Best of 2001: Best Place To Find Cheap, Out-Of-This-World Fabric

UFO (Upholstery Fabric Outlet)
1919 Hoover Avenue, National City
1120 N. Melrose, Vista

At UFO's two warehouse locations, every material you could ever hope to weave into your world exists. And, at a price up to 25 percent off if you have your upholsterer buy it. You can re-cover anything from a boat canvas to a convertible top. Carpeting, foam, and car leather are available. The store is able to offer the same fabric as those trendy high-priced stores because it buys from mills without selling closeouts or seconds. Finally, chenille, silk, velour, tapestries, and animal prints are affordable and just a close encounter away. Prices range from discontinued fabrics at $2 to $8 a yard; medium fabrics, $10 to $20; and higher end from $30 to $100 a yard.
