Down the Aisles and Around the Corners

We’ve had the Webcam up for over a year now, and it has been fun to give you a glimpse into all things Loopy. But of course the Webcam only gives you a little peek into one part of Loopy. This place is big, and there is a lot more to see than what comes across on the Webcam! So today I thought I’d share some pictures with you of the parts of Loopy that aren’t visible on the camera. (Or – here’s a better idea – come visit us in person and explore the nooks and crannies yourself! Even more fun!)

We finally got our sign up on the building. Isn’t Loopy cute up there? He’s pretty proud of himself. He likes it best at night when he gets to be “in lights”. (I know that lighted signs don’t photo well at night, but you get the idea.)

When you walk in the door, this is what you see looking left – the Loopy sign that you can see on the Webcam, plus colorful yarn temptations straight ahead. Looking right – the checkout counter and the Packing Station where we wrap up all of your orders and get them shipped out. You can see one side of the Packing Station on the Webcam. There is always someone else (or two) packing orders on the other side that you can’t see, too.

 

Here’s what it looks like after you’ve walked all the way in and turned around to the door you just walked in. Also, please note Herman in the corner. That’s where he hangs out.

The first row (you can see down that on the Webcam) is the Worsted aisle. Doesn’t that Cascade wall look colorful? And the Stonehedge Fiber Shepherd’s Wool on the right?

The next aisle over has our Sport/DK weights and all of the needles. People spend a lot of time in that row, contemplating needle choices.

After that comes an aisle with Fingering weights and Lace weights. You’ll also catch a lot of pretty bags up on the tops of the shelves, as well as knitted shawls, hats and scarves further down.

And then the row opposite the long wall of windows, with more fingering weight. (We have tons and tons of sock yarn, although you all use the yarn just as often for shawls.) Plus bins and bins of extra yarn. In case we run out. :-)

At the very back of the store, we have more sock yarn, more fun bags, roving, our Hadley Pottery line, and a table for classes. (And my office is behind the wall with that Loopy sign on it.)

Finally – the Loopy Elf Break room (where we all eat lunch). Aren’t those yarn-bucket-lights fun? Ikea.

Do you feel like you’ve had a good virtual visit? We’ll keep doing the personal shopping for your online orders, but do come visit in person if you ever get the chance!

We have winners from last week’s blog contest. A big congratulations to Retha in CT and Paula in IA. Both of you have won a $25 credit at The Loopy Ewe, which we’ve added to your account, ready for spending when you find something fun you’d like! Thanks to everyone who participated. We’ll do another contest sometime this month.

Have a blessed Easter Weekend!

  1. The new space really looks gorgeous – and those breakroom lights are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!

    Maybe one of these days I’ll make it out to Colorado to see the new location. I’m just glad I was able to go a couple of times when you were still in St. Louis!

  2. Heaven on earth! I’m planning my visit at the end of July during my Colorado vacation. Hoping to make it to the Thursday night Knit Night!

  3. Thanks for the tour. I had been wondering what some of the yarns are that we can see in the webcam. I knew it would be too much to ask Webguy to program the camera so that the brand of yarn would pop up as we drag our mouse across the photo. I was wondering what the pastels were that are left & right of the big red sock blocker. I DO need a trip to CO, but I am REALLY trying to catch my knitting up to my purchasing.

  4. Just like I remember it! I was supposed to come see Loopy this week, but that work stuff crowded Loopy right out. :-( Tell us more about the possibility of classes, please. You said you had a table…

  5. Looks like paradise to me!!!

    If i worked there, I wouldn’t take a paycheck home – I’d be spending it all on YARN.

    I so hope Frank and I can make a trip out there – I’m dying to turn him loose on the sock yarn!

  6. me want to go to there….. does anyone ever throw all the new yarn on the floor and just roll around in it? yeah that would be good. your shop is a beautiful wonderland, I have not seen anything like it – wish you were in San Diego CA!

  7. Groan, Groan, grrroannnn
    Sheri, what are you doing to us.
    This is sheer torture ! ! ! ! ! !

    How wonderful everything is looking

    Thanx for the tour, I ♥♥♥ it.

    hugs

  8. I love LOVE love the tour, I will so very much miss visitng TLE when I visit dd in STL, but I’m so happy for you in your new place. Would it be possible to post a photo sometime of where TLE started? I seem to remember seeing a photo from long, long ago, in a distant galaxy of the yarn corner in your basement (when Lime and Violet first turned me into a Loopy Groupie)

  9. Great tour! I do feel like I’ve been there!

    Love all the windows…especially by the packing area. The wall of Cascade is simply impressive.

    Maybe one day I can make the 2,022 mile trek.

  10. And you used to do this out of your home at one time – from that to this? Amazing! And I’m still loving your Loopy!

  11. This isn’t heaven on earth – I think it is the ACTUAL heaven!!!!

    I have the same impulse as Sheri to just roll around in all the yarn – or hug it – or eat it!!! It is just so deliciious looking.

    The space is gorgeous – huge and gorgeous. I don’t have any plans to be out your way (I’m in New York) so I really appreciate the vicarious experience this virtual tour provided.

    Thank you and have a wondeful holiday!!!

  12. Thanks for the beautiful, tour. It all looks so tempting and inviting. I wish I still lived in CO so it would be easy to visit. Maybe someday…

  13. Charlottesville, Virginia would be a great spot for an East Coast “Loopy Ewe”, don’t you think?????
    Well, if you every decide to spread out, keep us in mind!

  14. Thank you…..and….WOW!!!! I’ve been wondering what lay beyond the vision of the Loopy Cam. So much more than my little mind could imagine! WOW! that is the only word I can spit out right now…wow…

  15. OOOOOOOO Look at all that Beautiful Yarny Goodness!!!!!!
    Thanks for the tour.
    Visiting the Loopy Ewe is #1 on my Bucket List! Weeelll maybe #2 after visiting Alaska. Although I could visit Loopy on my way to Alaska but then I probably wouldn’t be able to afford to go to Alaska if I did that.

  16. Beautiful shop full of beautiful yarn. I can’t wait to visit when we vacation in Colorado in July! Thanks for the $25. Prize…so fun to be a winner

  17. Oooooh! I so want to visit! Better yet, I want to be a Loopy Elf! Love love love the look of the store and all of the yarn goodness! Awesomeness abounds!!!

  18. Thank you for the virtual tour…I am so impressed at how you moved your business and (by the looks of it) made it even bigger and better. Congrats. Have enjoyed every item ever ordered and would love to visit in person someday!
    Trish

  19. I am excited that I will be coming to Denver next month for my nephew’s graduation and confirmation and have already made it known that I would like to get to your shop. I can’t wait!

  20. I’m glad the sign is up – I think co-workers thought I’d made up the yarn shop. It will be nice to be able to point out external evidence to them.

  21. I will be there in June!!!!!! Can’t wait to see Loopy West! And you too Sheri…..and the Elves…..and hoping for some Fling news soon…….

  22. If I worked there…I would be found most of the time lying in a yarn bin rubbing the soft wool to my cheeks and whispering ahhhhhhhh…..don’t laugh..you all would too! LOL
    Congrats ladies…beautiful!!!!

  23. Thanks so much for the tour. It looks so nice there. I hope to visit some day. My question is, how do you get anything done for petting all that pretty yarn? Seems it would be a problem for me. So much to pet, so little time. :-)

  24. Thank you for showing your wonderful new shop! It is beautiful! I have been hoping that you would give us a virtual tour soon. I don’t even know when we might manage a real trip to Colorado. It is beautiful country, especially in the summer time! :-)

  25. Doh! The webcam! Now I’m terrified as to what the world has seen of my kids running a muck in the front area as mommy runs into to get those missing needles!
