Melbourne has many treasures from lane way bars to art works hidden in the maze that is the city.
one of these very old treasures if you look through its dust windows between gaps in the  yellowed newspaper.

It stands as one of Melbourne’s oldest fabric stores. I remember walking in there as a little girl and seeing rolls upon rolls of fabric to the roof.

On Monday the 9th of june i was able to return.  An despite many people fill boots, trailers, vans and roof racks. There was still hundreds upon thousands of meters of fabric left in store. Unfortunately there was also the lingering odour of water damage, mice and pigeon.

Although nobody could complain for fabric for $ 10 a roll $ 5 a half roll and $ 2 for damaged.

Its a shame to see it go as this but I suggest if your a local melbournian keeping a eye on this one. As there was rumours of another sale.

happy crafting
