Fabric Shopping Haul!

It’s been months since I took my trip to Los Angeles, CA for my friend, Mimi’s fashion and sewing conference. I did some serious shopping in the fashion district and wish I would have had an extra week just to shop! There are sooooo many stores that it’s impossible to see them in all in only a couple of days. I’ve been posting pictures of the secret luggage since I returned from my trip and everyone has been begging for me to finally open it! 

I had a ton of deadlines to meet this summer so I held off opening it because I didn’t want to get distracted with all the goodies I knew I had in there!

Well, today is the day! I have created a fabric shopping haul video for you. The deals I got were ridiculous! After my first day of shopping I remember my husband calling and asking if I’d gone shopping yet. HA! When I told him I did, he laughed! He says, “I just checked the bank account expecting you to have done some damage but you barely made a dent.” He then insisted I shop some more the next day as well. So, of course, I complied. No one has to tell me twice to buy more fabric!

My friend Rejina and I returned to the fashion district the next day and bought this purple suitcase before we hit the shops. I paid $15 for it at one of the luggage shops on the streets of Downtown LA! And because I was flying Southwest Airlines I could check it for my return trip without paying extra baggage fees. Score!


I thought I was going to spend $300-$500 buying fabric and notions and instead I didn’t even spend $100. Insane!  To learn which fabric stores were my favorite be sure to watch the video. They have amazing deals! If you don’t believe me… watch the video and listen to what I paid for each item. You will be shocked… and you may start booking your own trip to the LA fashion district too!
