Just wanted to add a decent thrift store to the list:
Dorcas in Cary on Maynard Rd.  It has garage sale prices and they get new stuff daily. Not good for clothes, but I've gotten some cheap chairs that I refinished, some glasses, kitchen wares, etc. They even have some 1/2 price days that are really awesome. My last good buy was a sturdy wooden chair that I just needs cushions recovered. Price? $5.00!

I personally love the Raleigh Flea Market, though I confess, I haven't bought any craft supplies there...


Forgot to mention, that I agree with you regarding the Goodwills and Salvation Army.  Furniture and other non-clothes items are junk.  Although, when I was doing cloth dolls, I'd love buying pure silk blouses for $4, know that I would be using the blouse not to wear, but as fabric.  I am also not very thrilled with the flea market at the State Fair Grounds.  Other flea markets, in other states, had the most wonder eccletic stuff that could not only be used for decorating, but for crafting at reasonable prices.

Me too they have really great vintage items there.  Sometimes a little pricey though.

Granny's Panties is a thrift store in Durham. It's located on Guess Road just north of I-85.

Not necessarily true. I did find some panties that looked like granny's. ;-> Wink Undecided

I love Original Ornament too but <I can't afford it!> I know beads are getting pricier everwhere, but ouch! ouch!

I like the UNC warehouse, and the 2 locations of the PTA Thrift Store. The one at Village Mall rocks!
I like the Raleigh flea market for vintage and antique furnishings, along with Craigslist.

There's also the really really free market in carrboro the 1st Saturday every month. Creative crafters alert! Everything there is FREE!

My question is what is the difference between announcements & advertising? Maybe I didn't read Craftster's fine print close enough (bad eyesight?) Are both allowed on these boards?

The Scrap Exchange in Durham (http://www.scrapexchange.org/) is having a Worm Compost Bin class on April 14 at 7 pm. The cost is $40. Materials and worms are included! You have to sign up ahead of time.

I am promoting this because I am the only person signed up and there need to be 8 people in order to have the class.

With a worm bin, you can compost even in an apartment!
