LYS Trip Gone Bad

I went to two of my LYSs today in search of the new Rebecca Baby & Kids magazine, the Debbie Bliss Cashmere Collection book, and size 0 dpns. Let me tell you right away that I do not impulse shop in yarn stores. I always have a list of what I'm looking for and rarely buy items not on the list. So I was disappointed to find the first store had not received either of the books and was out of the needles. I went home and found the next store on my list which carries the Rebecca magazines and tried to call them. I got a wrong number and several busy signals. I decided to go ahead and try this place anyway. I'd found the store listed on several sites with the same address and phone number, so I didn't think there'd be any problem finding it. We sat in rush hour traffic for nearly an hour just to discover that the store no longer exists. So, if you are one of the few knitters who goes to the LYS for a certain item and is not really interested in browsing learn from my mistakes. Always call ahead to find if your item is in stock and if you can't reach the store by phone, make absolutely sure it still exists before you try to shop there.
