What a fun day we had today!
When Sonia, of Stash, contacted us, wanting to sell our buttons in her yarn shop, we thought it would be so fun to deliver them in person, about an hour and a half drive from our home. To be honest, I was a little nervous about our truck, given it’s history, but we felt it was in good working order now and decided to go for it.
We left on our adventure this morning and saw two rainbows on the drive through the country, which was a wonderful way to start the day. We were early, so we stopped by The First Alternative Co-Op in Corvallis, with it’s freshly colorful produce section. Then we drove a few blocks down from there and met Sonia, of Stash, who was delightful. We brought her a wide variety of buttons to choose from. While she perused the buttons, we admired her gorgeous yarn shop. We loved how spacious and open it was. It had a calm feeling, a place one could happily sit knitting, reading, and sipping tea all day long. And oh the yarn! Every color and kind of yarn you can imagine. I wanted to touch each and every skein.
Her shop has an emphasis on products handmade in the Northwest, so many yarns were from local farms. There were also bags of colorful wool for needle felters, which had me drooling, and a selection of knitting books.
There was awe-inspiring artwork on the walls by local artists.
Stash is now officially my favorite yarn shop!
We are so delighted to have our handmade wooden buttons there.

Or better yet, if you are a local fiber enthusiast, I highly recommend visiting the sweet space of Stash, located on 3rd Street in Corvallis. Say hello to Sonia and check out the classes they offer while you’re there!
