Brianne and I headed in, arriving a half hour after the sale began. We missed the earlier rush and encountered a line up of women waiting to pay for their wonderful finds. The lineup extended the length of the Church Hall! Not to worry though, we knew there was many a gem left. Brianne kept well under her $20 budget -- quickly securing a large bag of wonderful finds for $14. I, however, took longer: I found two needlework kits, felt for J's craft projects, a seam guage, zippers, lace, great quality wool and knit fabric....the total was about $26. But as Brianne chatted with a new friend, I wandered to the $1 table. My eye spotted this pink and white plaid fabric. It was rolled up and I unwound it to see how much fabric it actually was.
Voila! Looks like this was sitting in someone's fabric stash for quite a long time. Turns out it's a yard length of fabric sold with a matching zipper and suggestion for the skirt style it would go with, all on a hanger. And, amazingly enough, the zipper was made in Montreal!
