My, how times have changed! When I was growing up in the 50's & 60's, we didn't even know such a thing as a yarn shop existed. All of our wool was purchased from Frank's Nursery, a garden/home/craft chain in the midwest (grew up in Michigan). How luck for us there are actual yarn stores thriving today.

See how neat and clean the 50s yarn shop looks? And there isn't really a lot of inventory. It's great the selection of yarn we have today compared with back then. I still love making things with vintage embroidery thread and fabric, tho.
