Haberdasher is an awesome word!

From wikipedia:

A haberdasher is a person who sells small articles for sewing, such as buttons, ribbons, zips, and other notions. In American English, haberdasher is another term for a men's outfitter.

I wish people used this word more often. "Yeah, I've gotta go to the haberdasher after work."

    So JoAnn's Fabrics is a haberdasher? Yesterday I went to the haberdasher to pick up some fabric to make a covering for my kitchen window.

    I've been waiting for the perfect time to post my 100th comment and here it is

    I live in Haberdasher Square Lofts. Why is it called Haberdasher Square Lofts? Becuase it used to be the home to the Hart Schaffner and Marx suit factory! 😀

    In Britain, they do. I think technically the haberdahser is the proprietor of a haberdashery. But I am not certain.
