As you can see this is the front of the store I asked permission from the shop owner helen, I have been a customer for many years so she said yes as long as I don't take a photo of her. ( lol I just realized that you can actually see my reflection in the shop window double lol)
These fabrics on the left of the store have linens and some quilt weight cotton ,I sometimes get lucky and find some goodies.
These are the fabrics all lined up none of these are cotton I look at them sometimes and I wished some of them were the colors are so pretty ,but they are fancy fabrics for dresses or more special occasion attire.
I just love these play full teddy bears.
I got cute ice cream cone fabric.
One day I found this beauty it was on a bolt with 3 other fabrics wrapped over it ,and I bought all of it of course ,there was only about 1 1/2 meter or so , I was really impressed by it.
A larger view of the fabric isn't it artsy?
NOW we go further up the street and we arrive at the fathers store it looks like a rummage store I like to go there more often his prices are better, all of the fabrics I have shown you I purchased from here ,when you arrive it's not street level you go down some steps.
And there he is PANAGIOTIS he lets me rummage around and when I find something I like he doesn't even get up I grab the meter stick of course after we haggle over the price he says a price and I gasp and then he lowers and we are both happy. I measure and cut myself , I don't even pay if I don't have cash ,I just write it in his little black book , and that's about it for fabric buying in Marousi there are some fabric stores downtown Athens ,but they don't carry anything more than what I get here , plus I don't have the time to go downtown. I have purchased from the Internet in the past ,but for now I have enough so I thank you all for stopping by and I hope you liked my little tour see you again soon!!.
