Does anyone know of a good online stockist of Victorian/Arts & Crafts/Art Nouveau type fabrics?

I don't have anything particular in mind, we're doing up the house, at the moment & I'd just like to look at sites that have collections of fabrics that would suit the Victorian era.... Shabby chic type fabric would be good too :)

Thanks Goldy, they've got some lovely fabrics but they're not quite what I'm looking for.

Hate to say it but try ebay - I've got some good bargains off there in the past on fabric.

OH went to Stafford Antiques Fair yesterday and bought me some crochet hooks from Rag Rescue (http://www.ragrescue.co.uk/index.php) which is mainly fabrics, might be worth a look.

I'll keep looking on eBay, I was hoping that there might be collections of 'Victorian' style fabrics, to save me from having to trawl through the thousands of listings on eBay:D

Rag rescue's got some nice stuff on their site (I've just had a look) but loads of it has already been sold and some of it comes in quite small pieces.
