An elegant sufficiency

Sunday, August 13, 2006


Yes, there was a yarn shop today - a very good one, too. Kaleidoscope Yarns in Essex Junction had another amazing selection of unusual hand-dyes, together with an excellent collection of good quality, plainer "extraordinaries". Nice, friendly service too - a warm welcome does make it easier to spend the pennies!

But we had fun at the Vermont Teddy Bear Company, too. Someone with a great sense of humour there. as we browsed the shop after the tour, we wondered why this bear was labelled "an alien".

We soon found out why:

He's called the "over the hill" bear.

  • Your post has given me a real Sunday morning chuckle. It's great to see a retail business with a sense of humour - I doubt the owner of the store below has much of one. What were they selling? I know I could never shop there, as putting on perfume and deodorant are, in my opinion part of good personal grooming.

    Anyway, enough of my opinions. I am so jealous that you got to visit Webs. It sounds as if you're having a wonderful time, with every day throwing up at least one truly memorable experience.

  • Wah! One of those bears was saying Take me to Dorothy and you didn't even hear! Grin
    My Alpaca teddy says to say hello to them.
