I took a load of books over to Half Price Books so I could trade them at a loss for new story books. I've saved a few which I hope might appeal to some of you.

The Materials and Techniques of Medieval Paintings by Daniel V. Thompson. Brand new, never been opened (it's a duplicate) $10
The Fashionable Dancer's Casket, or the Ball-Room Instructor by Charles Durang. 1996 reprint of the 1856 work. New condition. $5
Biological Evidence from Anglo-Scandinavian Deposits at 16-22 Coppergate (The Archaeology of York: The Environment) by H. K. Kenward and A. R. Hall. It's a bit banged up from traveling in a suitcase. $50 obo
1000 Hats by Norma Shephard. New condition. $30
The Folkwear Book of Ethnic Clothing by Mary S. Parker. Hardcover. Minor wear. $15
The Thyroid Solution by Ridha Arem, M.D. Paperback. $10

No, drat. Nearly a milestone.

I have finished cataloging all of the plastic-binned fabric for sale, save for the one filled with quilting cotton. 263 pieces for sale so far, plus all the scraps.* That's half a closet of silks and velvets, eleven 66-quart bins of fabric pieces, and three bins of scraps, all for sale.

I've also found a distressing number of incomplete projects, completed garments that no longer fit, random patterns, and weird-ass shit people have given me because "hey, you sew, I have this XX that was my mother/aunt/neighbor's..."

[livejournal.com profile] callistotoni was by yesterday and got to see some of the bounty. She said a lot of "L needs this" and "C needs that" and "this is J's color palate". I hope y'all come by and concur :-)


* Darn you, 2 yard long strip that's 14 inches wide. And you, the diamond-shaped yard-long piece. You're too large to be discarded as scrap, but not large enough to make a garment. You know who you are.

Hey brewing friends, we have a few (empty, clean) beer bottles that want a good home. If any of y'all would like them, let me know.

Also, we have a table-mounted White sewing machine that is free to a good home. It only does a straight stitch, but it does it very well. It will need a tuneup before it's ready to run.
