What advice can you give me? Apart from ‘take large bags and a credit card, and don’t exceed your luggage limit’?
I’ll be in San Francisco next week for an American Chemical Society Meeting. I have some time free on the last day before I start the long and boring plane flight back to Australia. Thanks, Qantas, for scheduling flights out of the West Coast at midnight!
Last time I was in San Francisco I stumbled on a vintage fabric shop (Urban Burp) by accident. This was an awesome store, and I have a skirt to remember it by but the shop has moved since and is temporarily closed.
So, where should I go?
My googling tells me I could try these spots:
- Britex Fabrics, 146 Geary St
- Satin moon fabrics and Fabrix, both on Clement St.
- Discount Fabrics, 2315 Irving St
- Fabric Outlet, 2109 Mission St
- Mendels, 1556 Haight St
- Stone Mountain and Daughter, if I have time to get to Berkeley
What do you think? Have I missed something? I’m staying close to Union Square, I’ll be relying on public transport and have about 5 hours to shop…
And if you’re in San Francisco next Thursday, would you like to meet up?
