I walked into quilt works and as soon as I did, one of the employees greeted me! I like that. I had so many questions about different patterns and how long it would take to make, and she was there the whole time answering all of my questions. There are quilts hanging on the walls, and I was asking if they had the patterns for several, and she could go right to them and show me where they were. I like that they also have sewing machines! Nice store. The lighting is so good in there too! You can get a real idea of what the fabric is going to look like together.
This is a nice little quilt store. I went in because it in the same plaza as fly paper. I like that they offer classes! It's nice to be able to go to a quilt store, get your pattern and all the fabric needed in one place. I have not had that happen before. The prices are great also. They beat out some of the major fabric stores price wise, it may cost a bit more, but the quality is so far above the other stores that you can tell your getting more for your money. The staff is very helpful with any question you may have also.
I went to killer designs on the recommendation of some friends who just love the place. Boy oh boy they were so right! it has now become one of the places that I take all my guests that come to town to see me! If your in town, go to killer designs! I love the barbie dolls..They have a contest for altered barbies and they are a hoot! I have yet to walk in there and come out without a purchase that I felt was "just right" They have some amazing beads! They even have the fused glass stuff! Love this place!!
I have just started to use beads in crafts, and it is an easy addiction! I love this bead store, everything is so pretty and organized. She has the bead sorted by size, type and color. It's a dream! I went 3 times in one week. I always find something different in there. I will be going back again in a few days for some of the bigger beads she carries. I was told that the owner has even gone to India to get some of the beads herself. You can tell that the beads are a passion of hers as well.
I love Fred Meyer. This store is so clean, perhaps the cleanest one I I have been in. The deli department is awesome. I have had to run in on my way home to pick up something for dinner and grabbed the roasted chicken and some potato salad. Its become a family favorite! The chickens are so tender, they fall of the bone! I like that fred meyers has an alaska usa bank in it also, and a liquor store! Now if they would just get a post office..we would never have to go anywhere else!
I went into Blaines looking for some plastic bottles. I stayed for an hour! I may be the most un-artistic person on the face of the earth, but Blaine's makes me want to try anyway! This store carries everything! I never knew there were so many cool art supplies. Not just normal paints and brushes! They didn't have the plastic containers I wanted, but they have everything else I didn't know I needed!!
Good karma should have a smell I think..just as bad karma should have a smell, that way we could stay away from things that would give us the bad karma! Good karma smells awesome! I love there soaps and candles. They also have lotions that you can't find anywhere else! This is the best store in town for your bath supplies. There is not bath and body works in Alaska, so Good Karma is the place!! I love the aromatheapy products. The employees are always so helpful too!!
Just saying "pack rat mall" envokes the feeling I get when I go here. This is the first place I look when trying to find old fenton glass! They have all kinds of stuff here. I like the thrill of the hunt at pack rat! Pack Rat has "dealers" which are the people trying to sell there stuff. LOL! I like to think of it as a mini flea market, but a nice one! It is a fun way to spend an afternoon also. Everyone seems to have very good prices, with the occasional over the top price for hard to find pieces.
I called the Alzheimers disease resource agency recently for help due to my fathers alzheimers. I found them to be warm caring people. They have monthy support groups of all types. I'm very happy to have found this place. If somone in your family has this awful disease, please call the resource agency. It was like getting a warm hug over the phone.
Whenever we move to a new town, it's always hard to find a TV station with news that you feel comfotable with. Some of the brodcasts are just silly, with the anchores playing more then reporting news. We like the reporters to be able to talk to each other, but not to a point of distraction. Channel 11's news filled that need for our family! They are fair, not at all one sided as alot of todays media seems to be. They cover all the local areas also. Great station for news!
