This store is so perfectly named. Findings is just that. What a find!
Owner Nancy King-Monk has scoured many a flea market, and tapped into the talents of many a designer. She was so pleasant and friendly to visit with.
I was IN LOVE just walking through the door.
First my eye landed on beautiful Kaffe fabrics. Her selections of fabrics were limited but every thing she carries is so beautiful.
And then there were shelves and shelves of amazing ribbons and trims. I wanted them all.
When I was a little girl my mother would take me to Sausalito to shop and we always visited a store that was lined with every kind of imaginable trim. I didn't want a toy or ice cream. I spent my few pennies on trims.
And the vintage buttons took my breath away.
I could live at this store.
Look at the amazing hand work on these jackets.
I knew I had to purchase at least a little bit of braids or trim, but where to start?
I limited myself to just a small cut of these three.
And some French braid "birds".
And then I purchased this crocheted pin by Betty Withrow. I have enjoyed seeing every one's crocheted granny squares on the blogs and since I don't have the time to join you, this will be my little version.
Findings is located on San Carlos between Ocean and 7th, P.O. Box 6638, Carmel, CA 93921 (831) 624-3700
