Last Wednesday we trotted into London and after concluding our business, we decided our adventures should take us to a fabric shop that I had read about. So I gave hubby the address and he in a matter of seconds tells me which tubes to catch, no pondering over maps for him. In fact I think I could tell him to take me absolutely anywhere in London and he would, if only to prove to himself that he can do it without opening up a map. I feel his mind is full of circuits and maps are pretty much like circuits so he probably looked at a map twenty years ago and its still crystal clear to him.
Our adventures this time took us to Shaukat & Company who couldn't have been nicer to us.
We wondered and we pondered and I made little gasps in awe and delight.
It is an amazing shop, it is huge, on two levels and if you can't quite make it they have a comprehensive web site to ponder and wonder and gasp.
I've never seen many of the Liberty fabrics, the cord and the twill in particular, so I bought myself a skirts worth of Liberty Needlecord for the autumn, and did I mention the prices, so much cheaper than Liberty's.
Silk. - so pretty.
Shirting, 100% cotton.
Wool and tweeds for suits.
And then we have the Liberty fabric.
and more and more and
It goes on and on, I've only photographed about a quarter of the shop.
Its definitely worth a shopping trip.
