I also was able to make it to a shop I'd been looking forward to checking out called Panopolie. I don't think I've ever seen a shop like it. Half of the shop was a normal bead store, but the rest of the shop and so many specialty craft items. Scrapbook items, little glass window boxes, loads of roving, metal working materials, watch parts, charms, vintage watch clasps, keys, and loads and loads of charms. They offer classes and were very helpful. The gal behind the counter's name was Mollie. She was super sweet and said she might come to the show.
I have roving with me on the road, and I've felted a bit, but the roving I bought here inspired me to make these little felted flower headbands. They've made me so happy. I've started posted them on Etsy and I'll be sure to post more soon.
We head to Philadelphia on Monday. I'm sure it will be great, but I'm seriously not looking forward to leaving the 70 degree weather or the Southern hospitality we've enjoyed in Raleigh.
