellent condition. My concern about the according style wine bottle holder was that it was too far apart and the shorter spray bottles would fall out, so this CD tower was great! $7.98..SOLD
We were about to turn for home and decided to make one more stop, glad we did. For $34.84 I purchased, what I roughly figure to be about $450.00 worth of fabric at retail prices. Some of the fabric is vintage (naturally) but most is from the late 90's to early 00's. There was a lady there watching what I was doing, pulling all these bags off the wall and holding this armload of packages as my DH ran for a cart, (we never take a cart because we never buy anything needing a cart) just waiting to pounce on the area I was gathering from and as a mater of fact, she did when we left, but there was nothing left!
99% of these fabrics came from Keepsake Quilting, the two down front are from Ben Franklin and all are new and were in the original shipping plastic with the original care instructions.
So here is the find.. let me break it down for you and keep in mind, most package were $1.99 and a couple are $2.99. What decent fabricholic could pass this up?!
