End of an era

LaCasita Yarn shop has been a place that I’ve frequented for at least 2 years. In this time, they became my family. I always joke and say that they are my Cheers because everyone knows my name. It’s been home. It’s far away, but always worth the travel.

On June 30, 2016, this 6 year old shop closed its doors. Goodbye world! There were festivities and there were people, but at the end of all that, there was no more shop.  Where else can you get vegan chocolate cake, mulled wine, and a skein of yarn?  Where else can I see Jennifer Lopez without the paparazzi? 

Salute to LaCasita for transforming lives and for making Brooklyn great. You will be missed.

Another one bites the dust

The only yarn shop in Westchester County (at least before the Tapanzee Bridge) is closing.
A lot of shops are dropping like flies.  This just goes to show how much more we need to be in support of our LYS. I’m guilty too.I did not shop here much; I’m not sure if I can buy anything, but I’ll look and see.
This is the email I received today.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce String Theory will be closing its doors permanently on June 30th, 2014The last 3 years have been a great ride but the combination of online competitive pricing and declining sales have made it impossible to keep the store open.
