LYS in Review: Bazaar Girls Yarn Shop
126 Quincy St.
Port Townsend, WA 98368
When we started on this “traveling RN adventure” our first stop was near Seattle. We had an amazing time exploring all of the Pacific Northwest. One of our favourite towns we discovered was Port Townsend.
Port Townsend is located on the Olympic Peninsula. It has a rugged beauty with Victorian houses and a vibrant downtown. One of my best discoveries there is the Bazaar Girls Yarn Shop and Fiber Emporium.
The shop is well stocked with a variety of yarn, most of which I would classify as higher-end. Be Sweet, Sublime, and Debbie Bliss are just a few that come to mind. They also carried locally made yarn and gorgeous fiber for spinning. If you need to brush up on your skills they have an extensive class schedule and everyone in the shop was very welcoming and friendly.
For those traveling with non knitters they do have other locally made items such as jewelry, buttons, etc. If nothing else, they can sit outside and look out on the beautiful view from the shop’s seating area. I very much wanted to come back and knit there but sadly I was only able to make it to the shop once.
Even if you aren’t into yarn Port Townsend is worth the drive. There are beautiful beaches, hand crafted beer, a history museum, and live music. It is a fun stop.
Have any of you been to this shop? What Christmas gifts are you working on right now?
