Dear Mood: You drive me crazy. You post all these photos of great fabrics on Instagram but often they're only available at your brick-and-mortar stores. Which are nowhere near to me. Why can't I buy these same fabrics online at MoodFabrics.com? We get asked this question all the time by our customers. To answer it we need to first explain about the two types of fabrics Mood buys from its vendors and sources: reorderable and closeout. Reorderable means just that—when we've sold nearly all of the fabric (or trim) we can reorder more from the vendor. Reorderable fabrics can be found in both our stores and online. These tend to be staple fabrics in solid colors that never go out of style, like all kinds of silks, ponte knits, jerseys and more. Home decor fabrics usually are reorderable for periods of time. Closeout means the fabric or trim will not be reproduced again and is only available until the last inch is sold. The fabrics Mood buys from designers—including Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, Thakoon, Anna Sui, etc.—are generally always closeout fabrics. Once a closeout fabric is gone, it's gone for good.
