Half Price Sale - Ashburton

Dropped into 2 OpShops in Ashburton today, picked up a few patterns, a dress for Gr.daughter and this large, lovely piece of fabric.

The fabric was from the Support Services Op Shop by the Railway line in Ashburton High Street,  TODAY was HALF PRICE DAY on all stock... in fact they said their SALE would run from today (Wed) thru to Saturday.  May have to pop back again tomorrow to see if anything else takes my fancy. They are only open 1/2 days Saturday, but I did notice they have changed their Monday hours, they are now open from 10am every day, even Mondays.

the fabric  is Profusement from the Joy of Spring Collection, designed by  Greeff.. printed in England for Warner...[seems to be a heavy cotton]

 Only big problem I have is it is musty smelling... guess I'll have to hang it on the line outside for a few days and hope it freshens up.  I do NOT want to wash and iron it if possible, until I decide what to do.  There are 3 large pieces, each approx. 2½ to 3 meters long!.

I have been in that shop quite a few times, but I never find anything that grabs me. They do have a lot of stock though, and I'm sure I'll strike gold one day!
