A few months back I stopped in at one of the small local thrift stores on half off day. They know I am always looking for fabric & took me back to show me a massive amount they had just got it (at least 3 black trash bags full!) Anyways I filled a box for them to measure & I would come back later & get it. WELL they decided they just wanted it out of there & told me $30 for the box :).
Fast forward 3 months… this box of fabric has been sitting in my hall closet waiting to be folded & put away in my new sewing room. Well tonight I finally got to do it! I didn’t realize quite how much fabric was in there. Normally their fabric is only $1 a yard… so .50 a yard on half off days. Well I ended up with 80.25 yards of fabric!!! It worked out to .42 a yard after tax.
Anyways not only was it cheap, but most of it is quality stuff including fabric from Hawaii & Alexander Henry stuff. Nothing was super new, but it’s still awesome. A break down of what I got:
17 yds Shirting/Dress Fabric (not sure of it’s name, but it feels like the nice slinky Hawaiian shirts!)
4.5 yds Hawaiian Linen
3 yds White Eyelet
3.5 yds Micro Suede
10 yds Non-Slip footie stuff for Pj’s
18.5 yds Knits (mostly prints)
Here’s a picture of most of it fabric folded… about 10 yards worth is in the washer right now to try & get some spots out. But otherwise it was all in great unwashed condition! Plus a bunch of fat quarter & 1/4 yd cuts too that I didn’t take a picture of.
