Estate Sale Anyone????

My trip to New Jersey was more adventure than I ever want to experience again.  Fog delays kept us from landing at our intended airport, La Guardia, and instead we sat on the tarmac at JFK for TWO HOURS.  Ugh.  Yesterday's return trip was nearly as bad.  My 4:45 flight didn't take off for Detroit until 8:30.  I pulled into my driveway at 11:15 pm. -- more than ready for bed!

Had to take this photo and post it here today:
Pay no attention to my apparently dusty monitor....

Tomorrow morning I'm heading out early to attend an estate sale.  If you live in the Detroit area and need love fiber-y things you might want to consider a drive in the country too.  For those of you who've attended the Mt. Bruce show, it's not that much further and you're sure to find some bargains.  Here's the skinny on the sale from Lisa Burmann's website:

I've been helping a friend of mine put together an estate sale for her friend that passed last April.   Mary was an avid quilter who also raised sheep - hence she was a weaver and spinner as well.  Words can't describe how much fabric this woman had!  We grouped it into colors and are selling it very cheaply.  Her husband just wants it out of there and to go to a good home!  All proceeds will be split between their church and Seven Ponds Nature Center. 
 Some of the prices will be:   Magazines  5/$1.00         Books  $1 each 
 There is batting (a lot!), half done quilt tops, half-sewn jackets, patterns, notions, etc.   Did I mention wool????  There's a boatload of fiber and yarn there as well as knitting and other wool related books and magazines.
  Here's the pertinent info: 
 The home of Dr. and Mrs. Duncan
 2601  South Blacks Corners Rd.
 Imlay City, MI  48444 
 (approx 1 mile south of I-69 and 2 miles west of VanDyke)
  10am to 4pm

Hmmm, yes, you need more wool!

Sorry about the travel problems. At least it gave you more time to knit, eh?
