    Cruising the Classifieds

    I was cruising through the online classifieds of a local paper this morning and stumbled across an obscure notice. Someone about 30 miles away is selling fabric at $2/yd. Or $30 for the entire trunk and all the fabric in it. I gave her a call, and she said it's an old metal footlocker, about 3 feet long and maybe 28 - 24" deep. Full of cotton fabric.

    I'm picking it up Saturday.

    Pictures to follow
    If you can't see it from 50 yards away on a galloping horse, it doesn't matter.

    wow, hope it turns out to be great fabric. The trunk alone is probably worth that.

                Hoping for a very successful 'find'. How fun!!

                it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
