    WOW!

    Not in my neck of the woods, otherwise I would be tempted.

    Either the dearly departed was in business selling crafting notions & supplies, or a serious hoarder (albeit a very clean & organized one). So many of her/his rulers, scissors, rotary cutters (etc) were still in the original packaging and she/he had multiples of many of them.

    Do love the light bar above her quilting table!

    I noticed the multiples of a lot of things too. You would almost have to go with a shopping list.

    Do you suppose this was a business that folded? Way too much stuff for an individual to have, even with a very generous hubby!

    Looks like the hubby collected his own tools! I thought maybe my hubby might be interested, but wrong timing for both of us. Looks like a lot to look through! Would be a lot of fun to attend!

    Serious hoarder and or dealer. I went to a sale last year where the whole house and
    garage was stacked several feet high with fabric. This looks to be more of a fabric notion/supply
    sale. Great assortment of treasures! If I lived close I would go, wonder how good the prices will be.

    Maybe we should rent a bus to take the forum gang to the sale.

    Whoa, this had to be a quilt store offering classes. I cannot imagine that much stuff. Too many multiples of same items. The person also loved to entertain and obviously had all the gadgets. It reminds me a bit of my FIL home. Hoarder and shopping channel addict.

    My/our kids are very happy that I keep things in check. Helping DH to get rid of items he no longer uses, or items he says he will fix. Nothing new comes in unless something goes out. Sometimes 2-3 things go out, and nothing comes in.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    OMG I can't believe it, my dd lives 15 minutes away from Elburn so I would totally go and check it out. But I am in Colorado on vacation and not flying home until the day after the sale ends!!! Bwaaa! I I could cry! I could send my daughter but she knows nothing about quilting or sewing. Oh why does this have to happen this week?!!!
