The Local Yarn Shop meets the Mall

Today was a day I will never forget! One of my fave local yarn shops, Rumplestiltskin Yarns opened up a kiosk in the mall! Thats right the mall! This is their third location!!! Amazing! Pretty much I can get my hands on yarn in all my favorite places…. The village of stony brook, Sayville and now the mall!

They coupled yarn with patterns in kit form that are super fashionable and shopper friendly! The color choices and pairings were like fine wine and cheese! My fave parts were the notions because I love notions and never am able to find my needles. They stock a full line of the Brittany hardwood needles and shawl pins as well as a selection of circular knitting needles. My choice of the day was a cute yarn bag perfect to put a project in to protect your yarn from rolling around everywhere when you knit. ( this is especially important when you knit in public… Which I do quite often)

In short, it’s a success!! I can’t wait to see how many people decide to pick up some needles just bc of the kiosk!
(I wonder if they will hire people with fancy accents that say you must try it like the nail and hand lotion kiosk in the mall… Jk but a cool idea to have people just try it!)

Love to here what you think about the kiosk or about the idea in general.

You know the deal… 5 comments free pattern posted!!!

  1. Nice! I love my local yarn shops! It’s nice to go in there and see and feel the yarn for yourself as well as chat to the other people there. I know online shopping has a place too, but there’s nothing like an actual yarn shop.
