Thank You

Hello everyone,
Just wanted to thank you for all who came to say hi and goodbye during the final sale and who supported Peapod over the years. I had good days and bad days during those years. But, what made me keep going?  My love for beautiful fabric and the pride of serving beautiful San Francisco, a special place where small businesses can thrive.  And not to mention my loyal patrons.  I am proud to say that Peapod was more than a fabric store.  It was a place where neighbors could stop by to chat while they were on the way to the grocery store. It was the place where dog lovers could stop by to say hi to the famous shop dogs.  It was a place where kids (and adults) could come in and get inspired to be creative.  I knew many of you by your first name.  We exchanged holiday gifts.  We had a crafty night when we ate, drank, talked, laughed, and made things together.  I am sad to close, but I closed its door knowing that Peapod was definitely a vital part of the community and well-loved.  So thank you all again for your love and support!!!

  4. I'm from Michigan, but have managed to visit your store 3 times in the past 8 years - each time admiring all your lovely fabric and wishing I had a store like yours closer to my home. Thank you for providing me with inspiration and for taking the time to talk with me. I loved your store and I wish you well in your future endeavors.
