Interesting. I don't think I've been over there very much. You'll have to go scout it out and report back to the rest of us.  Wink

I'm in Topeka, and I agree that most places (Lawrence being an exception...Lawrenc e is my equivalent to heaven.) do not have ANYTHING.  Maybe it's because I'm younger (16) and don't hear about it?  I don't know, but I do have to say on the Emporia note- my aunt lives there, and used to have a fabric shop (Fabric Corner) there, but she had to compete with Wal Mart so much that it wasn't worth it, and moved to Topeka (the store, not her)  And my cousin goes to ESU.  He's a freshman and in a lot of plays.

I'm so sorry to hear about your aunt's shop! that happens way too often when the evil empire takes over.

I bet I know your cousin, if only by proxy. my next door neighbor is in drama, but she works back stage.

Hmm maybe, his name's Pat and he has bright red hair and dimples??? Anyway, my aunt just moved her shop here, so I'm working there now, and been doing better, although it seems like everyone just wants $2 a yard fabric even if it's crap, rather than $8 a yard fabric that is good quality.

I am in Wichita Smiley

Me too!  Does anyone know a good place here in Wichita to get vintage clothes or material that won't break my piggy bank?

actually, there is a yellow brick road in kansas...i live about 30 minutes away from it!! it's in sedan, a tiny town in southeast kansas.  i know another good place in kc, it's called uptown monkey pants, they closed for a while, but i think they opened back up. also, there's a place called Boomerangs in downtown KC.  hope that helps all of your northerners a bit!

I live in Wellington about 35 miles south if Wichita. I work at a thrift store called Mission Thrift. I find TONS of fab things to make my crafts from. The place is small but ever so much fun. We are only open 9-11 M-S. There is also a fun tiny thrift store run by a local church that has fun and very retro stuff dirt cheap. They are open M-F 1-4. email me if you want addresses. Wellington is kind of out of the way but I have a blast working at the thrift store and even more of a blast finding good junk to re-make into even better junk...
Happy crafting.
