Rummage Sale Giveaway (closed)

WINNER UPDATE:  Billie from Colorado, you are the winner of this giveaway.
This wasn't just your average church rummage sale.  Once a year there is a church basement rummage sale in my city exclusively for sewers and knitters run by a fibre arts guild. I came home with a wee bit o' fabric...
I was like a kid in a candy shop.  Almost all the fabrics were over a metre.  What a deal!
 Whole bolts of trims - 50 cents each
 A grab bag of ric rac, piping and binding ($2.00)
 More delicious trims...
 A bag o' pink buttons (50 cents)
 My most pricey single item, a pressing ham (used for pressing rounded edges like sleeves) $2.00
 Vintage sewing magazines free
Everything at the sale was donated by local sewers and knitters and all the proceeds go to charity.  Since you all couldn't be there today, I thought I'd share with a giveaway.  One winner will receive a mish mash package in the mail from me with various fabrics and trims.

TO ENTER:
Simply leave a comment below to be entered.  I will choose a winner via Random.org really late the night of Monday April 11th, so you have until then to enter.  Followers, you can enter twice.  Just leave a second comment saying you follow.

I am so jealous, I might even ask my church to have one of thee, I am curious where all the donations come from - companies or church parishioners?

I hope you pick me.

Thanks for the heads up on the sale, I managed to get there myself today! I found some awesome deals, but wish I hadn't brought my hubby & kids so I could have looked longer, there was TONS and TONS of stuff! I just couldn't believe it & it was pretty well organized for that amount of stuff!!

Hello! I've just come across your cute blog, and am now insanely jealous about the rummage sale you attended! I figured I'd pop in and leave a comment, just in case. :)

sewingonpins[at]gmail[dot]com

I have to say, I think all the things you make for kids is absolutely adorable. Almost makes me want kids myself! :D

Cricket said...

Wow. Just... wow. I went to a fabric and rummage sale yesterday and while I did get a couple yards of fabric, there were no trims or buttons or any of that sort of thing I was hoping for. You are super lucky to have that once a year!

Cricket said...

I'm a follower, too. Or maybe a subscriber. Heck maybe I'm both 'cause I'm techno-challenged, too.

KatieQ said...

I have to admit, I am a button freak. I have jars of them that I will probably never use. When I taught nursery school, I would bring my jars to class and dole them out miserly for special projects. The children in my classes always flipped when I brought my button jars in. They appreciated that I was sharing a special treasure with them.
Of course, I also have a drawer full of lace edging, piping, bias, and zippers from the days when I was convinced I would sew all of my daughter's clothing. She's 22 and graduating from college next month so I'll have to save what I have in the hopes I will have a grandchild to sew for someday.
I think I need more.

Ooh, yummy! Fabric, buttons, and trims that I can use on cards are weaknesses of mine.
