On the recommendation of a student I visited Angel Textiles at 846 Maple, Los Angeles. It is a small narrow store with fabric literally stacked from the floor to the ceiling! It is so densely packed that it really prohibits seeing the fabrics. The store stocks a lot of lace and leather but, it is very difficult to browse.
I didn't see any prices attached or posted and when I inquired the answer was $2 a yard and some fabrics were $5 a yard.
So even though the price may be tempting, the inability to easily access the fabrics was a turn off for me :(
