Who.. us?? Well sadly not knitting and crocheting as much as we want to. HOWEVER we just embarked on quite the adventure. We opened a retail store – The Modern Mercantile – in the heart of historic downtown Monroe Washington!!! Say what!? That’s right, Mary and I have wanted to do this for some time. It has been a long time dream, so when the perfect location was available we couldn’t say no. What was our 2 year plan turned into our 18 day plan. That’s right we opened up our store in 18 days! It was a lot of blood, sweat and tears (of joy) but we opened and have had such a positive response, we couldn’t be happier. With all that said, now that we are settled into our space and our new nook (we created specially for Mary and I to craft the day away, in between customers of course) has been outfitted with all the essentials, we are ready to get back to our first love – fiber arts. The store offers us the perfect place to sell our knitted and crochet wares and give back to the community by featuring other local artisans and hosting make ‘n’ takes. Again we couldn’t be more thrilled.
We’ll be ready with fresh posts and awesome new free patterns next week. Until then check out our new store’s website and “like” us on Facebook!
OH! and if you know of a cool line of products that you think we should take a look at, knitted/crochet or otherwise send it on over! 🙂
