It's true! Whether you want to start planning for the winter holidays, graduation, a birthday, a promotion, an anniversary, retirement, or any other special occasion, you can create a wish list that stays on file at the shop.
How do I start a wish list? Our register software is amazing - it runs your customer cards, your purchase history, payment plans for equipment... but it also has the capacity to keep a wish list on file for you. You can put specific items from the shop on your list, or you can ask us to add something that we can special-order for you. Just let us know when you come in, send us an email, or give us a call and we'll add items of your choice to your list. It could be yarn... interchangeable hooks or needles... a loom... a drop spindle... basically anything that you'd love to have show up! As items get purchased from your list, they will disappear so nothing will get bought in duplicate.
How do I access it? Get in touch with us and we'll be happy to print or email you a copy.
How can people make purchases from my wish list? Have them get in touch with us!
What if there's an expensive thing on the list that people want to pool money for? We can absolutely set up a multi-person payment option for anything on your list. All they have to do is ask. (Please note that we won't ship or release the item for pick-up until it is entirely paid for; special orders need to be paid in full before we are able to order them.)
Do I have to pick things up? Or does the person ordering have to pick things up? Nope! We're happy to accommodate those options, of course, but we can also ship items, call the recipient on your behalf and let them know they have a surprise waiting, or just about anything else.
Can I surprise someone? Absolutely. Just let us know when you make the order and we'll conspire with you for the best possible surprise in the format that works best for you and them.
