Valuing vintage fabric (flour sacks)
I stumbled on 14 feed sacks at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago. Four of them had been opened up, ten were intact, all in good to excellent condition, apparently saved over the years by some dear old lady who was going to make something out of them and never did. Mostly florals, no fading, 5 red/pink, 5 blue and 4 purple, a few duplicates. These sacks will yield at least one square yard of material each and could be no older than 1950’s. What a great find, I figure at least two quilts out of the stack. I intend to sell them as a lot, but have gotten a wide range of possible prices. Has anybody out there ever purchased feed/flour sacks and if so, how much did you pay for good condition items?
