Wow! After months of planning our little mobile shop is making its rounds! We have had such a great response from local artisans and craftsman as we build a network of cottage industry suppliers to be vendors for our shop. We are carrying various merino and alpaca yarns, hand-made ceramic buttons and alpaca ornaments, goats milk soaps and of course, alpaca toys. Our shelves also hold felted and woven scarves, alpaca socks and gloves, knitting supplies and looms. Other popular items include sassy, Southern-style shirts and trendy jewelry, including some hand-made alpaca, merino and ram scarf stick pins. Many of these items are one of a kind and can't be restocked. So in the true sense of the word, our little haberdashery is just that--an eclectic mix of goods, very reminiscent of the old time General Store. I guess I am old-fashioned in that I like the business model where local farms had an opportunity to sell their goods to the Dry Goods store for the surrounding area to benefit and enjoy.
