There are two garment district stores named Butterfly. The one I am about to tell you about is different than the other one I told you about. Get it?
Butterfly Fabrics, Inc. / Bazar Fabrics, Inc.
256 West 39th Street
New York, NY 10018
I bring this up specifically because this Butterfly is different, according to the man behind the counter (don't wanna confuse you), and their offerings really don't compete in the same categories. While they do have a business card giving Butterfly associated websites, those printed links are incorrect, and similar ones are vague about the company's location. For that reason, this is a place you are better off going to in person. The main reason to go to this Butterfly, in my opinion, is just one particular grouping of fabrics I love.
My own clumsy and inadvertent detective work led me to discover that both Butterfly locations (this one, and the 35th Street one) lead you to what seems to be the same generic and vague website. So, yeah, something's up, folks. I don't know what... but something's up...
So, I can't get a good photo in the store, because the print is just too big, and the rolls are heavy and awkward. Think home dec, but who knows what other creative ideas you may have in mind...
The fabrics are prints of some old-timey newspaper articles, western and movie star types, super-big, and printed on an off-white canvas-like fabric. Curious? Wanna see? Go visit them, and then visit again in the 3rd week of September or so, when another shipment of more prints in this family will come in.
Or, so I was told...
