Job Warehouse is a Melbourne institution. An amazing Aladin's cave overflowing with rolls and rolls of fabric - not to mention the piles of haberdashery, ribbons, fake flowers, collars, shirts and hats. It has been in the same location for 60 years and pretty much every crafter and stitcher has a story of being kicked out of there by the late Jacob Zeimer who couldn't stand a dilly dallying shopper who didn't know exactly what they wanted. Which was pretty hard considering how much there was to choose from!!
An article in The Age today by Carolyn Webb laments the demise of the large amazing fabric retailer. It will close the doors next Friday.
Fellow sister outlaw, Leanne, and I had a memorable trip to Job Warehouse last year when we bought enough trims to last us a lifetime. Mind you, I'm still tempted to go and shop there again. Just one last time. It's hard to believe it will be gone.
