Shopping Trip: Fabricville

FabricvilleWhat do you think about when preparing to visit a new city? Many of us leave home with a list of fabric store addresses that we found on the web. On a trip to Montreal I visited Fabricville. Located downtown in the shopping area, I was pleasantly surprised to find a large, well-stocked, and very busy, store.

Graphic prints lined the shelves at Fabricville and ready-to-wear store windows were showing printed tops trimmed with lots gold or silver cords and braids. The European fashion influence was very apparent. Naturally there were lots of knitted woolen garments.

Can you guess what almost everyone wears? Boots. Everyone, young and old, wears boots to keep warm. I wore my boots everywhere.

Use the internet the next time you are planning a trip. And send us your shopping experiences.
