Betsy and Emily's goal for their store is not only to showcase the handmade, but to bring artistic and handcrafted fulfillment to folks in a fast-paced technology driven world. (Kinda sounds like me, doesn't it?) Stepping into bon bon is like slowing the world for me. The store invites browsing, fondling of fabric, perusing books and is always an inspirational experience. If you're anywhere near Kansas City, it's a must stop. I do my Christmas shopping at bon bon. It's never too early to start, you know!
Bonbon is also unique in that you will never see these gals carry an entire fabric line. They only buy what they love (fabric buying is a deeply personal experience for them!) and they work with their customers to put together one of a kind fabric combinations. I love a place where I can find what no one else seems to have. It's always a treat to see what Betsy and Emily have on the shelf.
And Liberty....ohh the Liberty. If you've never seen or touched Liberty of London fabrics, it's an experience you need to have. I buy Liberty for very special projects. It's a joy to work with and simply gorgeous. I made scarves for some very special friends with Liberty this Christmas.
Betsy and Emily want all their customers to have the bonbon experience. They strive to do that both in person and online. Check out bonbon. It's not your average fabric store. They've got free patterns too. Betsy and Emily are offering a coupon for my readers, 10% off online with the promo code tallgrassprairie.
Put bon bon on your list of places to visit when you come to quilt market in the spring of 2012. It's going to be in Kansas City, you know! We have the welcome mat out for you!!
