Downtown stuff

October 31st, 2010

Today we walked around downtown and checked out the new fabric store where Fabric Place used to be.
It was nice to see it being occupied and although they don’t use as much space as the old store, there are still plenty of fabrics, notions, books and other sewing supplies.

Their website is up and running if you want check it out.
We also saw that the old Fabric Place workshops on Concord St. (first couple of shops north of the train tracks) are now occupied. One is a place called Aaron’s, which is an appliance rental type place (picture didn’t come out) and the space next to it is called Partners Balloon Design.

I peeked in the window and saw they have a nice space with lots of balloons and party displays

Also we noticed that the Russian store Skaska is now a beer/liquor/convenience store:

We also saw a note on Rent-A-Center’s door:

At first I thought it must be for Halloween but then thought maybe they have that sign up year-round.
Anyway, Happy Halloween!
