Suppose you bought a house, either to rent it out or flip it or what ever. Either way the place has 10 or so boxes of stored clothing, bedding etc in it. What would you do?
Myself I'd start sorting through every last thing with a eye to using the fabric, altering it, seeing what I can make out of it. I wouldn't care if it was a table cloth, a dress , a t shirt a curtain. It's fabric and if it had properties I like I might make something out of it. True, there'd be a lot of trash in there that I wouldn't do anything with. Just ugly fabric or kids clothes with not enough fabric to blow your nose on. But, there'd be some real gems too and it would be a lot of fun.
