While traveling in North Carolina HLS & I found a unique shop for vintage patterns, fabric remnants and industrial recyclable scraps of all kinds, called the Scrap Exchange. It's a nonprofit. The store is in a large warehouse on the corner with limited parking. Didn't investigate the restrooms, but I'm guessing that they would be available if I'd asked. The staff is very helpful and courteous.
The main reason why the place stays busy are the prices. There is very little merchandise over $3.00. The prices are way below clearance and if you're a hunter this place is for you. Most of the fabric that they have are remnant pieces, but there is a very small section of fabric on bolts. I was able to find invisible zippers, a couple cute vintage patterns and a couture pant pattern that I have yet to review. They also have lots of home dec samples, bound and loose, mostly in 12-14in squares. This is a store for creative crafters too!
Some other items that I snatched were leather samples and lace. One of my favorite items purchased is this romper pattern! McCall's 7437 circia 1981! Two of these ladies look like they are going to the space center. And the other one is off to roller rink! Love that! Rompers have been on the runways all season, and I hope to get with the program. What are your thoughts? Can I keep it chic?
