Mild Ebay Warning

I know I wasn't the only one that use to buy bucket loads of fabric from Oregonsilver on ebay back before the Tsunami hit. After that, he stopped selling the beautiful (cheap!) silks. Well, I saw that he had some 50% silks back up an bought a beautiful shade of blue silk. I got it the other day and the second I took it out I knew it wasn't silk. When I did the burn test it "dripped" and smelt like burning leaves. I think it's a poly/rayon blend fabric but it's definitely not any type of silk blend.

I'm going to get some white poly/rayon and make some Atlantian banners or maybe some household banners and fans... But it's not good for dress making.
