I must be getting old and crotchety! I really wasn’t impressed with this years’ garage sale held at the local Quilt Shop…I won’t bore you with the details but let’s just say it wasn’t fun…and Garage Sales are suppose to be all about having FUN…and getting deals…and there weren’t too many of those either!
I dragged Kim out of bed at the crack of dawn…picked her up at 7:15am…got to the shop at 7:45…and we got in line…Here’s the line-up…
Yup…we were the line! And here are the tables…looks like a funeral doesn’t it! The GS didn’t start until 8am…so we shivered and shook til 8…(3C…it’s cold here on the desert first thing in the morning!) By 8 there was a small group of us all huddled together for warmth…group hug everyone? The owner counted down the SECONDS on her iPhone for the sale to begin! If my hands weren’t so stiff and frozen I would have done something to that phone and it wouldn’t have anything to do with quilting! Oh..SHE was having fun…the rest of us, not so much!
Looks like bodies doesn’t it? I don’t know what all the secrecy was about…it was either something REALLY good or something REALLY bad!
I didn’t take any pics of the actual feeding frenzy as the fingers couldn’t unfold to get any snaps…but I will show you what I bought.
I went to last years’ sale and the prices were way better…I know…the price of fabric has gone up…yadayada…! All bundles last year were $6-10…this year they were all over $10…this little bundle was $13.51…what’s with the penny?…why not round up or down? Told you…feeling crotchety!! But I mean really…a penny!!
I forgot about the bundles…just not a great deal and focused on the Remnant bags…they were $6 to 10 a bag…got two of those…one for $6…
And one for $8…
I also bought this UFO…YUP…just what I need, someone else’s unfinished project…but it was only $10…the only DEAL to be had!
It’s small and will make a cute table topper…and I love the Japanese fabrics!
Ohhh…and the good part! The owner of the Fabric Store was sweet enough to prepare goodie bags for EVERYONE who attended the GS…with a slight catch…you had to wait till 10am to receive it!! Yup, you heard me…wait around in the cold to receive the nicely wrapped wee ruler and chap stick…which you would need after licking your lips so often to keep the frost off!! OR I guess you could kill the almost TWO HOURS shopping in her store? Do you get where I’m going here…?
All in all…we should have stayed in our nice warm beds!! Yup, I’m getting OLD and crotchety!! Crotchety P just doesn’t have the same ring to it as Sweet P…dang!
Have a SUNNY Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P
