"Fabric lovers' heaven" Specialty Shops Tip by CCW

Specialty Shops, San Francisco: 26 reviews and 35 photos

This tiny shop has the best selection of decorator and upholstery fabrics I've ever seen, plus natural-fiber material suitable for clothing. It's NOT cheap, and many of their fabrics require knowledgable handling -- this is not where you go to pick up a couple of yards of material for your kid's Halloween costume. But for many years (and they've been there 25 years or more) I've been purchasing half-yards for throw pillows and chair cushions, and I've always been pleased with the results.
