Not bad, spend about 15 dollars and got a heap of fabric, a ball of wool and lots of elastic.

$2 to get in if anyones still looking at going.

Ive just been, got around $40 of fabric :oops: Would of spent way more if I had a girl. Was so in love with the old flannel one table had but it was orange flowers and pink flowers :( I love how thick it was.
Got 7m of green striped flannel ($2/m wahooo) and 3m of green knit ($2/m helllll yeah \:D/ ), its so nice, a gorgie '70s cotton with yellow/orange flowers, again I love how thick and dense fabric use to be, some denim, and a random flower fabric and the green elephant fabric that apperently lots of people had been eyeing up, I went back like three times to look at it before I got it, its way more m's then Ill ever use but I tihnk its cute :smt005
I was eyeing up lots of paisley cuts but the pricing was a bit steep for what I had in mind.
The ladies where so lovely. Altho the lady at the door was so busy talking she took ages to take my $2 I pretty much had to force it in to her box :twitch:
And sadly all the wool was girly or plain

Now to prewash the flannel and make some jamies :whip: (poor DS is gonna be wearing green striped PJs for the rest of his childhood :smt044 )

I was in love with the flannel at first sight :smt044 but had to go back three times before I found the darn lady that owned it and get a price off her! Was a bit put off by the meterage until she said $2/m then I took it all and ran :smt044
