|sorting Valdani threads for the sale|
As a group, we had so much displayed that some people who stopped in were confused. We repeated many times that we were just a multi-family garage sale (not a quilt shop). Our group's garages weren't big enough, so we rented an empty store.

On day #2, our prices were reduced 50%. We decided to extend the sale to 3 days, hoping "word of mouth" would be sufficient to bring in buyers, and we dropped prices to 75% off Sun. afternoon. A lot more went out the door.
(I took home most of my 1800s repros before Sunday. I just couldn't sell them for $1/yard.)

One more thing -- a shout-out to Jean from Virginia. She was spending a month in Iowa, visiting her mother Maxine. She heard about our sale and came 2 days (or was it all 3?) Besides fabric shopping, Jean bought the majority of my Valdani thread. When she offered to buy my sample pages of Valdani stitching, I gladly gave it to her. I know she'll put it to good use. I hope your boxes of "goodies" shipped home were waiting for you when you got back, Jean.
