        Barb,
        Are the mills open to the public and where are they?
        You say you may open a shop in Stone mountain, does
        that mean Atlanta area? I've always heard mills sell
        very inexpensively but have never had a chance to see
        for myself. thanx

          I'm interested in sari silks in a red or dark red. However, I'm pretty game for solid colored silks as well. Can't wait til your website is up and running.

            Linda, there are "outlets" that sell to the public. If
            you have a truck and can buy 100lbs or more at one
            time (some are more), you can purchase from the mills.
            There are mills scattered across the US.
