ATOMIC BARKCLOTH STORES AND SITES!

HERE ARE SOME SOURCES FOR ALL YOUR ATOMIC FABRIC NEEDS. VINTAGE IS GOOD,
BUT THERE'S NO GUARANTEE AS TO HOW LONG THEY WILL ACTUALLY LAST OR TAKE WASHES TO CLEAN THEM. I TEND TO LEAN TO AS MANY OF THE REPRODUCTIONS AS I CAN TO INSURE A GOOD STRONG BARKCLOTH TO LAST FOR MANY YEARS. ONE OF THE BEST PLACES I FIND ATOMIC CLOTH IS ON EBAY. THERE ARE DIFFERENT FABRICS THERE AT DIFFERENT TIMES. OTHER THAN EBAY I HAVE USED THESE OTHER SITES AS A RESOURCE. ENJOY!

Too bad most of the repros are now gone, too. I don't get why they'd quit making something that people still want!
I'm an avid barkcloth buyer as well as occasional seller on ebay. Where else would I find the fabulous fabrics I use to make my retro handbags?!

By the way, MelinaMade fabrics are now found on this website: melinamadefabrics.com

Someone swooped down and snagged her domain name before she could renew it!

My store: atomiclivin.com :)
