Haha!  No, I haven't been there-  I don't think I live anywhere near Plainville (I'm in Deep River!).

This is a drive for you, but I live in Newtown, and we have this place, Chints 'N Prints.    It's an independent fabric and sewing store, and while its old and dingy, I've found some awesome stuff there.

Hey AlexandraK We're practically neighbors!  I live in Southbury, but just moved from Newtown over the summer.  There's a crafty group that meets alternately in Newtown and Bethel - PM me if you want more info or to chat about life in Newtown!

You should go to Trash American Style in Danbury. I just bought the best buddha beads, and some bone carved skulls. Plus Malcom ( the most awesome owner) told me that his associate was at Americas largest beading convention, buying more for the store. Its not a bead store specifically, but it is the best store ever. My fiance and I take the hour drive once a month.

P.S. the Newtown teen center also rocks. I went to the best Halloween show thier.

Where in Danbury is Trash American Style?  I think I saw a newspaper article when they first opened, but don't recall where they are.

These are the beads I got at Trash. I'm planning on making Frida Kahlo inspired earrings with the hands (Picasso have her a gift of hand shaped earrings).
And by the way, the picture behind my hand is a Tammy Faye Baker album that I also purchased at Trash.

There's a small bead shop called the Beadoir in West Hartford Center. Its kind of expensive though.
