We returned from our wonderful Road Scholar trip on Thursday. I hope to post the travelog tomorrow -- many photos, many great discoveries.
Friday afternoon (yesterday) I went to an estate sale in Wadsworth, the next town west. I mostly wanted to see the house (here). The bookstore/library display shelving on the upper level is an efficient way to store a lot of media but certainly unexpected in such a house.
It was the second day of the sale so prices were reduced 25%. There was so much stuff that there were other discounts. The finished basement was FILLED with women's clothing, much of it unworn. (Eclectic sources: Chico's to Target to Wal-Mart.) Books/magazines were reduced to 4 for $1. Out of several hundred cookbooks I bought two published by local churches. (I will give them to the library for the local history collection.) I bought a dozen quilt books and magazines.
Where there are quilt books there is likely to be fabric.
Unused tea towels and three unopened packages of Montgomery Ward bandanas (4 per pkg), .75 each.
Quilt fabric was priced by small (1 yd and under), medium (2 yds), and large pieces (3 yds+). I took all that appealed to me. Price: $73. At home I measured: 72 yards. $1 per yard isn't bad!
