Hey, all!  I'll be vacationing in Boulder in July, and I'd love to visit some awesome thrift stores or craft supply stores!  And actually, any other not-to-be-missed places that I need to know about -- I'll take those too.  Grin

Haha... Funny you should mention that -- I'm just learning to crochet, but so far I've  been able to avoid compulsively buying yarn.  Perhaps this will change that.  Wink  I'll look into them, thanks!

Handily in the same shopping center as Shuttles is Savers, a large thrift shop. I rather like the Humane Society thrift shop in east Boulder on Arapahoe, and you might as well pop into the Hospice thrift shop next door while you are there. The Humane society one tends to have some nice fabrics and craft stuff.

This may be a bit late, since July is almost near an end! But just in case anybody else is ever vacationing in Boulder and looking for a Thrift store, check out the Salvation Army. I was astonished by how good this thrift store was- I found dozens of clothing re-construction treasures for under $20. It's a couple of blocks north down 33rd from Arapahoe, not the easiest place to find if you don't know where it is.
