|Waiting for the bus to take us to The Brooklyn General Store|
|They sure pack a lot into this space.|
|Great selection of books bloggers love.|
The staff was incredibly nice and never let on that the store had closed fifteen minutes before I left, but the class was still going on in the back. What a contrast to the night I decided to stop shopping at JoAnn Fabrics (but that is a story for another day.)
I controlled myself this time because I knew I would be back in June. They have a wonderful selection of Liberty of London fabrics including fabric intended for bathing suits on the rolls hanging from the wall. How fun would that be in a Bombshell bathing suit!
One of the dress forms in the windows sported the Jasmine blouse and Ginger skirt by Colette. The other one looked like the Ceylon dress. I may have to make that skirt.

How funny, I just now realized that there was a huge picture of what I assume is an alpaca hanging on the wall where I spent so much time looking at notions! I have an irrational fear of llamas and alpacas after being chased by a few as a child. If my daughter is reading this, she is cracking up.
Can't wait to shop here again.
Next stop -- The Garment District!
