I have been shopping at Lincoln Fabrics in Venice, California for over 20 years. Every home I've lived in since I first discovered this store has had curtains made from fabric purchased at Lincoln Fabrics. It is one of those big cavernous places, sort of messy, full of hidden treasures, staffed by hip but sulky design students. It has been in business since 1948. It was always an adventure to shop there.
Just last week I went on a long awaited visit and noticed that it just didn't seem the same...
The windows looked a little off.
The shelves were abnormally messy.
Oh No! Lincoln Fabrics is Closing at the end of this month!
I only had a few bucks in my pocket but I had to get to work. This would be my last chance.
|This photo is blurry because I was getting dizzy with excitement!|
I got completely lost in the novelty print section.
Here is my final purchase:
|I could not resist this cowboy fabric.|
So that's the end of Lincoln Fabrics. Even this unicorn on display couldn't save it.
Good bye Old Friend. Thanks for Everything. I will miss you.
