Craigslist is a good avenue for finding old sails... if you want the material for crafts perhaps place an ad there that you will pay for shipping - people are always looking for ways to dispose of old sails (free) other than the landfill.
Sails are heavy, though, and shipping costs might get out of hand.

If you just want the sails for the material, contact some sailing clubs that have a racing program. Many will give away the used sails when they're no longer suitable for use as sails.

I am in Missoula, MT. I wouldn't be opposed to paying for shipping, depending on the cost.

can I buy old sails
I am not a sailor, but I am interested in buying old sails that can't be used for sailing anymore. Any suggestions on where to look? How much would I expect to pay? Thanks in advance!
