Superbuzy has a real life store!

Tuesday morning I woke up and decided I should start the new year off right and buy some new fabric. After my little monster was down for a nap I curled up with my computer and went to my favorite online shop for finding awesomely cute Japanese prints I spent a good amount of time looking at every page making sure I got a good look at all my options and quickly had a cart full of awesomeness. I knew that they were local and I could pick up my order instead of paying for shipping so before checking out I went to their contact page to get their address. With great joy I found that they had recently opened up a brick and mortar shop just a 5 minute drive from house.

So I abandoned my virtual shopping cart and made it my goal to do some real life (because everything on the internet is pretend right?) shopping asap.

On Saturday I was finally able to venture out alone and witness the greatness that is Superbuzzy. I walked in and it was like my own personal heaven. It was roomy and bright with racks of the cutest fabric one could imagine and everyone in there was super friendly. When I got home I realized I should have taken some pictures but I was so distracted by the fabric that shopping was the only thing I could think of.

I browsed through the rows of fabric several times and then carefully pulled out my favorites. I tried not to over do it just so I had a reason to come back in the near future. I still bought too much but it's hard to control myself when fabric is involved.
Here are some pictures of what I got.
This one is my favorite. 
Oh man. I can't wait to start sewing with these. 

And they don't just have fabric. They have patterns and needle felting kits to make the cutest little animals, Japanese craft books and the cutest stationary items. I picked up a super cute birthday gift for my niece that just turned 12. 

If you are in the Ventura area or visiting soon you should definitely check out Superbuzzy. It's a beautiful welcoming place and I can't wait to go back. If you aren't in the area you should check out there online shop which is also awesome. 

Now I am off to get my sewing room straightened up so I can do some sewing with  my new fabric.

Heck yeah! I was driving down Main the other day and saw the shop with a big cartoon bee painted onthe side, I didn't have time to stop but I was really wondering what the heck was in there. I'm so glad you posted this! The mystery is solved. I will have to venture in there in the next week. I love new crafty stores!
