Love Ebay

I am having our peach club chairs recovered and been waiting for a sale at Calico Corners since the fabric we picked out is $60 a yard. While I was waiting I did a search on Ebay and found 11 yards of Robert Allen gray wool upholstery fabric (the exact yardage I needed). $73 dollars later all 11 yards are mine. This is a lighter color gray than I originally planned, but you cannot beat the price. Now that I have the fabric I am ready to get the chairs recovered, but the reupholster is booked until after Thanksgiving.

Also on Ebay I purchased these vintage show ribbons. I have a small collection that I have purchased (and even won in my younger years) that I am planning on creating a collage. This will be a long process before I have enough, but it is fun looking for more on Ebay at auctions.
