Sunday Stash- Fabric accident.

Most Saturdays I go to our local farmer’s market. My good friends and former neighbors sell there, so it’s nice to see them and be out in the community. Right next to that is the flea market. I will often browse through. I’m a sucker for estate sales and old stuff.

I’ve been really good this month to not buy fabric. Until….

I came upon a booth at the flea market that was ALL FABRIC. A man’s wife died a few weeks ago and he was selling her MASSIVE STASH. It was all in pristine condition and sorted and stored so well. So many kinds of fabric and notions. Designer fabric. Batiks. Foreign fabric. Insert eye boggle.

This was one small corner.

So I went through her stash and filled two plastic garbage bags. I could have easily done more damage, but I showed restraint!

Here are the ones I walked away with.

This is so fun!

Sometimes you can’t walk away from a great deal. 🙂
