I love fabric — especially fabric for home interiors. One of my favorite New England-based spots is Zimman’s in Lynn, Massachusetts. So…the location isn’t so great but the fabrics are to die for and they also have some interesting furniture for sale on the upper levels of the store as well. http://www.zimmans.com/
Another favorite spot is one that Molly introduced me to — Les Tissus du Chien Vert (the green dog) in Brussels. http://www.chienvert.com/ Before Molly lived in Brussels, I wasn’t aware that it’s, in essence, the fabric capital of Europe. This shop and its sister Les Puces du Chien (the dog’s fleas) are just magical. The environment is beautiful and boy, do they ever have a lot of fabric to choose from!
