We might have to have a 2 or 3 part series on Drygoods Design alone - because there a LOT to show&tell about this fabric store / speakeasy / craft classroom / event space.
Drygoods is a little tucked away on Ballard Ave, thus the "speakeasy" part of my earlier description. The entrance is through Anchored Ship Coffee, and up a handful of steps. I will admit that I used my baby stroller as an excuse for not visiting the shop sooner because I knew once I made it in....
I would be entirely lost to myself....
I happened to be there when UPS delivered the latest from KOKKA, and it was all I could do to keep from opening the boxes myself.
It's a very special store where you can leave, having spent a not insignificant amount of money, and feel like you got away with something! I felt so giddy about the cute fabrics I was taking home, I had to stop at Velouria to show Amanda. She liked the fox print too.
The "I" in this post is Chika, and I make R&L Goods notebooks and wallets. I can't wait to turn the lovely fabrics pictured above into notebooks and wallets this week. They'll soon be available at Velouria, where I'll happily tell customers where I found such cute prints!
Thank you Keli, for curating such an inspiring fabric shop!
