Craigslist Selling - My Fabrics

Bolts For Sale
The downside of buying as many fabrics as I do is that every now and then I do have to decide if I'm going to use each and every one and get rid of those that just never seem to be selected.  Fabrics take up a lot of space and are very heavy so this is an important task.  Following my internal clock (spring cleaning), I start sorting fabrics at least annually.  I have a staging area that grows and grows.  One benefit of this exercise is that, not infrequently, I "discover" a fabric long forgotten and develop a whole new excitement around it.  I probably do end up using at least 33% of these fabrics and get rid of the rest.

I have found that fabrics are very hard to sell since most people (who are not like me) do not want fabrics sitting around waiting for that right project to come along.  I try selling through the local craigslist and also during my own annual garage sale (some will be listed on eBay as well).  Finding the right listing category on craigslist is kind of tricky so I have listed the pieces I am currently selling in different areas of the list:

  • Furniture - By Owner
  • Materials
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Clothing and Accessories

If not sold through craigslist, I plan to donate to Goodwill!
