a sassy saturday with steph.

my girlfriend stephanie and i spent saturday afternoon lunching & craft shopping. she needed fabric for her daughter’s upcoming 2nd birthday party so we headed to SAS (i call it “sass” but it’s technically s-a-s fabrics) to find supplies to bring the disney themed party to life. i talk about SAS all the time, because i really do love it. most people find it pretty gross and overwhelming, but it always gets my creative juices flowing and i usually walk away inspired (and with a bag full of stuff I may or may not ever use). but when you’re paying $.15/yard for things… come on, you can splurge. here’s a peek inside the wholesale warehouse that sells ribbon, fabric… you name it – by the pound.
{need ribbon, sequins or leather?}
{bins and bins or ribbon}
{buckets and buckets of buttons. $.60 for a dozen? sure.}
{steph with her minnie mouse fabric (for tablecloths) in hand}
{buckets and bins filled with all kinds of embellishments & supplies}
{thousands of yards of every type of fabric you can imagine}
{lace anyone? heaven.}
{more ribbon, elastic & trims}
{not glamorous, but a goldmine of cheap crafting supplies}

after braving the warehouse and finding the perfect supplies, we treated ourselves to an open-aired lunch at St. Francis for wine and girl talk.

    I call it “sass” too. :) Which one do you go to? I have one literally 1.5 miles from my house.
