I managed to pick up some non-roll elastic for 29 cents a yard and I ran across those pins that I will be using next month , for 59cents for a thousand. The little girl made sure I understood that they were there for that price because some of them were tarnished. She did not want me to be disappointed and I thought that was very sweet of her.
One of their rooms is filled with cottons for quilters and there is upholstery fabrics of every kind. There is crafty stuff and bins of buttons and books that are reasonable???? I really do love to visit this shop - not only for the "treasures" -but also because of the people -they are so special and kind and helpful! One of the ladies is a preachers wife and we love her to death. She will take DH aside to a seat to rest his back and she will keep him busy to let me shop to my hearts content! I wish I was rich because I would leave her Big Tips~ I usually feel guilty -but I love it so much that I just Enjoy it! Maybe it is that "sisterhood" thing?? :)
They have built a little general store this year which is really quaint and filled with goodies and they built this wooden water-wheel! It was a real treat to see it run . DH was very interested in this because he has been talking about building one on our creek. We just don't have the knowledge to pull this off -YET- but that has never stopped us from learning before. :) You never know until you try. :)
