Kindly email me as to whether you have Nelson Falls to Lakefield, A History of the Village in stock and the cost? Time is of the essence as a friend is driving from Lakefield to my home in Florida, shortly.
Many thanks!

Do you have Nelson' Falls to Lakefield, A History of the Village, in stock? If yes, what is the cost? I happened upon it during a recent visit. I was born in Lakefield but left in 1944!
Recently, took a sentimental visit HOME. TY for any information. So sorry I missed seeing your place. It sounds so cute!

Wonderful atmosphere in this small town store that I "happened upon" with a fantastic selection of books and yarn. Great day trip to Lakefield, Ontario.

This knitting store knocks my socks off! My first project was a scarf knit in Misti Alpaca and it turned out beautifully. Susan couldn't have been more helpful with my selection. I will be back!

I love this independent bookstore and knitting shop with its charming, old-fashioned store front. With a great selection of current fiction and non-fiction, as well as old favourites, I find the owner Susan and her staff to be very friendly and helpful. The wool selection is excellent and sure to meet the needs of all levels of knitters.

First time I went in with hubby: I was ignored while the shop lady talked to another lady by the cash register for ten minutes (not about yarn or purchasing), we got annoyed waiting and went elsewhere to buy (Misti Alpaca which I made cowl out of). Gave it another shot when my friend was visiting from out of town, was ignored again until we went poking for more of a colourway we liked (one on shelf and labelled drawers beneath). Got told off for going into the drawer, very rudely too, not going back again

I know the Gypyspinner's work and her product is wonderful. Happy shopping

This store carries some amazing handspun yarns from Gypsyspinner. I love the handspun alpaca and handyed wool yarns.

For such a small store, there is a surprising and excellent range of yarns, including Noro, Rowan, Misti Alpaca, and a wide range of baby yarns and cottons.
