Whoever said money can’t buy happiness
simply didn’t know where to go shopping.
Fort Wayne had a lovely yarn shop for many years—The Cass Street Depot. It was housed in a charming late-19th century railroad station, and sold all of my favorite yarn. The Depot closed last May so we were suffering from withdrawal until recently. Now we have two (count them—2) yarn stores.
Knitting Off Broadway opened in December at 613 West Brackenridge Street, just off Broadway a couple blocks south of Jefferson Boulevard. The shop has an earthy but upscale feel and plenty of room.
Sarah Jane’s Yarn Shoppe opened yesterday at 3400 North Anthony Boulevard next to the Bead Source south of the IPFW campus. It is bright and cheery with several rooms of yarn.
I am going to have to alternate my yarn shop visits between the two since they are both so nice. I do wish them each the greatest success.
A really thought-provoking quote.
Deep down I still believe that money can’t buy me happiness, but good yarn shops make me doubt it a little 🙂
I always hate to hear when a good yarn store closes down, serious wah, but hey, aren’t you fortunate to have two crop up???
I have to agree with the quote, I’m one of those seemingly ‘rare’ ones, hate to shop… except in yarn stores, I can and do spend hours just looking around at everything, the whole time feeling quite content and…yes, happy.
