Wow...what a disappointment. This used to be my go to yarn store. Now it's just sad. The original owner is retired and it doesn't seem like it's been updated in the last 5+ years.

If you are interested in vintage patterns, go here. They have a nice selection of Anny Blatt magazines at original retail price--magazines from the 1980s. They also have quite a bit of yarns that have been discontinued for years--at full retail prices. So if you are interested in spending more money on yarn than you could find on eBay, go here. Lots of Jaeger and Rowan Plaid but still full retail.

On the plus side, it sounded like they updated the stereo system and are no longer playing AM radio. And the dogs are gone.

Other than that, they have nothing current, nothing modern and their sock yarn selection was limited to Cascade and a few skeins of Lorna's Laces in the original put up.

This store needs serious updating. Otherwise, it's just tired and sad, like an old house waiting to be demolished.
