As a yarn shop, we frequently have folks come in asking if we are selling the handmade items on display in the store (we don’t). Our display items come from a huge number of places – they are all time-consuming to create and important for the shop to keep on display in order to sell our yarn. We commission them from staff and sample knitters, or they are on loan from the yarn companies themselves. Over the years, though, we have accumulated a lovely collection of samples that we can no longer use. They are made from yarns that we no longer carry at the shop. This year, to benefit our neighbors and one of our favorite Alexandria nonprofits, we are going to sell these lovely handmade pieces at a special Sample Sale outside in our park space! Join us on Saturday, April 24, from 11am to 2pm. We will have samples from our store and many of our amazing vendors for you to browse, try on, and purchase with a donation directly to Friends of Guest House as part of Alexandria’s Spring2Action. We have everything from hats and scarves to sweaters and home goods. All are handmade with natural fibres – Wool, Merino Wool, Cashmere, and more. Stop by and shop these amazing items – it’s to benefit a wonderful organization! Friends of Guest House helps women successfully enter the community after incarceration. We are proud to have them as our neighbors!
