    UPDATE: Last night we went to pick up a free box springs I found on Craigslist. The durango felt funny but we thought it was the box springs on the top. Somewhere along the way we picked up a nail :( Have to spend the day today getting it fixed and Dallas is too far to go on a spare. The kids were disappointed and I am too but life just works out that way. We'll go in a couple weeks. I really want to check out those other places on Perth St. too. I guess we could have picked the nail up anywhere and its actually good fortune to find out about it in your own driveway instead of the middle of Oklahoma on the highway.

    on Harry Hines Blvd. Does anyone know if it's still there? I'm really really hoping it is. You go down 35 like you are going to downtown, but get off at the exit to go to the big movie theatre and restaurant row. Turn left, go under the highway heading east to Harry Hines, then turn right. The warehouse was/is? a few blocks after you turn right onto HHB. If it is, I'll post what the street names are when I get back. I just can't remember their names at the moment.



    coffee is kicking in! found it!

    Golden D'Or Fabric Outlet
    10795 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas, TX
    (214) 351-2339

    This was my all-time favorite hangout when I lived in Dallas, more fabric of all kinds than you can ever imagine! I will sleep in the Durango if I have to:) I'd rather spend 100.00 on fabric than a hotel room lol.

    the list:
    quilting fabric
    black jacquard for bedroom drapes
    more quilting fabric
    baby fabric
    even more quilting fabric
    and some more of whatever I find!

    You sound so excited! :D

    Are you going to Dallas especially to go to the fabric shop, or is it a happy aside to your main reason for going to Dallas?

    Oh please do let us know what you find. I lived in the Dallas area for many years and never heard of this place. Be careful on Harry Hines.....take someone with you and don't go in the evening. :shock:

    that's for sure:) although in the years past when I went there during the day, there was never any unsavory characters hanging around. Night time is an entirely different story I'm sure. Nope, don't go down to that area after dark. I remember one year, I think it was 1998 or so, I was doing the shop hop and had to go to Ft. Worth. Well, I am known for getting lost, and I did a bang up job that day. I took a wrong exit and ended up in a part of FW that you don't go to even during the day. Scared me to death and I got myself back on that highway lickety split.

    Golden D'Or is still there, and has improved over the years! Did you know there are also several more on Perth Street just north of there? It runs west off Harry Hines. ABC has been one of my favorites; haven't been there in a while, though.

    The Fabric places are still there. They are on Perth(a cul de sac)/Harry Hines just south of Walnut Hill. Golden D'or is south of Perth and faces Harry Hines. The ones on Perth carry a lot of home dec fabric with your cottons mixed in. If you can find what you want, there is one place where you can by the fabric by the bolt for about $1.75 a yard. Golden D'or has just about anything you could want, starting with precut remnants (be sure to check for flaws) at the front for $.99 a yd but you have to buy all..usually less than 4 yds. Most cottons on the bolt are $2.99 yd or less. Don't miss the notions room at the front.... Ric Rac is $.25 a yd. Most all take credit cards.
