Big things ahead for Yarnivore

It's going to be quite a month for Yarnivore -- I'll be attending the National Needlework Association trade show 10 days from now, where I'll get to see the just about all the commercial yarns that will be available in the 2004-05 fall/winter knitting season. I found the trade show to be an invigorating experience last year, and I am looking forward to getting a shot in the arm next weekend.

It can no longer be put off: space hunting must begin in earnest. I have a new idea about this: I'm going to walk around the neighborhoods I'm interested in, to look for "For Rent" signs in windows. This should work better now that I have a cell phone. My theory is that many of these spaces for rent never even show up in the rental listings, for various reasons. I'm hoping to snare a sublet. This has the downside that Yarnivore will have to move when the sublet is up, but has the bonus that I don't have to get tied down to a multi-year commercial lease just as I'm getting the business started.

Hi Yarnivore,

About a year ago my sister and I were considering opening a boutique, so we investigated the rental opportunities in Brooklyn Heights a bit. A year later, some of those spaces are still available. I know of another vacant commercial space in Brooklyn Heights. I'll email it to you. Like most of Bklyn Hts it's probably overpriced, but hey - you never know.
