Did you ever get such a good deal on crafty stuff that you just HAD to brag to someone who would understand?? On Friday over lunch, I went to teh JoAnn Fabrics near work. Their remnants were on 90% off, so I picked up a big, gorgeous piece of pale green lace.
After work, I was headed to a singles dinner (whcih turned out to be a complete and total bust), but on the way, there was a JoAnn Superstore (biggest I've ever seen!). So I browsed their remnants and came away with a 2-yard cut of red/blue/gold decorator fabric and a generous swath of black/gold designed decorator fabric.
After church on Sunday, I stopped by the JoAnn's nearby. I found creamy/white lace, pale pink Asian silky blend, a narrow cut of blueish tapestry, and a generous supply of muted gold decorator fabric.
So that's 7 pieces over the course of the weekend, most appropriate for ren faire costuming, which is my current obsession. The original price for all this stuff, if I bought it off the bolt: $82.10. The original markdown remnant price, if I had bought them wihtout the sale: $41.05. The final price I paid: $8.21.
