Check out this huge lot of fabric. It looks like the area is north of Peoria, Illinois.

Too bad I live so far away or I would definitely be tempted...of course I don't have room for hardly any more fabric...but that looks good!

Robin, are you trying to get us all in trouble with your Craigslist browsing?

When I first started quilting, I found fabric on Craigslist, about 100 fat quarters:).

Holy cow..........I'm guessing someone on this forum just jumped in their truck and headed to Peoria! :D

Oh wow! I wouldn't have storage for that much fabric, but it sure would be tempting if I was in the area!

At $4 a piece for those totes (don't ask me how I know:icon_rolleyes:) that is $64 worth of totes. So the way I look at it is you are buying storage totes and getting a lot of free fabric. Would be tempted if: #1: I was closer #2 had a place to put it all.

Ithought she said the totes aren't part of the deal, the buyer should bring their own, AND A MOVING VAN!

You are correct...this is in Missouri. I was looking at the add...and I thought wow how interesting they have an Appleton city north of their springfield...lol then i clicked on the map and there was a Montrose....so I zoomed out and yep..in Missouri. Wish I had the time to go get it.

I guess I didn't read it all, but that would make sense. Still, would be a great deal for someone in Missouri, right?

Not at Lake of the Ozarks. The area code down there is 573. It is Appleton City MO. I have no idea where that is. The ad is from May 7th too.

Looks like I should have done my research a little better on which state this was located. Nonetheless, it sure is a good deal for someone out there. Wish I was closer. Kellie,109.2 miles isn't that far, I give you my full permissions to go snatch up as much as you can fit in your vehicle!!!

It would be hysterical if Kellie showed up and there were several other forum members there at the same time! I can just see them all....sitting on the driveway........sorting fabric together........deciding who gets what.........that would be fun!! :D
