A Notion For Sabina

A little notions store in Buenos Aires

My friend Sabina is very crafty, and an excellent costume maker. Every year it gets harder and harder to find what our mothers called "notions," the little sewing things you need, like thread, a button, or a piece of elastic. Small stores have given over to big box stores, and even though places like Wal Mart and Hancock Fabrics have sewing things and fabrics and a craft department, it's not like a little store dedicated to small things. Sometimes it's a real pain to have to enter a huge experience when you want just one small thing.
For years Sabina, who is also an excellent retail professional, has wanted to open her own notions store. So this is for you Sabina, in hopes that it will inspire your dreams to fruition.
