Last time we went to Fabric-a-brac, it was held in Brooklyn. I got a whole load of bargains, including a bolt of vintage cream lace and a swathe of black jersey for $10 each. This time they had expanded into the St Anne's Hall in Newtown, and the selection was just as excellent. Here are a few of the things I bought:
Aztec-ish sweatshirting, cream cotton canvas, white linen, flannel check, ochre corduroy, burgundy corduroy and barely pictured, a lovely brown vintage floral blend. Also not pictured is my one regretted purchase: 3 metres of white and pink seersucker stripe. What am I going to do with that?? I'm not a baby pink person at all, but it's all for a good cause and I am sure I will find a use for it at some point.
