Current Tags What is a Tag:
Have you bought anything from this store? If yes were the prices competitive?
I've bought several lengths of silk and wool and some linings from this store. The prices are fair for the qualities offered.

Were the sales people polite and friendly?
Yes.

How would you rate the quality of the item this store sells?
The store only stocks solid quality, wools, a few silks or silk meixes, some lining, occasionally cotton.

How was your shopping experience. Is there anything you did not like about this store?
This store is a take it as you find it kind of place. The owners are always willing to help you find what you are looking for in their stock, which is odd rolls. For example whilst I have bought several lining lengths of good quality at a really good price, they don't aim to stock a full range of linings. The main stock is wool suitings and coatings.

Would you shop here again?
Undoubtedly

Would you recommend this store to others?
Yes.

Any other comments you would like to add?
Quaker Street is off Brick Lane in East London. Brick Lane, especially on Sundays, is a lively area which draws a lot of tourists for its street markets and stalls, not far from the Spitalfields Market, also a popular attraction. Crescent Trading is open on Sundays (but not Saturdays). Its not close to the usual sewist stomping grounds of Goldhawk Road and Berwick Street, but well worth visiting if you are in the area, or looking for some decent quality wool at a reasonable price.
