Yarn Sale!

Just a quick post to say we have lots of yarn on sale in the shop! Stop in to see 30%, 40%, and even 50% off select items! We have lots of great yarns on our sale self including Lana Grossa self striping sock yarn, Urban Silk (100% silk), and Bambou Soft (bamboo and merino, and one of my personal favorites), plus many more.

The grand re-opening was a huge success on Friday! Thank you to every one who stopped in to say congrats and take advantage of the sale, it was a blast. Though we were swamped I did manage to get a few photos snapped:

Since the shop has officially "settled in" to the new space, I decided it was time to start shaking things up and moving stuff around this weekend! We have had a chance to see what was working, what was not, and here comments and suggestions from our customers, and now we are all working together to try and streamline yarn, books, and needles to make for a truly wonderful shopping experience. I'll be sure to post photos this week as it all comes together.

Oh, and the Boss and I are discussing next month's class schedule tomorrow afternoon, stay tuned for that later this week!

Grand (Re) Opening Celebration!

I know I mentioned yesterday that Beach Basket Yarns has moved next door to a new and improved, bigger and brighter space! It was a long process through February, but it is starting to look and feel more like "home" each and every day.

To celebrate, we are throwing a big Grand Opening Celebration this friday, March 12th, from 3-5pm. Come on in and see the beautiful new space, share some wine and appetizers with us, and enjoy 25% off ALL BOOKS AND YARN! Yeah! There is not a knitter that I know that can resist yarn on sale, so make sure to mark your calendar.

We look forward to seeing you Friday!

Note: Sale excludes needles, consignment items, and already discounted items.

Hello! I'm Rebecca. If you have been into the shop in the past few weeks you might have seen me working there. I started helping out in the shop and teaching some classes this February after the big move.

Since I started last month I have realized that we have so much great stuff going on in the shop that I would like to send out a mailer to our mailing list every day. But, since I hate to inundate you all like that, I suggested to Mary ("the boss") that I start a blog instead. Great idea, huh? You must think so since you are the one reading this!

So, bookmark this site and start checking back often! I plan to update here several days a week with all of the haps in the shop: new yarns, projects, classes, and other events. In the mean time if you would like to find out more about this crazy person writing this (and all other) posts, you can check out my own blog here, or stop in the shop!
