Save money on upholstery fabric by protecting it from the sun. Fabric has a limited amount of time it can be exposed to the sun before it fades.  This is expedited by the direct rays of the sun.  Keep curtains closed or move furniture to protect it from the sun so that your upholstery fabric will last longer and be thrift friendly.
