Fabric Shopping On Holiday

Inspiring fabrics

I am sure I am not the only one who does this:  Buying fabric while on vacation.  My luggage was stuffed on the way home.  This time I thought I'd share one of my favorite spots to indulge this desire.  In my opinion, there is no better style of print than the Hawaiian style.  I can't get enough of it.  I am not from Hawaii, either.  Love it- love it -love it.  Love it when it's just yardage, love it when it's a shirt, love it vintage, love it as a dress, love it on any age or size of man and especially on a good hula dancer.

If you are interested and find yourself in Hawaii, my recommendation is to seek out a good fabric store, such as Fabric Mart.  Inexpensive fabric is just a bonus it's the selection that is so fun.  They are also online but not going into the shop is like  reading a description of a "Loco Moco" and not ever eating a plate of it.  (FYI: Loco Moco  ).  Make a day of Hawaiian comfort fabric and Hawaiian comfort food.  Fabric Mart in Maui is in Kahului.  Loco Moco is everywhere.

Had to throw this in, on the way back from fabric shopping this was the car next to us....."Howzit brah?"
