As I had mentioned a couple of days ago, I was headed out to a local shop where I'd heard they started carrying some Merchant & Mills goodies! I'm talking about Maiwa which is located on Granville Island in Vancouver. This area attracts tons of tourists which also deters me from heading out there as I always found it stressful to fight the traffic, find parking etc. This time my husband offered to take me down there so I could just focus on shopping! ha. I guess he's a keeper.
One thing I forgot to do was to take photos! I was too focused on shopping, plus the little shop was a bit tight to navigate when busy. You can see a photo of the inside of the shop here. The table in front now has a display of sewing tools from Merchant & Mills, including patterns. Here's a photo of the fabrics.
Believe it or not, I didn't get any Merchant and Mills stuff. They didn't have the linens I was looking for so I will probably still buy them from the UK. It was exciting to see though!
I did end up buying some lovely organic cotton from India.
You can see more of these Indian cottons here and here. By the way, a lot of these prints were already gone when I visited this week.
I am sure I will be back at Maiwa a lot more now! If you have any questions, feel free to email me here. Have a lovely weekend!
