I'm never that lucky. My daughter is though. She'll find a $200 winter coat with the tags still on for only $5. She's also found stuff she was looking for with a Free Sign in someone's driveway. The cart for her TV trays broke once and here there was one on the side of the road with 3 trays. Looked like someone didn't want it with just 3 trays. I inherited one of the trays and added batting and a cover. It's now my sewing side table and I press blocks, etc. while sewing.

You can come up from Columbus anytime you want I am just outside of Toledo by the airport
Maybe you could help me arrange my sewing room since it is more crowded by fabric
I am maybe 2 1/2 hours north of you

My so called boot is only about the size of a man's tennis shoe! And it's open toe! I think she'll see if I stuff them in there......

fq in garage sale 141980I'll just have to take a LARGE shopping bag and tell her it's my new purse! Maybe she won't see through the little white lie.....Embarassed I'll try and get enough to share with all of you though. A one stop shop. LOL

I can't speak to the hoarding nature that would make someone have 400 FQs, but one member of our guild had to stop quilting and move close to the hospital. Every member of the guild (about 60) got 5 coordinated high end FQs as a parting gift. Mine went into a blue ribbon quilt. Of course, I never hoard. I have a definite use for each and every part of my very large stash.
Very Happy
