This is where I come for buttons and other haberdashery bits and pieces when I'm in Santarcangelo.

Inside it's an Aladdin's cave, as many older yarn shops are. So many things to spy and look at, although at the same time it means you have to ask for things rather than pick them off the shelf, which is something I still struggle with. 


  She has an amazing selection of buttons and threads and I'm planning to stock up on decent sewing threads in the next couple of weeks, assuming I'm not too late.

I'd like to think that whoever buys the shop keeps it as a yarn shop, but it seems highly unlikely. I'll miss this place.
