Busy Saturday

We had a busy Saturday in the Chapel Hill store this week. Not a busy day helping people pick out new projects but a busy day organizing. This is the "move-in " Saturday at UNC . We know that students and parents are busy moving into their dorms and the Chapel Hill natives are staying home away from traffic. We also had ominous dark clouds hovering and I knew all of those factors would make it a great day to rearrange the store.
This is Sarah building new shelves to put all the new Fall yarns in. This grid  shelf system is great for our displays but it is tedious to put together. We knew we just had to keep building it then secure it with tie wraps to make sure it didn't fall apart under the weight of the yarn.

We were rewarded with our hard work when we got to arrange all of the new yarns on the shelves. We got to fondle all of the new wool/silk blends, the alpacas, the tweeds, the new lace weights, the colorful sock yarn. I was sure I would have so many empty shelves to fill up with all the yarns that haven't arrived yet. No- I'll have to find some room to build some more shelves!

We finished putting everything neatly on the shelves and cleaning up right at 5:00. It looks great and I even had time to pick  a  project from the new yarns and patterns to take home and start last night.
