Hart's Fabric is a cool store in Santa Cruz. If you've ever been to Santa Cruz, you'll know that everyone is friendly, low stress and how can I say this, just cool in that save the earth kind way. (Just didn't want to say GREEN) I think it's getting way too trendy and almost sad how people use it now. Does nobody remember the late 60's and early 70's when we were all about the anti-pollution and saving the trees? I think it continued till the 80's, then I don't really know what happen. SUV's and jumbo everything? Anyways, loving these fabric and they are sort of modern with a little "Ching Chong the Chinaman kind of way" as my white honky friends would say : ) ( I never said I was always PC.)

My neighbor up in Sandisfield has a small home store called LT Home, 3 New Hartford Rd, Sandisfield MA, 01255 phone (413)258-0244. I get a lot of my fun accessories there. The owner Liana sells linens, towels and rugs plus other accessories like soaps and candles. The pictures above are new lamps and bowls,etc from a company called ROOST that she has access to and can sell. Mention my blog and she may give you a discount! Honest! She is a lovely woman and she is also working hard on her home business and also spending 80% of her time on a not-for-profit organization called CATA, Community Access To the Arts, (art done by the disable). It's a great organization. Here are some of the items she has available in her store.

This is the place across the street from The Shop in Lewes called "Pastorale Antiques". In this place there are 2 other antique stores but they are all under the same name. It's in this place I met a incredibly talented lady who inspired me to loving antique mirrors. Her name is Helen Van Dkye and she is now moving her studio to Brighton. I will have a separate posting on her. Pastorale Antiques is located at 15 Malling Street Lewes. 011 44 1 273 473 259 firstname.lastname@example.org. I really love the charming pair of chairs don't you?

This Chemistry set bowls are beautiful and thin and in a strange way looks modern.
I really wanted this vintage fabric that was framed but I opted for yards of fabric for my upholstery project.
So I made a huge mistake in naming the owners of the store in Lewes. I got the names all flipped around so here is the owners name (confirmed by them) Liz and husband Kevin. Liz seems to know all the prices and she is very helpful. So here are some pictures of more goodies at her store. Also her number I put down was also incorrect. (I guess I put the UK version of a 800 number and that would not go through.) International number: 00.44.1.273.486.769.
