Paron Fabric is closing... but you didn't hear it from me...

Peter, the wonderful blogger from Male Pattern Boldness has posted about this garment district store's closing, and after checking my sources, I believe him.


Know this: I didn't want to. Stores are vanishing one by one, and the district is getting tighter.  To be fair, there is still ALOT of fabulousness to be found, and some newer stores with inventory that is just TO DIE 4, but it is always sad to see one with such a successful history go.  The faces of the staff members I have really grown to love, despite a few head-butts over the years...

I'll miss this place.  If you see that beautiful striped French Terry I've been stroking for months and never purchased many Speakeasy tourists know about it/have seen it), please BUY IT and make something, if only to tease me!  I simply never bit the bullet and bought it, and it may be too late when I go.

The tough lesson learned here?  If you see it, and you love it, buy it.  It will help keep the store in business, help you achieve your  own creative ideas, and fuel the creative endeavors and dreams of others when they see it.
