Urban Burp SF

Friday, March 25, 2011

I bought a groupon on a whim: $40 for $20 worth of vintage fabric at Urban Burp. I had never been so I hopped on Bart & braved the wind & rain.
This was the building across the street. Reminds me of Paris or something.
I found the shop hidden behind a salon, which I later learned was Urban Burp's husband's salon. He bought the space, and they agreed to create a partition splitting the space so walla! You have the best curated fabric store I've ever been to :)
They specialize in 20s-70s fabrics. They have a whole section for vintage cowboys! I did find some nostalgic prints like carebears & fabric my mom used for Christmas table runners when I was a kid. An hour later with a significantly lighter wallet (beautiful but pricey fabrics oh boy), I walked away with these gems:
Not sure what I'll do with them yet. Perhaps a special vintage fabric line or something. Who knows. I'm content just staring at them :)
