On our Mother-Son college road trip, I teasingly told my son that I only planned to stop at five yarn stores en route to Texas A&M. My 17-year old was not amused. I wish there were that many yarn stores along the way! He was actually quite patient with me when I took the business exit through Navasota so that I could visit WC Mercantile.
Navasota is a small town with just over 7,000 residents. It’s downtown is lined with quaint historic buildings that house antique and other local shops. It was a cold and rainy day so I headed straight to WC Mercantile located on East Washington Avenue. And what a delight it was!
WC Mercantile has a wonderful selection of yarns for the knitter or crocheter and a large space devoted to luscious fibers and spinning wheels. I went straight for their local yarns spun from Texas Alpacas.
Love these project bags!
The owner was very nice and helpful. She was at a table teaching a customer to knit. This is why I love local yarn stores.
In the back of the store, they had a cute little Christmas tree on which hung sheep ornaments and these. Too cute!
In addition to yarn and fibery stuff, I couldn’t resist these cards. They look like original watercolors. I particularly like the one on the left. No grannies here!
Navasota is about 45 minutes north of Houston. I am looking into one of their day-long wheel spinning classes. It would be a nice getaway from the city. If you are ever in the area, stop by and enjoy a few hours of all things fiber!

What a really wonderful store. I would spend hours there. 🙂
I also love the project bags. Not to mention perfect gifts.
It was charming. The owner was lovely and helpful. I was so tempted to get one of the project bags but i have too much “stash” already!
I like the ´Christmas ornament with yarn inside!
Isn’t it adorable! The skeins are so tiny and they used nice toothpicks for the needles.
My daughter is a knitter and spinner and I follow her to many, many yarn shops and yarn events. I enjoyed your post a lot. If I may be forward here I’d like to send you a link to her blog.. http://www.knittingscholar.com/
Thanks for the link. I’ll take a look!
What a great yarn shop. That ornament! Even himself laughed out loud.
The ornament is too cute.
What a wonderful store. I always make for the wool shop/yarn store in any new town wherever I am. 🙂
I do love finding these gems in different places.
