Now, I really support the idea of buying local, so that all those cute little shops will stay open. But I don't really believe in supporting local businesses at any cost. I mean, there are a lot of fabric/yarn/craft stores, both big and small in the greater Portland metro area. I could just as easily go to one of the warehouse type stores, but the advantage of the small shops is supposed to be customer service & better quality products. Well, I was in the very small shop for about fifteen minutes, and the sales girl never even acknowledged my existence. Admittedly she was helping a mom and some kids pick out fabric for a costume, but they were also discussing their plans for the holidays so it wasn't like they needed her undivided attention. At one point she walked by me - like not more than 18 inches away, and didn't even look at me. I'm sorry, but that's just rude. I don't need a lot of hand holding when I shop, but I think they should at say "Hi" or "I'll be with you in a moment." So I left, and went to one of the warehouse stores, where I might add, I got excellent customer service.
They had lots and lots of buttons, a few of which would have worked. I couldn't quite decide, between these two sets. So I got them both.
Which buttons should I use for my cardigan?
