A blog reader who uses the screen name Malia asked last week about a new store in Vinton on N. Pollard Street called Wooly Belle.
I talked with Amanda Bishop, who with her mom Pam Bishop, opened the craft and arts store on Saturday.
The store sells wool for felting and their own work (hairbows, pillowcase dresses, and felted wool items like the doll pictured at left) and the work of other local artisans, including pottery.
The store will also host art/craft classes in stained glass, felting and more.
I’ll have more on the Bishops and their plans in this weekend’s Retail Roundup.
