Jan found the bargain of the day
I have a whole pile of small kitchenwares, knic knacs and jewelry items that I need to photograph so they can be sold on Ebay. Rather than set up my large diffused lightbox on the kitchen table I decided its time to build a smaller light box about 18" wide, 18" high and 20" long. I made the frame out of PVC pipe and covered it with white cloth from an old bedsheet but I now needed some colored felt to make the backdrop cloths.
This morning Jan told me she had to go to JoAnn Fabrics to get some stuff for a project she is working on so I asked her to pick me up three pieces of felt 18" wide and about 3" long.
She just came home and told me she got all three pieces, Black, white & green 18" wide x 6' long for a total of $4.50.
She said the bolts of felt are 6' wide so they just cut 1/2 yd of each and when she went to pay for it they told her all the felt was 40% off today.
