It's no secret...I love fabric. It inspires and motivates me. I often spend late nights cruising etsy, ebay and my favorite online stores oogling fabric. This is some of my favorite fabric and I was surprised today to see some of this fabric being offered for $45 for a fat quarter on etsy. Let's do a little math $90 for a half a yard....$180 a yard. Who charges that? Also on my mind, who pays that?
I know that the fabric is hard to find. I know that folks can charge whatever they want. I know about the free market, and scarcity. I also know that I can't support it. First, I simply can't afford to....$10 a yard for quilt shop quality fabric stretches my budget. But, in my mind, it's pretty over the top...bordering on sleazy. I'd rather use mine up and be happy with it than support this kind of retailing.
What do you think?
I have lots of new projects in the works and lots to show you...I'm off enjoying Chicago and spending some time with my hubby...so, it'll have to wait. Thanks for all the love and advice for Ben. We embarrassed him, but he was flattered too. Especially appreciated the bargain laundry offer...thanks Julie!
