If you can't find a lot of selection for weekend shopping on 4th St, you could go across the river to Pennsauken. I know that my favorite fabric store was gone when I got desperate and went home to go fabric shopping last year, but I did find a couple others along 130 S that were open on the weekend.
Also, if you have access to a car, I highly recommend the Atlantic Bookwarehouse on Rte 70 in Cherry Hill, NJ. It's about twenty minutes from downtown Philadelphia and very easy to find. I don't remember the address but it's where the old Ellisburg Circle used to be. They usually have a huge variety of highly discounted sewing and craft books that you can't find at Barnes & Noble or Borders. I came home with about eight new sewing/needlepoint/jewelry books last year. They had a nice variety when I was there at the beginning of October, David Coffin's shirtmaking book had a very good price, but my husband was tapping his toe (we were supposed to be on the way to my grandmother's birthday party) and I couldn't really stop to buy anything.
