For all of you Northern Californians (and visitors from everywhere, too),
members of my quilting class introduced me to Adams Notions on Broadway in
Redwood City. The owner, an older woman, is trying to reduce her stock to
one store (there are currently two), so every Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, EVERYTHING is 50% off. She has things from the 60's to
contemporary prints, velvets, trims, brocades, quilting materials, you
The only thing is, she is older and it takes her awhile, but believe me,
it's worth it. She opens around 11.
