Purl warehouse

DSC04675

Jamie, Jane, Liz, Terri and I all took a little outing yesterday to the Purl Soho warehouse.  Their stores might be in NYC, but the warehouse is out here in sunny California.  We had to make a trek down to Orange County, but it was worth it!

So much great fabric all in one place!!

I managed to show incredible restraint and bought only one yard of some Cake Rock Beach dots.  But in the future, when the bank account is a little bit better off, I’ll be going back.  Everything they have on their site, only in person and with no shipping cost?? Yes please!

    Oh, wow. I had no idea…Definitely a dangerous (for the pocketbook) place to be…

    (and I always wondered where they kept all their inventory!)

    Look at all those Echino bolts!! Swoon!! I am unspeakably glad that that place is on the other side of the country. Seriously.

    Oh my goodness! You actually go to do it! That’s so awesome. I’m pretty sure I would not have been able to resist the giant Echino shelf.

    Wait, what!? You can go to the warehouse? And it’s in Orange County? I can count on one had the reasons I enjoy living in Orange County. This may just bump me up to needing to use a second hand.

    So cool! Can anyone go! I’ve never heard of this, but it looks so so yummy!

    I am indeed jealous because I have not been to either. However, I will console myself with the knowledge that I would come home laden with fabric and yarn and completely penniless. :-)

    Looks like a great day to me!

  15. Courtney February 18, 2010 at 6:26 pm #

    Yay! Glad you made it down and had a good time!

    SHUT UP I am so jealous!!! I would have saved my grocery money in order to buy goodies straight from the Purl warehouse :-) haha Who needs food when you can have yummy fabric instead? ok, maybe not….

    oh! Can you send me a note before you go next? I’m after Cake Rock Beach dots in blue and green. I’m happy to paypal you through the money first!

    Hurrah for another excuse to come back to California!

    the warehouse is in CA…how weird is that, but how fortunate for you…unfortunate for the wallet, though.

  20. Abi February 19, 2010 at 11:04 pm #

    Isn’t that a fun place? I love that you can just wander around and it’s so laid back. There is treasure on every shelf!

    That is so cool! Would you mind passing along the address to the warehouse? I’m not too far from Orange County and would love to take a trip there sometime. Thanks!!
