If you look at you average high street, the good old fashioned haberdashery has gone.
They have been replaced by the craft shop or vanished all together.
If there is a market you could be lucky to has a haberdashery stall.
What is all the fuss you ask, I can still get what I need from the craft shops or on the internet?
The fuss is simple, if you have ever rummaged through a store that has a huge variety of goods, like a haberdashery or army and navy store or antquie shop, you will know the thrill you get when you find something you can’t live with out. You didn’t go to the shop for it but, if the price is right, you will be leaving with it. You will add the item to your collection of ‘one day I might need that’, and the buzz of finding that something new will last a couple of days. Then there is the afternoons you will send looking at this collection and finally the day that the item became useful.
A haberdashery is not a shop or store it is an experience that lasts for months and sometimes years.
