Thrifting with Heather

Want to see what $6 can get you at the thrift store if you have insider tips from Heather, the professional thrifter?? How about 6 bags of fabric...

Here are the stacks of lovely cottons en masse...
These flannels were a part of the bagged up thrifted fabric score.

And now for fun, some close ups of the others grouped by colour...






Can I tell you how I was totally mind-numb from realizing that I amassed all this yardage for a mere $6? Wow. My scrappy themed quilting stash just received a major boost without a major drain to my wallet. Now, are there any questions as to why I like thrifting?
* A huge thank-you to Heather for leading me to best thrifted fabric haul I've ever had. (Hopefully you don't now think that you have to bait me with fabric in order to get me to cross the dreaded bridge to visit with you ... although it did work yesterday...;o)

I am so jealous :) I got some fabric for free the other day at a garage sale so I guess I didn't do too badly either! I really, really like the cream (what looks like) garden tools, matched up with the green leafy pattern (the one way to the right). That would make an awesome handbag or something!
