GARAGE SELL FINDS

I am so excited that I was able to go garage selling after 2 1/2 years of not being able to....and so here are my finds.

Spool holder, now if you had read about my Daddy Pfaff, the spool holder was broken on its way here...this will solve that problem for 25 cents....whohooooo




I think I paid a dollar for this fabric, it is about 2 1/2 yards.



This is about 4 1/2 yards for three dollars...really nice feel to it too.



Here is Mickey on panels....just enough for a nice size quilt for a little one.



I had to control myself because at this moment I am trying to decide how in the world I am going to get all this fabric back with me. I haven't shown you all I have brought. Maybe tomorrow I will get organized and show how bad I have been since I have been here.

My mother and sister spent about 20 dollars and got a boat load of fabric, large pieces for backings. They sure were excited...and I was just trying to control myself in buying which I will confess was soooooooooooooooo hard to do.

I"m glad you got to go to garage sales...I know how you've always enjoyed seeing what I've bought at them and wished you could go, too.

Great finds!

Great garage sale finds! I suppose you'll have to ship all your goodies home to yourself! LOL

Great finds. Maybe some space saver type bags will help. If it doesn't fit (or weighs too much) for your luggage you could see if it will fit into a large flat rate shipping box.

Wow Barb you got some great bargains.

My first machine would only take a small spool, so I made a spool holder from a block of wood and a wire clothes hanger. (Thank Goodness I wasn't living with Joan "no wire hangers" Crawford!)

The only way to resist at a yard sale, I've found, is to not go in the first place!!!LOL What a find - you needed a spool thingie and you found one!!!! Good thing you did go!!!!

Knowing how much you love to get packages in the mail :o), I suggest you send all your goodies in a priority box (or two lol). You'll have the joy of finding them twice that way! By the by, my son and I had a great afternoon together on Mother's Day, thanks!
