The mother-load

** I do not know why blogger uploaded these pictures and text all wonky!


So there I was driving home one day last week minding my own business and what do I come across? Well I will tell you..... a garage sale in a storage garage filled with fabric. Ummm yeah, I pinched myself, twice.

To the left we have vintage Holly Hobbie and paperdoll print. Below is Gigham made by Pennys. Who knew that Pennys made fabric?





The pile of solids: the blue is a wool blend and the rest are cotton

and twill.. I see capris and summer shorts and this green is a border print in soft cotton soon to be an easy peasy wrap skirt.

I find this funky red mushroom or tree (?) Cord pretty cool and the flowered print is a heavy duck cloth perfect for a table cloth. Did I mention that all this fabric was 50 cents a yard!!







Now may I present direct to you from my shabby deck that is in dire need of a paint job...........

TRIM

These cards were a dollar each and filled with lovely, soft, some vintage trim.




This box contains seam binding, rickrack and ribbon {Grin}, lace of all kinds and even velvet ribbon and rickrack!!




My favorites
Needless to say this was a fruitfull sale leaving me with a smile on my face and a very little dent in my wallet.
