My Morning In The Fabric District

I could have used a cart like this today!

Only someone who loves fabric could spend a half day with me in this part of Paris. I could be there longer but I always run out of cash and my bags get too heavy for me to go into any more stores.
This is my favorite store. We have nothing like it at home.
It has top of the line fabrics already cut into 3 meter pieces. And they are all labeled and priced.
(Some of the prices would make you fall off your chair though.) But the pricing lets you know immediately if you should put something back before you fall in love with it and find out it will be $120 Euros at check out.
I held some pretty spectacular silk today.

When the guard wasn't looking I snapped these two fast photos.

I didn't get a chance to take a picture of my purchases. Too dark right now. But I'll show you soon!
