Haus Tirol, Inc. Williamsburg, Va.
Last week, my daughter was home from James Madison University for her spring break. With college, and a boyfriend, I don't get to spend as much one on one time with her. So, I came up with an idea to go on a road trio, to Williamsburg,Va. We spent the first day there going to the outlet mall and doing some shopping. Checked into the hotel, took a quick nap, and met my oldest son and his "friend," who at driven up from Norfolk to have dinner with us at Carrabas. We then spent the next hour and a half in the Yankee Candle store. That store is the biggest one I have ever seen. Besides candles, they sell all sorts of things. They have a Christmas store, where it actually snows. It is amazing. The next morning we got up, and I pitched to my daughter that they have a cross stitch store that I would like to see. My promise was to spend ONLY an hour at the store, before more shopping and our return to Manassas. The store was run/owned by a mother and daughter. They were both very nice and sweet and also helpful. I walked out within 45 minutes with "The Celtic Band Sampler" by Homespun Samplar, with fabric. Since I have to travel so much with my kids, I always look for cross stitch stores wherever I go, and try to pick up something as a memento. My daughter has no desire to cross stitch, but it was funny that many of the completed works in the store, that my daughter liked, were ones that I already have the charts for. I had a lovely two days with my girl!
