and even better than before, we think.
During our two weeks of being closed, we've moved the shop into the end of our building, to the room we (mistakenly) used for back stock for so long...not considering that it has all the windows and natural light.
For those of you who remember how hard it was to see colors in the "old" shop...you'll be happy at this first big change. Next, I pared down the height of all the shelving, so it's nice and open and, well...clean feeling. Know how some yarn stores make you feel like you're smothering (happily or otherwise) in shelves? We took care of that!
We opened the doors yesterday morning, waiting to hear what our customers had to say. The first person in the door
(I apologize for not asking your name!) was aghast at how great it feels, and had so many compliments I wished I'd had a bouquet of flowers to give her...I wanted to smother her with hugs, I was so happy that SHE was so happy. We know we have lots of you who love our shop (thank you thank you thank you) and any kind of change always harbors the possibility of making someone unhappy. Here's a photo of her, along with Linda and Joan at the counter.
I've also included some photos from different places in the shop, so if you can't get here for a while, you can see some of what we've been up to.
Notice all the natural light, fighting with my camera but blessing the shop.
To those of you who made the trip to visit us while we were closed, I apologize again for not being able to let you in...there really wasn't any point...there were yarns in bags strewn everywhere.
To the local woman who came to see us, found us closed, and got nasty with me about me not considering her time was worth something...well...if you're even reading this, which I doubt...I hope you can find happiness shopping in another yarn shop somewhere else. ---Martie
