If you have any fabric design in mind and can't seem to find it - it is here. Many shops to go into and browse. The cost is not inexpensive but the variety of options is worth the extra cost.

Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
