The more I discovered, the more I fell in love. The store meets several of our needs:
- It's a place to go to search for, find, and purchase creative craft and project items. Inventory is an eclectic mix of traditional craft supplies, recycled materials, and other excess products from building companies and classrooms, for example.
- Many cute incidents happened during our visit:
An volunteer's son (who was a bit older than E) helped her browse for something to transform into a coffee coaster for Mr. SPS for Father's Day. Their back and forth conversation was darling, including a debate about the logistics of using textured tile to securely hold his coffee mug and what type of markers E should use to personalize the gift.
When I asked if there was a private room for me to nurse a much distracted D, they suggested I use their staff break room. Upon hearing that I was headed that way, a charming gentleman volunteer explained that he needed to get his tea out of the room first. "I'm still nursing too," he joked, "but there is a bit more sugar in mine." I stumbled into a breastfeeding friendly facility with staff that made us feel so welcome!
