The Mother Load

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I love garage sales and can't resist the urge to stop. This past Sunday, on the way home, my husband and I stopped at a garage sale. There was a lot of junk and some jewelry. I bought a pretty little bracelet for $1 and as we were about to leave, I spotted a huge bag of wool roving for $1.00. I was shocked that the woman was selling, probably about 3 lbs of wool roving for $1.00. I casually asked her if she had anymore. She directed my husband and I to another building next to the one we were in and said there was a few more bags in there. We proceeded to walk to the next building, oh my gosh, we found another 25 bags of roving. Now I was thinking that for a dollar a bag, I had hit the mother load of sales for the day. Well, the woman said we could have all of the bags for FREE!!!! We also found some wool yarn, some raw wool and last but not least a beautiful hand made quilt that we were given as a bonus for taking all the wool "off her hands". Believe me when I say, I could not stuff the bags in the car fast enough, before the woman changed her mind. I will have enough roving to stuff pincushions to my hearts content. I was so excited when I was in the building that I did not take the time to really look around. Needless to say I am going back this week to see if I can find anything else that I might need.
