San Francisco Fabric Shops
After Britex, head to one of four outposts of a local bargain fabric store, Discount Fabrics. The downtown location of this “wholesale to the public” operation is located near the train station on Fourth Street in a utilitarian setting, with cement floors and warehouse shelving. And it has the bargains to match. There are plenty of 99-cent and $1.09- per-yard fabrics, and surprises, such as denim from Levi Strauss and recycled fleece.
