DIY Shopping Guide

Do you want to know where to buy all the materials and stuff for your DIY projects? Here's a list with my best choices. 

Klein's (Trimmings)
From simple haberdashery to a large amount of trimmings, purse frames, milinery accessories, eyelets, leather trims, feathers... Almost everything to DIY. 
5 Noel Street London W1F 8GD

Barnett & Lawson (Trimmings)
You'll find a large variety of ribbons, trimmings, pearls, chains, buttons, feathers... The staff is very kind and they have very unique pieces. 
16-17 Little Portland Street, London, W1W 8NE 

Alma Leather 
Even though if you're not interested on buying, visiting Alma Leather is totally worth it. They have super special and weird leathers in a large variety of colors. They even have exotic leathers such as anaconda. I must warn you this is kind of expensive due to the high quality of their goods.
12-14 Greatorex Street - London E1 5NF

John Lewis (Haberdashery, tools)
A department store with a huge section of fabrics, haberdashery and crafts. It's not really unexpensive but I bet they will have what you're looking for.
Una especie de Corte Inglés con una planta de telas, mercería y manualidades que no te la acabas. No es demasiado barato, pero seguro que tienen lo que buscas. 
300 Oxford St. London. W1A 1 EX

Soho's little shops (Fabrics)
There are a few interesting fabric shops in Soho, specially around Berwick market. There are also some accessories and trimmings shops. Most of them also sell leather remnants. 
Broadwick Silks
9 Broadwick St, Westminster, London W1F 0DB
The Berwick Street Clothes Shop
14 Berwick Street

Asos (Clothes)
Without a doubt y favourite online store. If you are looking for very specific clothes to customize, this  will be your beloved website. If you don't know what your looking for, you'll love it too. Be careful if you just want while away the time watching clothes ¡Its really addictive!
Customer service is excellent, and shipping is free and so fast.

Romwe (Clothes)
There are some interesting pieces and the shipping is free. Also you have a discount voucher for your first order. On the other hand, you must be careful becouse some products don't look exactly like the picture and the quality is sometimes poor. Pay attention to the composition and run away from polyester and polyamide. 

Mi costumer relationship with amazon is a love-hate story. They always have what I want, but most of times can't ship it to Spain... That's so frustrating!! Anyway, customer service is  good and returns are fast.

Studs & Spikes (Trimmings)
As the name says... they have studs and spikes of any shape and color. Prices are quite reasonable.

Whatever you want is on eBay. Be careful with counterfeits and always pay attention to the rating of the seller.
