I know we always went out to the big Hancock fabric store. One year there was a contest between a group of ladies, of who could buy the most fabric. well more than one lady bought a $1000.00 worth of fabric. I bet it is still stacked in her sewing studio to, don't you?
The ladies from Japan bought complete bolts to have shipped back to there home town.
That reminds me of an estate sale I went to back years ago , I guess the first one where I spent lots of money $300 it was lots of money to me. Anyway she had a sewing room in an attached building to her house. she had this sewing lady sew drapes, chair covers. clothing and there was enough material at that sale to open a quilt shop today. It was so much fun. I still have an old tin Santa candy mold I got at that sale. a friend Betty went with me and I had a small nissan car , anyway I had every space packed with items I bought that day. I told Betty to get in the car and I packed dishes, materail and every other thing I could get all around her under her feet. It was so much fun. we laughed about that for a long time. She said she was not going to be left there so she let me pack her in also. Betty lives in Plano Texas today.
Here is the other picture of my books I was wanting to show.Julia's book then letters to Bess Truman from Harry. Magnolia Pearls book, French General books which I am crazy about. I love that red material she has in her book. There is an old Charles Dixon book dated 1938 . Did you see my Paula Deen Christmas books? Not 1 but 2 . They are real small books. Red and love them.
I am planning a trip to Savannah Georgia next month.
