Yarn /Fiber Store
Myrtle Beach, SC
I had the opportunity to vacation with my family in Myrtle Beach, SC this past month. It is a popular vacation destination, and I am happy to report it has a lovely yarn store for those of you knitting while catching a few rays. It took some convincing to get my family in the car and away from the beach to drive to, yes, a yarn store...but really, it was very close to the popular hotels and boardwalk and easy to find. The store itself had much to offer. The selection was decent, there seemed to be a good client base as demonstrated by the ladies sitting around a central table knitting away, and the store was spacious. (I actually prefer a smaller space, but I can definitely see the benefits in expansion.) The thing I loved the most about this store was the number of knitted items around the shop that showed exactly how a particular yarn would look knitted. It was wonderful. I always hate when I spend money on a skein thinking it will look and drape one way only to find I was sorely mistaken. The shawls, scarves, shirts and blankets posted around the establishment were placed near the yarn they were made with, allowing the shopper to really touch, feel, and see what their own project my end up looking like. It was wonderful! The staff was also very friendly. The woman working when I was in their allowed me to browse uninterrupted but was there at the drop of a hat when I needed assistance. It was my ideal shopping experience.
There is a website, linked above, with more information about the store hours, products, and expertise available.
Bottom Line: If you are vacationing in or near Myrtle Beach, you should take the time to check out this store. It is a great shop with a lot to offer and an ideal location to pick up yarn to make that vacation project. If you live near Myrtle Beach and haven't scoped out this local business, you really should, it's worth the trouble.
