Remembering the Yarn Garden...End of an Era

I recently got an email from a favorite yarn shop in my old neighborhood, the Yarn Garden.  The subject line said, "Goodbye from Yarn Garden".  What??  Though I hadn't been over there in quite a while, since we moved to the other side of town, I was filled with sadness.  After almost 15 years in business, they were getting ready to close their doors.  I decided to go down to visit one last time, and see if I could find some goodies at their Goodbye Sale (50% off everything!).  I decided to bring my camera along, to document this historic event.

Approaching the shop
It was a gray day, to match my somber mood.  

The shop looked so empty by the time I got there, but there were still some good deals left.

A few last shots of the old girl...

I paid for my purchases, took a last look around, and left.  We will miss you, Yarn Garden!

Sad when such things happen - and there's supposed to be a renaissance in knitting (at least in the UK). Even though I don't now knit, I share your sadness. A lot of experience and love went into making it a goer.

Found you on LinkedIn - hope to see more of your activities. Isobel Morrell
