Mr. Squash and I are in the City of Roses, Portland, Oregon. We drove over yesterday morning and plan to spend a few days. On the way into town we stopped at Fabric Depot. I've ordered from them over the internet, but have told by friends who have actually been there that it's a must see!
I planned to take a lot of pictures inside, but once we walked in the door I knew that would be a difficult task - there is SO much to see! This is the view as you walk in the door. You just can't imagine how big this place is until you've been inside. And yesterday everything in the store was 25% off! Be still my heart. We headed straight to the notions side of the store where I began filling up our cart. One of the very helpful floor gals asked if we needed any help so Mr. Squash asked her where was the batting section as he knew I wanted to stock up on wool batting. She pointed to the other side of the store (about a football field away) and said it was way off yonder!
Along the way I saw this section of buttons - just look at the selection!! To the right were dozens of button rounders! Since I wasn't sure what I would be making next I had to hold myself back as there were other things I really wanted and our cart was rapidly filling up!
Bolts of fabric were everywhere - designer fabrics, home dec, upholstery, clothing, quilting, and much more - my, oh, my! Here was a brightly colored designer - and it was all 25% off! I spied a section of Jo Morton which contained some hard to find cheddars -- into the cart they went! Mr. Squash, bless his heart, stood in line for the cutting table while I tried to see more! I could have spent hours in there but goodness knows we had many other things to do. I will definitely go back next time we're in town!
I had to show you this wonderful bronze doggie and watering dish outside out hotel! isn't he cute? Today we're headed to the Sellwood Antique district and if time permits, a trip to Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe. Hopefully I can get a lot more pictures for you!
