Huge Thank You to Tanya Maile, who was at Britex last week and commented below.
Seems there are negotiations going on. This article, dated 5 days ago, gives more specifics.
Perhaps we really don’t know what’s actually happening, and will just need to watch the news… and the Britex web site. . . .
My apologies for not searching multiple google pages for more recent articles.
Again, a huge Thank You to Lizzie of The Vintage Traveler for alerting us to the situation.
Here’s an additional article I located. Between the 2 there are great photos of the store.
I’ve been to Britex a few times, whilst living in the Bay Area, and was always overwhelmed. But I never failed to lust after what I couldn’t afford (Liberty cottons and English wools) and found exactly what I needed.
If you’ve got an independent fabric store in your area of the U.S., puh-lease let them know how much you appreciate their existence.
Sales have started online at Britex.
