What You'll Get
Studies show that silkworms are more cheerful when serenaded with music while they work, and they're twice as likely to spin keyboard neckties. Fill rooms with silk-spun treasures with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of fabric, pillows, and gifts at Silk Trading Co., located on La Brea Avenue.
Silk Trading Co.'s 9,000-square-foot showroom bustles with shining bolts of silk fabric and imported décor items. Damsels in wardrobe distress can fashion Gabriella sheer silk into a cape that will complement Day-Glo pantsuits ($40/yard), and 18"x18" Como silk pillows can cushion tired tushes during Dallas marathons ($44 each). Or use today's Groupon to ship a prison pen pal enough Emerson silk fabric to sew a prison uniform with more colorful stripes ($55/yard), which can be eventually traded for cigarettes or much-coveted canned tuna. Shoppers can also load up with a bucketful of art and design books to add ballast to shopping bags should they have to ford any turbulent rivers on the way back to the car ($18.95+ each).
