Fabric Warehouse’s family of cloth merchants have sold their woven wares for over half a century, amassing a stunning variety of materials within a 13,000-square-foot warehouse. The well-stocked textile temple houses more than 700,000 yards of cloth—enough to sew a windbreaker for the Ross Ice Shelf. Home hobbyists, upholsterers, and fashion designers alike create eye-catching ensembles, drapery, and furnishings with the warehouse’s menagerie of colorful patterns, interesting textures, and decorative trimmings.
Only at Fruit Fantasy could a swan have the tail feathers of a peacock, and only at Fruit Fantasy could those tail feathers actually be made of slices of orange, kiwi, strawberries, and grapes. The artistic designers arrange fruit bouquets and baskets for any occasion, which they craft from ripe eats such as watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, blackberries, and chocolate-dipped strawberries.
