Stitching Memories is holding it's Second Annual Yarn Swap Saturday Sept 20th from 11-3.
Super fun, right? $5 to join in the fun, with the fiver going to charity, and $5 if you need to rent a table. Hit link if you need more details. Or call the shop.
So, this lead me to think, wow, I have a huge stash of yarn, you have a huge stash of yarn, everyone I know has a huge stash of yarn, now hold on for a bit...
There's this building for sale down town that I've wanted to buy with the imaginary money I have in my imaginary bank account. I have no actually business in mind, I just wanted to have people come hang out. The plan was all very Dharma from that one Dharma and Greg episode, accept I would have to charge you to come in to hang out. I'd have to pay the utilities some how.
ANYWAY...the yarn swap lead me to thinking, "what about a Yarn Consignment Shop?" It's not like my downtown doesn't already have like 5 consignment shops. Why not one more, plus the hang out space. I mean, I'm using my imaginary money, why not.
There you go, please, someone with real money, take this idea and run. A yarn consignment shop, and hang out place. No barky ass dogs, comfy couches, rum and cola, and cupcakes. I think that would be just fine.
