Our New North Bay Retail Store Is Now Open! 147 Main Street West. North Bay, Ontario

I invite you to visit my new retail store located   at 147 Main Street West in downtown North Bay I spent 3 days last week moving locations.  With the help of some very dedicated friends and my family and a lot of hard work we are now in our new beautiful home.

I am so proud to show you photos of my new store interior and windows, featuring our wonderful hand knitting yarns & accessories. Let me show you around:

  1. Wow - Rae the store looks awesome. You've put a lot of hard work into this and it shows! Can't wait to see it myself in a couple of weeks. Congratulatons and all the best in the future :)

  2. Rae, how can I obtain your pattern EMMA & tapestry scarf SCRIBBLES?
    I live in Listowel. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you.

  3. Your store looks great, Rae! How long did it take you to organize all those products? Who helped you? Belated congratulations, btw. Opening a retail store is like giving birth to another life. Now, your 1st birthday is coming up! What's your plan?

  4. Love how you stacked your items crosswise in the shelves. The items on the end tables and the baskets by the edge of your counters don’t look so safe there. Your store today must look a lot different!
