Well, I had this same experience 2 days ago, when I visited "Die Mercerie" in Munich for the first time, to meet my dear "internet" friend Marcia there, whom I knew from Ravelry...
(We had tons of fun while chatting, knitting, enjoying our coffe and admiring all the goodies... all without ever leaving this heavenly place)!
Do you know this sensation? When it's cold and grey outside and you step into a warm and beautiful shop full of soft, cozy, beautifully coloured yarn... the moment when the door behind you shuts and you stop in utter wonder and amazement - feeling like a kid in a candy shop!
I was blown away by the sheer amount of luxurious yarn on display! Even the tiniest corner of this sunny shop had something wondrous to see, touch and admire....
... the little shop is filled with loveliness displayed in the most beautiful way ....
"Die Mercerie" has so much to offer: not only the gorgeous choice of famous yarns from every corner of the world, cute buttons and tools, but it also serves the best Latte Macchiato and tasty cakes here in Munich....
... and that's the best idea ever: a beautiful yarn shop with a friendly and convivial atmosphere, where you not only buy the most gorgeous tools of the trade but also have lots of fun using them. Right there on the spot!!!!
This is a blog about knitting stuff - patterns and the like (the therapeutic part will come after diving into the needles... promise!)
