One of my earliest memories growing up was my mother dragging the three of us to Mary Jo’s Cloth Store in Gastonia, NC. Whenever I have the chance to go back east I try to visit and do a little shopping. Many of the same women still work there from when I was little! The last time I went was November 2009 and I even got to talk with Mary Jo herself for a few minutes as she stacked fabric. (read her story here) I went with my sister when we were visiting a few weeks ago…..I always take my camera!
It’s a huge place (32,000 square feet to be exact)….
