Thank You Mood!

I got to visit Mood!

There are two Mood stores in the U.S., one is in New York and the other is in Los Angeles.

On our road trip to San Diego, my very sweet hubbie asked me if I wanted to stop by the store and check it out. It was amazing! Walking through the door, an iconic live doggie sat in a leather chair watching the action. I must say it was a little overwelming, but exciting.

Fabrics are stacked on rolls from floor to ceiling and organized by type. It was fun to feel and see so many fabrics. There were probably a dozen helpers who are there to pull any roll you want from the vast sea of material. I found myself gazing mostly at eye level out of habit and then mesmerized as I gazed up and down at the the variety of colors and patterns.

The prices are inconveniently tucked tightly within the roll, as if of little importance. By habit, I’m a bargain and sale shopper, so I found this a little off-putting. I did purchase three pieces at prices that are a little higher than I usually spring for at Beverly’s or Jo-Ann’s, but it was well worth it.

I’ll cherish the experience and most importantly that it was my hubbie’s idea.

Thank you, Mood! And thank you, Alex.

  1. Oh, what a lucky girl you are! I would love to go to Mood someday. I noticed you didn’t share what you purchased. Is it going to be a surprise post? I can’t wait to see what you make with it.
