And So It Begins.....Main Street Yarn
Some of you might think...uh-oh...what happened. The title of this post can be interpreted in to way -- positively or negatively. This post is positive VERY POSITIVE.
A long-time dream has been to own a yarn shop. In a month or so that dream will become a reality thanks to my husband. He purchased a former bank building in Rebersburg, PA and gave me the back three rooms and funding to open the shop, purchase merchandise and hire a fabulous person to work there with me and teach classes. No, I'm not leaving my fulltime job so a knowledgable co-worker was a requirement.
Keith is opening Forefathers Used Book Shop in the front section of the building. Those renovatiosn are complete and it looks gorgeous. The shelves are getting fuller and fuller each day.
Renovations began a week ago and the difference is amazing. Oh there is a long way to go but the guys are quick workers. The changes in a week are startling...the place already looks bigger and brighter!
This blog will be connected to the website once it is up and running. I do hope people comment and ask questions. I considered an additional shop blog but had to be realistic with my time limitations. The shop is me and so is this blog.
I have a beautiful logo but am not unveiling it or giving clues to what yarns or other products will be in the shop. I am still deciding and ordering -- althought boxes are arriving almost daily.
The building has a long history in Rebersburg and has some special touches that are remaining with the integrity of the building. It also had some paneling that was removed.
Two days later. Walls are up.
