And its name is Zincks Outlet…..
So, I made it out to Austintown, Ohio by way of Pittsburgh. Do you see how nutty I am? I forgot what airport I was flying into. I thought I was going through Cleveland. Doh!
Even on a mini-break, I still can find fiber! On Sunday, the BFF, three kids, her fiance and I headed out to Amish country in Berlin, OH. I wasn’t paying much attention but I remember following some signs for Akron, Ohio — I think. There, I did indulge in two pieces of fabric (not the ones pictured below). There was lots to choose from. Some good in a lot of ‘meh’. There were wools from B. Black and Son’s of Los Angeles for $3 to $5 a yard. But, also all the fleece that Joann’s can’t sell seems to have landed here. Loads of stretch laces for 50 cents a yard and plenty of non stretch denim for $3. Most of the shirtings were poly blend. But, I think the great selection were remnants of upholstery — if you’re in to bag making. They were selling four yard pieces for $1.99 a yard.
I figured I was on vacation so the 2010 fabric fast doesn’t count. My mom says a true addict makes excuses to suit the circumstances. Perhaps. But, doesn’t everyone take more than one run at rehab before it sticks?
I also bought a lot of wine from Ohio(six bottles, all rieslings), two huge blocks of cheese and inexplicably– peanut butter and chocolate whoopie pies. The wine is getting shipped to me via UPS. I find this no liquids in your carryons thing to be a serious cramp in my wine drinking.
And, I saw my first covered bridge!! I am so renting Bridges of Madison County this weekend!
Finally, the highlight was going to the circus. Tallk about something I would never do on my own. But, the BFF has a 4, 8 and 14 year old.
Great mini-break, but I’m glad to be home. I think no more trips before PR Philly :)
