Hi everyone!

I'm a Canadian from the Toronto area, and we're thinking of crossing the border into New York state for the day for some cross-border shopping!  I think we're going to be crossing into Niagara Falls, NY / Buffalo area...  I was wondering if anyone could recommend any stores to stop at while I'm in the states!  I'm primarily interested in wool and fabric, but any craft supply stores would be wonderful!

If anyone else has done this and has any tips to pass along, that would be great!  Also, if you know of any particularly good outlet stores / stores just for shopping at, all recommendations are appreciated!  Thanks!

This maybe something on your schedule,
if you come later in the year...(November)
***I have never been to it, but it sounds
wonderful, and could be in that neck of the woods.
I believe it's changed locations over the years
but the turn out has increased.***

~~~>There is a email address on the bottom to contact,
and when all else fails, this venue sounds like there's someone
there that could also lead you to some crafting/shopping places.

Hi there,
            It seems that we go over to the Buffalo area about once a month. We really did not like Jo Ann's at all. Their discount policy is ridiculous and as a result, we refuse to shop there anymore. Michael's has good sales even without the coupons. Our favourite is A.C. Moore which is near Boulevard Mall. Haven't found any other places unfortunately. Wal Mart has cheap cheap cheap fabric.
