Buying More Fabric at Fabric World

I have previously written about the great fabric deals available in the Atlanta area at Fabric World.

Fabric World Incorporated(770) 413-76551555 E Park Place Blvd, #C,Stone MountainGA
Given my strong passion for fabrics and the fact that you just never know what you will need, I try to get over there at least every couple of weeks but have been pretty busy since the holidays (and  recent big trip) so I neglected to do due diligence until yesterday.  I discovered that the parking lot was unusually busy and I had to hunt for a shopping cart.  Because of their super low costs, you are basically on your own including hauling down bolts of fabric and getting them to the registers.  I wouldn't be surprised if injuries have occurred.  
Once inside, I noticed long lines at the registers and then noticed that all trims and fabrics were $2.00 per yard.  This really started my heart racing although their usual price of $3.99 is not bad and has resulted in more buying sprees than I want to acknowledge.
I found that the sale had been going on for two whole weeks and noticed that the racks were pretty low - I was getting depressed.  Once I started looking, however, I did find some really nice fabrics - four of which I have already dropped off at the upholsterers for pieces waiting to be redone.  
I got several fabrics that fit nicely into the color scheme I discussed this week from Benjamin Moore with blue "wythe" as its star (a seafoamy blue).  Several of my pieces fit into the color scheme suggested by the paint company.

In addition, I bought several creams (both duck cloth and a weather-friendly cream and pale gold tweed).
It is not too late for locals to visit the shop and particularly if you need trims - their trim collection is outstanding including very high end pieces.  Good hunting!  
I will try not to go back until this sale has passed - my fabric room is getting pretty crowded.
