There is still some tweaking to do, but, for the most part, I like the results - inside and out.
If you've been following the evolution of the pop up store, you will notice that I diminished the number of yarn bins in favour of more natural light. I decided that no amount of battery powered light provides truer colour than the sun through the windows and the samples can now be viewed through the windows before you even come in to shop! What this also means is that it will now be a new store every 6-8 weeks rather than once a month.
You will notice at the bottom of the second photo that I have masks hanging out waiting for me to put them on. I also have masks for customer use - you take it with you when you leave or chuck it in the garbage provided - and unscented hand sanitizer to be applied before you squish the yarn. Can't have anyone saying they got sick because they squeezed a ball of yarn😷.
I apologize in advance if you feel a little seasick from the following video. I had a couple of squirrel moments while filming it but it gives you a good idea of how much yarn will be available every week. I try to be thematic with my selection, so this week is all about the self patterning yarns (and coordinating solids in some cases). See all the lovely rainbow coloured yarns and all the things you can make with them? I also apologize for sounding so excited. I blame it on my deep alto, matter-of-fact tone you've all come to know and love 😉
p.s. Due to online sales, I've sold some of the yarn and roving since the video but if you request things that are currently out of stock, I will endeavour to get more in as soon as my suppliers can accomodate.
