Sale of the Week

Lantern Moon is well known for their stunning hand-crafted needles. We have carried them since the day we opened. Sadly, they have discontinued their palmwood and blondewood needles–don’t worry, the ebony, rosewood and featherlight slate are all still in production–so we are offering them to you at 15% off until our remaining stock is gone. These needles make excellent gifts or a luxurious treat for...

A Season For Thanks

Thanksgiving has so many connotations. Firstly there’s the tradition of gratitude. What are we thankful for this year? For us, we’re thankful that our January move went smoothly and that our customers have rediscovered us at our new location (which we love, by the way). We’re thankful that we’re located in the Phinneywood community, which has a wonderful tradition of supporting its own. And we’re thankful that we live in the Northwest, with its huge and avid community of knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers, and all kinds of fiber arts devotees. Then there’s the day itself, with its connotation of food, family and overabundance. We hope that your Thanksgiving is stuffed with turkey, TV sports and togetherness. And finally there’s the association with shopping and the start of the holiday gift marathon. For some, it’s a gleeful time of power shopping, Black Friday sales, bargain hunting. Others dread the commercialization of the season. We’re biased, of course, and hope you’ll bear in mind that your small community merchants offer better service with less hassle than the malls. We’d also like to point out that many of us now offer coupons through the local DoPhinneyWood website. But whatever your holiday traditions and consumer bent, we hope that the next six weeks are filled with wintry fun. We’re looking forward to new events like WildLights  at the Woodland Park Zoo and old favorites like the Green Lake Pathway of Lights (this year on December 8). May all your holidays be...
