The woman working when I went in was really sweet, so I feel bad being negative...but it is a business and they need to start treating the store/online presence as one!) The store is not hard to find, is just that the signage is completely illegible! I have passed the store numerous times and not known what it was as you can't read the sign and the display in the front window is laid flat so unless you are right next to the window, can't even see it is a yarn shop (it is quite dark inside). The yarn itself is lovely - interesting breeds and yarns. Nice selection of hand dyed colours which they do in store. The problem is how to buy it. They sell by the gram and have no idea how many yards is in the skein! The person in store at the time offered to weigh a yard for me so that we could work it out, but I didn't have time to wait. (Have they never had anyone else ask before??? And I can answer that myself...yes they have. I have since spoken to someone who contacted them online with the same question and never heard back!). The shop is cute and looks all 'olde worlde', the yarns are nice, and the people seemed nice. Unfortunately it is just too much hassle as far as buying is concerned. And isn't that what a 'shop' is for??? PYF - Just put the work in and figure out how much yardage you are selling - list it on the labels and online. Trust me, you will sell a LOT more yarn. Art school quirky only gets you so far.
