In Cotton



Originally uploaded by sweetmondaygirl.

I'm craving a trip to the fabric district downtown. Wanting to be surrounded by the colors and the sounds and the questionable smells. By the shop owners who don't speak English and are at once nonchalant and proud of what they've got to sell. I want to run my hands across the silks and the fake silks, the cottons, the blends, the tulle, even the polyesters, and be surprised by what catches my eye.

That is, by far, one of the coolest old signs I've seen.

Yeah, I love this sign. Sadly it probably won't be there too much longer since the store closed recently. But maybe whatever moves in its place will see the value of the sign and keep it there.

That sign is so cool! We don't get anything like that over here! Thanks for your words of support...I really appreciated them.
