If you love a good bargain, come check out our sale table. We changed it up this weekend, and it now includes a wide variety of non-fiction (biographies, christian living, cookbooks, history, true crime, science, among others), all for $1 each or 3 for $2. At that price, you can’t go wrong!
It feels like we just opened, and yet this week is our 5th anniversary. We’ve come a long way.
We had 4,914 books entered into our inventory the day we opened; we’ve entered 60,028 since then, and have 24,291 in stock right now. We also expanded our offerings to include knitting and crochet tools, yarn, knitting bags and a few other gifty things, like bags and wallets, tea and coffee presses, hand made local pottery, jewellery, soap and hand knits.
We’ve had about 20 artists displaying their work here over the past 5 years, hosted a half dozen concerts, and 40 coffee houses. We’ve also offered a dozen knitting classes, and countless knit nights over that time.
The ride has been a little crazy, a little exhausting, and a lot of fun, and we wouldn’t be here, celebrating our 5th anniversary without all of you. Thank you to each and every one of you who has supported us over these past 5 years, and helped and encouraged us along the way.
As a small token of our appreciation, we will be holding an anniversary sale this week from today, September 21st, to Saturday, September 26th – 20% off all books and yarn (including books and yarn already on sale).
Do you like our handmade soaps? We now have draining soap trays to keep those soaps going longer!
Do you try to buy local whenever you can? Or love the idea of knowing where your wool comes from? We now have a small lot of yarns from Laughing Lamb Woolery here in Dawson Creek. On the labels, you even get to see which sheep or part of the flock produced that particular yarn! These are beautiful, rustic, aran weight yarns at $11 per 4 oz skeins, that soften and bloom a lot once soaked in Eucalan or similar wool washes. Come check them out!
We’re bringing in something new, and that means all our remaining Namaste purses/knitting bags are now 20% off. If you’ve been eyeing one, come pick it up at a discount before it’s gone!
Do you love the thrill of finding a new indie dyer? I do. And have we found a great one (with a little help of course)!
We just got in our very first shipment of Yarn Indulgences. Setting this up has been a delight, and we absolutely love the yarn, so we’ll definitely be getting more next year.
For now, we’re stocking her Style Fingering – a fingering weight merino/silk blend with an amazing hand, and her Indulgent DK – a super squishy merino. And the colours! You just have to see and feel this stuff in person, so I’m not even going to try to put up a picture that would do it justice…
So, come on in and take a look, and treat yourself to a little indulgence!
It’s hard to believe it’s already December, and yet, here it is! We’ve filled up our kids table and front window display with an assortment of Christmas novels, Christmas craft books, etc, to get you in the mood for the season.
We’ve also got an assortment of gifts for that special person in your life. Little tea or coffee goody baskets make great teacher presents, and we’ve got travel mugs, tea/coffee presses, Torani syrups, milk frothers, etc. for the tea or coffee lover on your list. We’ve also got an assortment of knitting needles and tools, wooden crochet hook sets, yarn, SOAK products (wool wash, Handmaiden hand cream and Heel foot cream), as well as Namaste knitting bags and purses, and of course our very own hand made soaps.
Or, if you see something you would like for yourself, leave us your wishlist and tell your Santa it’s here. We’ll be happy to share it with him when we see him next!
Looking for a new wallet for Christmas? We just got in a new shipment, including several of the Andy Everson designs. Here’s a sneak peak:
What is a 3, 2, 1 sale, you ask?
It’s our newly stocked sale table! These are all books we’re clearing out to make space for newer stock, and all are priced at $3, $2 or $1. There’s a little bit of everything in this sale. Right now, the table is loaded up with young readers, fiction, romance and a few cookbooks. Check in often, though; we’ll be adding lots more over the coming weeks, from history to Christian fiction and everything in between!
Have you always wanted to learn how to knit socks?
