St. Theresa Textile Trove

Over my lunch break today, I ventured out to Downtown Cincinnati! I came across the most unique and slightly eccentric (perfect for me) place I have ever seen, St. Theresa Treasure Trove.

It is located in the Pendleton Art Building on Pendleton Street in Downtown Cincinnati. Let me just tell you it is like walking through bead and textile heaven! The walls were lined with rows and rows of fabric and there were so many unique beads I couldn’t hardly stay calm! The sweetest most knowledgeable gal was working while I was visiting and she made me feel right at home. Honey, was her name, beading was her game. She even offered me to stop back in for free beading and sewing demonstrations.

I was on the hunt for authentic African wax fabric (take make some Spring/Summer skirts- see my Spring fashion post) and that is exactly what I found. Stacks and stacks of beautiful vibrant colored fabrics so reasonably priced!!!

Here are some photos from my trip!

I love discovering new and exciting places in my own city!
