Field Trip & I LOVE This Place.....

It's goes without saying that I obsess over laces, trims, buttons and such. Anyone that knows me at all realizes my love of textiles. That's why when I visit this place, I am in heaven. Not only do they have all the things I adore, but it is all vintage and/or from garment houses in New York where they buy out the whole lot. That's why when you find something you like, you better buy it, and enough of it to complete your project because it probably won't be there next time.

When you walk in the small 2,000 square foot store you find one half devoted to discounted discontinued clothing AND the other side is my "heaven". The store is in an old building built in the 40's and it has that wonderful old smell that I love. The store is nothing fancy , but everything is very organized and it's easy to shop.....it's just hard to see it all. There are stacks and stacks of buttons, and bins and bins of trims and laces.....not to mention the "zipper wall". Now I know how customers feel when they come into my shoppe and are overwhelmed by the mass of "stuff" and literally looked dazed :) I have "collaged" the pictures for you to give you an idea of the inventory and help you see it all.

If you are in the DFW area and want to know where this store is, please just email me for the info. The owner has been ill and out of the store and the store manager didn't feel comfortable with me giving the name in my blog without his permission....but at least agreed to the photos. So, just email me direct, and I will be glad to share this fabulous place with you.....it's worth the trip if you like textiles, buttons, and trims....AND at wonderful prices !

Thank you so much for stopping by......and even more so for those who comment. I know I am a frequent visitor of many, many blogs but never seem to have the time it takes to stop and leave a comment, so I do appreciate your time. Please know I do visit all of you often and always enjoy my stay......I just wouldn't be able to read as many of you as I do if I waited on my slow computer to let me comment on each. I do love you stopping by!

  7. Oh dear Jana! It is a very good thing that we do not live in your area - they would have to charge "her" rent because she would never want to leave! What a wonderful store, purrsonally I see all kinds of nap spots!!!

    I am so happy to meet your blog kitties - you have Marley and Baby and lots more too! I LOVE humans who open their hearts to homeless cats and dogs! Two paws up!!
