My Trip to the Wrong side of the tracks Fabric store

29 Jan

Yesterday, when the weather was nice and warm, I wanted to hit a fabric store that I had never been to before – Fabric & Upholstery Outlet 1101 Southwest 59th Street, Oklahoma City, OK.  Rumored to have an unpredictable inventory of great and affordable fabrics, I had been chomping at the bit to go there.

Located next to an empty store in a strip mall, I was blown away how wonderful it was.  It was like heaven, just tables, racks, bins, everywhere full of wonderful, affordable fabric.  Tripping over the large inventory in the way too small space, it was like I was on a treasure hunt searching for the perfect, unique, fabulous fabric.   Oh how I scored.

Not only was the fabric wonderful…. the place was not busy so I was afforded the opportunity to have a wonderful chat with the one sales woman on the floor.

Just goes to show great things come in little stores.

    Just stumbled onto your post and it remnded me of the first time I stepped foot in my local favorite – Gail K Fabrics, in Atlanta. I was too dumbstruck for atleast an hour, to do anything more than just oogle! Rolls and rolls stacked upon bolts and bolts of the most lusciuos fabrics! Silks, satins, linens, tafettas, charmueses, chiffons, woolens, knits of every kind, and the laces! Embroidered, sequined, beaded, bordered, netted, everything you could ever dream of and more. Buttons, trims, cordings, appliques, linings, eyelets, it just went on and on! Only another die hard seamstress can truely appreciate the gifts and creativity to be found within the corners of such a treasure trove!
