Callie loved the space, and I still loved the space, and we signed a lease memo and gave the landlord half of the up-front money.

My stomach is full of the peskiest butterflies -- it's hard to even come up with a comparable feeling.

This is it! The space! Oh, man!

Here's a look at it, the 2nd floor of 325 Gold Street, in Brooklyn.

Anyone want to invest in a yarn store?

Nice space! Nice light! YAY!

Just got back from my nearest LYS and I wish I could shop at your place. Their Fizzlesnaff McGlitter is reaaaaally encroaching on the Serious Wool, fie!

Congratulations! I've peeked in on occasion to see how things were progressing so I'm delighted to read that you will have a home! I'm moving into a new house which will give me one whole room for my sewing materials with doors that I can close to lock out cats and other people. I'm delighted and thrilled and can only imagine how much larger your joy is.

Good luck! Can't wait to read how this progresses. Now I'll have to come up with an excuse to get to Brooklyn.

Good luck Rose! I know someone who's been running a yarn store in Lexington for quite a while and it can be tough, but she loves it. Are you going to aim at a particular market? Like stocking only natural yarns to aim at a mid - high clientele?

Congratulations. I look forward to sending my mother to a local yarnery.
