So everyone knows that, along with being cheap, I loves me a good deal.
Getting something for a song thrills me like nothing else.
It even one-ups sex, in that bargain hunting is a challenge and bargain finding, a surprise. Sex and orgasms are a pretty much a sure thing.
Anyhow, my friend Judy called me with some info:
A former quilter/sewing teacher recently passed away and her children had organized a charity event, selling 70 years worth of crafty accumulation.
Now, let’s gloss over the fact that a woman had to die for my night of purchasing to occur and get straight to the good part.
The Bin of Supreme Awesomeness
The rules were thus: Anything and everything I could fit in this bin = $40. And I got to keep the bin.
The bin held a lot.
This hideous, but super-practical, project bag. I need another project back like a need a hole in the head, but there was still room in my bin, so home it came.
Two skeins of Dream in Colour Classy (in Flamingo Pie) and a set of Hiya Hiya 16″ circular needles.
I’m not sure that I’ll use this, as it’s an organizational tool, and I can’t keep organized to save my life, but I’ve seen them at Fabricland and they looked useful.
And just to show that I’m not the most selfish mother in existence (I have to rate above Joan Crawford, surely), I picked up some art stuff for Behbeh.
I wish I’d been able to find more batik, but at least these three pieces are of generous size. ~2 meters of each, maybe?
SO MUCH FABRIC. Everything is 100% cotton. Most are pretty generous pieces although there are a few fat quarters in there too. I tried to get more neutrals and backgrounds that would go with whatever.
Did I mention I got all this for $40?
An excellent evening all ’round.
