Discount Fabric Store Heaven x 2!

I’ll tell you what… I lose my marbles in a good fabric store. I’m not going to hide the fact that I can spend hours looking around… imagining all of the sewing and craft opportunities! Well, lucky for me, my recent trip to California yielded not one but TWO fabulous gems of fabric stores that I just have to tell y’all about!

Our first stop was at Fabric Barn in Long Beach. I had heard about this place from another blogger and have been wanting to go for quite some time. You know how hole in the wall restaurants always turn out to have the best food at the cheapest prices… well apply that principle to a fabric store. The Fabric Barn is the quintessential hole in the wall store.

Aisles and aisles of every kind of trim imaginable.

Ric Rac.

Pom Poms.

Lace.

Ribbons.

Ruffles.

Frills.

And the best part? Everything is at wholesale prices…but open to the public. No minimums. All the goodness you want at wholesale prices. Ric Rac was like $2.00 for 25 yards! All sorts of colors, too!

There are ribbons and lace by the spools and also cut-by-the-yard. Fabulous.

I just loved the fact that the checker bagged all of my loot in a trash bag, too. haha

Yes. I’m serious. A trash bag. Peek-a-boo. Do you see my goodies? :)

    I’m jealous! I’m a fabric addict as well but we have nothing close to this here. All I have is Hobby Lobby and Wal Mart :-( I am in awe of all the ribbon. I love pom pom and ric rac. You were one lucky girl to be there!

    Thanks for the info. Since I am in So Cal, I will have to visit them someday. I just need some money first. But luckily, it sounds like I won’t need much.

    OOOH, I have been complaining that we have no good fabric stores and that is why I don’t sew anymore. You have shown me too great stores in my own backyard. Thank you so much for opening my eyes!

    Another So Cal local, Huntington Beach, and both are within 20 minutes of me (barring horrific traffic)! Thank you for the heads up. I have never heard of either of these places. Will be taking what is left of the Christmas cash and be to at least one of them by week’s end! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! (I don’t think that my husband would say the same.)
