Over the last few months I have been (not so secretly) jealous of Oona and her fabric shopping trips, namely her trips to the Michael Levine Loft in the Los Angeles fabric district aka Downtown LA. A few years ago I ventured Downtown and found Michael Levine, but not the Loft that Oona goes to. I have been wanting to go since she posted about it, but honestly I am afraid of driving in LA :( This weekend my husband Luke was kind enough to be my chauffeur and took me to some awesome shops.
Let me tell you about the weather in LA this weekend, HOT!!!!! When we got Downtown at 9:30 am it was already above eighty degrees and the Loft did not have AC. I was literally dripping sweat while sorting through boxes of fabric.
Next we went to a Hawaiian store that carries Hawaiian fabric and NBA fabric. This store had AC which made me very happy. So happy that I forgot to take pictures :( I was in such a good mood that I even bought some LA Lakers fabric for my friend Pari. She watched my dog over the weekend, otherwise I would NEVER buy Lakers fabric (I'm a LA Clippers fan).
Here are my treasures:
