Serendipity, Buena Vista

Stop 14 on the Colorado Yarn Tour was Serendipity in Buena Vista.

Wow, what a store! Serendipity is a combination yarn store and gift shop.

It is a beautiful older house that has been converted into this wonderful welcoming shop where every room reveals a beautiful array of 'treasures'. There are goodies spread throughout the 2 floors. I could have spent hours brwsing, oohing and aahing over everything.

I think all of my favourite yarn brands were there in abundance too. (Joe is grateful it's not too close to home. ;o)

One of the ladies at the store described it as a destination yarn store. And I'd agree -- definately worth making a trip to go see. And if you do happen to be in the area, we had lunch at a lovely cafe called Mothers. Delicious food in cosy surroundings.

Oooh and before I forget, I picked up this skein for the 'myth' that is my Colorado blanket.

My sister and I toy with the idea of owning a yarn store back in the UK, and Serendipity is exactly the kind of place I'd love for us to run. Maybe with one of the rooms converted into a tea shop. 'Cause knitting can be thirsty work, right!

I've been to Serendipity and loved it but haven't been to their new location. Thanks for giving me a peek-- I think I need to head out there soon.

There you go with the 'C' word again!! :D

Can't wait for your yarn store idea to come to fruition. Would it be in Lancashire? If so I will probably go bankrupt!
