Fabric + Vintage Treasures

I recently discovered a wonderful newish shop in not far from where I live. It's full of all kinds of fun treasures from fabric to vintage glassware, buttons, etc. Pretty much right up my ally, eh? So much pretty, all in one place. I love pictures of inspiring spaces, so I thought I'd snap a few to share here.
The shop is called Harmony and is located in an beautifully preserved, 130 yr-old home in downtown Provo, Utah.
There is a gorgeous and well-currated collection of fabric. Not huge selection, but it's well chosen with unique prints and includes voiles, corduroys, and oil-cloth.
They also carry a beautiful selection of quality yarn.
Vintage Trims
 More vintage goodies
 A drawer full of Washi Tape.
And a bench for a patient little kid. Don't let him fool you. This cooperation was purchased at a price: the promise of a donut at the Provo Bakery around the corner. I am not above bribes. (Plus, I'm always up for a good excuse for one myself.) It's hard to get any better than pretty fabric shops followed by fresh donuts.

  3. I remember many bribes to my three boys if they'd be good in a fabric store. Now they tell me that they often started fights so I'd give up and leave. Of course they also remind me that I would tell them 15-20 minutes and it would be an hour. Thanks for sharing. It looks like a wonderful store to lose lots of time in.

    1. My husband still as a phobia of JoAnn Fabrics because of the time he spent there as a child. I'm sure I've passed that phobia on to my own sons. ;)

  5. Ha! I knew when I saw that first picture that you were at Harmony. I made a quick drive-by on my way from the airport to Manti on my first day of vacation -- I loved it. You're so lucky it's close to home. And how I wish I'd read your post before I left -- I could have used some doughnuts on the drive! ;-D

  6. What a lovely shop! And yes, I know all about bribing little boys to behave in fabric shops. I usually promise a trip through the Starbucks drive-through afterwards to pick up chocolate brownies or cake pops for the kids and a latte for Mommy. :-)

  9. Looks gorgeous!

    And my philosophy is, It's not a bribe if you offer it before they misbehave! Then it's a reward :D

  19. I discovered this shop in April when we were in Provo for my youngest daughter's graduation from BYU. I was so smitten. It makes me sad that we live so far away in Omaha, NE.
