Where to get cute fabric for cheap?
It seems like I can't get enough of Seattle goodwill. J is still sick. She has a smoker's cough, a very very raw nose and even though her fever is gone we feel like being at home where she gets 2 naps a day is better for her healing. Good thing it's a short and slow week for me.
I went in to work to grab a couple of things and for a meeting I was not going to miss at 8:00am. Well I knew that I was going to be at home today with a waddler and I've got Christmas presents on the brain and decided to stop by goodwill to see what their fabric selection was. For the most part their raw fabric options were bad---but their pillowcase and sheet options rocked! You don't need that much fabric for what I am hoping to make...
So even though I had to wait for her to take her second nap, she finally did and I'm delighted to show you the fabrics I found!
Now on another note, I have a question about Goodwill stores...and the like...are they made for people like me (middle class types) to shop in or when I shop their am I eliminating options for poorer people. I could technically afford to go to a fabric store and buy some fabrics, but I want a good deal as much as the next guy. I also want my less fortunate brothers and sisters to have options just like I do.
On the other hand, Goodwill stores (and the like) need income from shoppers in order to provide the training to their employees. If everyone who shopped their were low income rather than scavengers (like me:)) would they still be able to run with their business model.
Donations...I don't have any hesitations about that. Except, I do think it is unethical to use them as your trashcan or your junk removal rather than sending along actual donate-able items. It sure is tempting though!
