Fabrics, pottery, paper goods.....the list goes on and on. When we first came here I bought some pieces of furniture here. The clerks here are all heavily invested in every item they sell. I come in regularly so they know me and endure my show and tell because when I puchase something here it's usually to make something else. There are some fabulous things for journaling. And the last time I was here I picked up a killer pack of scraps from Japanese clothing. I am still fiddling with my options.
This is one of the end destinations for our workshop in July.
Here is what I gathered but then I only had a half hour. The gold obi piece is spectacular but I doubt I shall be able to cut into it. However I told them I would do something and bring it in so I may have to close my eyes and cut, like some great sacrifice to the gods of art. The little hand dyed paper bags are for our workshop. I plan on filling them with one of the essentials of life, chocolate!
