Yes...that's right...fabric by the pound among other things. "All About Fabrics" is located in an old mill and is only open one weekend a month. I had an interior designer friend that opened my eyes to it last year and I've been going ever since. They also have fabric by the yard, notions and trim at really good prices. If you go, you will also want to take window measurements because they sell Smith + Nobel blinds at unbelievable prices and upholstered cornice boards. I was lucky enough to find two relaxed roman shades for $38.00ea that I'm sure would have cost me $500+.
It's just like most of shopping trips, I go with a few things in mind and end up with so many other things before I get home. I hope to turn the darker gray chevron fabric into two lumbar pillows for a couple of Mitchell Gold white linen slip covered wing chairs in my living room. A great way to add a design trend to your interior with very little cash. If your a quilter, you can also pick up quilt batting. I purchased some all natural wool batting for my mother who has been quilter for as long as I can remember.
There is always someone to help you with questions and maneuvering those heavy bolts of fabric into your cart. You definitely need to go if you've never been and be prepared to get overwhelmed and be pleasantly surprised with the prices...and also,last but not least, to have a really fun day if your a lover of fabrics like me!
