The Material Girls in Dearborn, Michigan has nearly doubled in size from 1300 sq. ft. to 2500 sq. ft. increasing their display and classroom space. With a shop hop looming, Barb Fricano, owner of The Material Girls, had a door put in between two units, and a fresh coat of paint put on the walls of the adjoining unit in just two weeks.
The space was ready for the OH-MI Shop Hop March 20 – 22.
“We were limited to a classroom of 4.” said Fricano. “Now we can seat 12 comfortably.”
Fricano started as an online shop in 2004 and opened her bricks and mortar shop in 2007. The Material Girls specializes in ethnic fabrics with Asian, Australian, African and batiks as her best sellers. Fricano ships fabric to Australia, Europe, Canada, Brazil, Norway, Sweden, Israel, and to the Czech Republic.
The Material Girls will celebrate their new expansion with a Grand Re-Opening April 22 – 26. Watch for a week’s worth of special deals!
