After looking at nearly every available space in my community’s downtown district, I have found a home for Stash. It had to have the right combination of space, character, natural light, and potential. I believe this spot has everything I was looking for, plus room to grow. And look at that window! Can’t you just imagine the wonderful display possibilities?!
This whole opening a yarn shop thing is really cutting in to my knitting time. I had to take advantage of this moment and get a few stitches in on my around town sock!
Now that the space is secured, I am moving pretty quickly in an attempt to open at the beginning of October. My mind is abuzz with ideas for the layout, including a seating area, gallery space, learning space, storage, and display. The vendor list is pretty exciting, and I’ve started placing orders and receiving shipments! And soon there will be the not so small task of cleaning this place up (oh, the dust!), painting, and putting in all of the fixtures.
This is a very exciting time, indeed! I can’t wait to show you the transformation as it unfolds.
