What is a Haberdashery?

This is a question I have been asked almost Daily since December.

A haberdashery is a shop that sells  small sewing articles like zips, buttons, and lace. They don’t traditionally sell textiles, but we do.

So this makes me a Haberdasher (rather cool title I think) Haberdashers are traditionally men (even cooler)

There is even a french patron saint of haberdashers Saint Louis IX.

That’s him, he doesn’t look to happy, obviously his outfit wasn’t made at Dolly’s 😉

I hope someone found my ramblings of some interest.


Love #teamdolly
