In my ongoing quest to bring inspiration to your day; Sparklefly Candle Company has reached out to some other amazing entrepreneurs to share their stories and products. As always, I encourage you to explore these small business owners with me and remember to shop small this holiday season and all year round.

Today I am sharing with you one of the very first stores to stock my products. I had heard about Rumpelstiltskin Yarns for a long time from my sister. She raved about their store and service and glowed about their classes. I had heard about how they grew from a small shop to an impressive corner shop on Main Street in Sayville, NY. Then, to their second store in Stony Brook, NY. Knowing that my sister was an avid knitter, at first I did not really comprehend all that this store has to offer, until I walked in and fell in love.
It was very easy to understand how this business grew and expanded their loving following of "Rummies". As soon as I met the owner, Angela D'Aguanno, I had first hand experience of her welcoming and bright personality, her love and appreciation for her customers and her eagerness to provide stellar customer service. Every single person that walked in to the store received her personal attention, vast knowledge and exceptional service. They left happy and satisfied and you can see how they appreciate it through her FaceBook following and how locals speak of this store.
They recently expanded again with a grand opening of their Huntington, NY location, where you can find Mr. Vin spinning in the front window while enjoying his home baked cookies during a scheduled class. It may seem like a knitter's dream but there's so much more going on inside.
The walls are lined with gorgeous gifts for the home, handbags, home fragrance and accessories.
They offer the most amazing classes (like the one above, HOW CUTE?!) at every location. Their Rummies rave about them and whenever I have stopped in during a class, it has been packed with smiling faces. But they don't stop there, they excel at providing you the best experience by offering what they call Knit or Crochet Dr. This is a form of extra help offered at no charge to their students. You can come during these scheduled hours and have your project "healed" by the Knit Doctor. How amazing is that?
Certainly, you can expect to find the most luxurious yarns in all the colors of the rainbow and from a variety of sources. A yarn maven's paradise.
Of course, I couldn't leave out the grand display of Sparklefly Sparkle Stones on display for sale. Makes my heart flutter to see it and be part of such a respected and loved store. I encourage you to stop by any one of the 3 locations and see for yourself.
