I have been shopping at this store since it opened. I have to say that I love the store, the owner and the people who have worked and are working there!

Yes, there is Red Heart & Super Saver yarn available here. That's understandable because of the location of the store. The nearest Wal-Mart, Michael's and JoAnn's are more than 20 miles away. The owner is simply providing yarn for those who can't afford the more expensive yarn and also cannot, for whatever reason, get to the stores. We are a rural community with all levels of income. This store is wonderful in that it provides for all those levels.

This store has a friendly atmosphere and is kid friendly!

Meh. If I lived in Chestertown, I suppose I would be glad that this shop was there, because something is better than nothing. But the selection is small and prices are kinda high (not the highest I have ever seen, but on the high end of normal). Selection is not great. There area a few nice things. She carries a fair amount of Plymouth, which is always nice stuff, and some local alpaca that is priced at about twice what other shops price it at. Bizzarely, she also carries a lot of Red Heart, even Super Saver. Her shop also has a policy of requiring a $20 purchase to use your debit card, so bring cash! I understand that stores pay fees to use these services, but I was still annoyed by this. In the age of the debit card, it is no longer reasonable to expect people to make minimum purchases (especially that high) to use electronic payment forms.

Overall, while it's not a "bad" shop, it's not one I can get excited over, either. If I lived there, I would be glad to have something available, but I would always wish for more. For me, the most exciting thing about this shop was that it was located inside an old train station. Kinda cool.
