When we were away I picked up a couple of business cards of places/sites I wanted to visit online when we got back home.
Saw this woman at a Sunday market; P.Carter Carpin
It was the bright colours that first caught my eye, but I loved the name banners. They are made with felted wool, which is something I would like to try. The link to this lady's Etsy store is above.
King William Alpacas was also at this same market. Not the Alpacas but their human owners!!! I hummed and haa-ed over their yarn as it was to die for but ultimately I didn't buy any, which was a mistake on my part, and I am sad that I didn't. They did say if you call first to make arrangements they will show you the alpacas, which I thought was nice. Here is one of their Alpacas Flash:
You can buy yarn from Flash's coat here:
One store I sought out while in Williamsburg was The Spice and Tea Exchange. That was a store for all your senses to drink in. It was a delight and the lady that was working that day was a joy to deal with. We picked up some spices as a gift for someone and it included their own Signature Spice Blend.
Everywhere you turned though there was something new to see and look at. If you are in the area you should check out these places.
