Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

The Mill Outlet

My favorite fabric store! I've been shopping at the Mill Outlet for years. I just love the place. It's been in business for over 50 years now. They literally have miles and miles of fabric. I love the smell in there. It smells like fabric, of course! It's not a chain store. The owner is a curmudgeonly old German man who definitely does not get any points for pleasantness. (Really, he can be quite rude so you have to be prepared for that -- or just avoid him, ha. Best policy is to ask anyone but him for help if you need it!). But I don't care. I always find what I'm looking for and I always find what I'm NOT looking for, which can be a little hard on the wallet!

Apologies for the bad photos -- like yesterday's post, I used my cell phone because I didn't have a real camera with me.
Yes, this fabric has Frida Kahlo on it!!! What more could you ask from a fabric store?!? It's awesome!

Again the spanish, wrapped in fabrics.
It is very used in Colorado, so I see.

Frida's unexpected to find on fabric!

Interesting fabric store, I thought it looked like a library at first. I like your description of the owner :)
