Dave and I knew that a new yarn shop, Mrs. Hudson's Yarns and Teas, had opened in the Fairhaven neighbourhood of Bellingham, and on the weekend we got a chance to check it out. The store is named for a character in the Sherlock Holmes stories, which is an interesting coincidence given that I've been reading Laurie R. King's novels in which Holmes is a main character.
The store is quite large, and simply but carefully furnished. I loved the framed knitting-related vintage magazine covers.
Below you can see a jewelry box being used to display shawl pins - one of many cool little display ideas.
There is a comfortable and well-lit area in which to settle down for some knitting. Dave made himself at home while I explored books and notions.
The back of the shop is all about tea. Their selection is all imported from the UK.
I wish Callie, the owner, success with her new venture. Bellingham seems to be willing to support its local yarn stores - I believe this is the fifth one in the town of about 80,000.
