Just So shop grows to larger building

Everything's still Just So, but two doors north.

"This place needed to be an antique store, with all its neat little nooks and's perfect for what I have," said Just So craft and sewing shop proprietor Glennys Worden, surveying the former Chosen Valley Threads store, also the former Remnants store. She has relocated her once-little Just So to this building and set things in beguiling order inside the glass-fronted shelves and on the pull-out clothing racks.

Worden's shop offers such a wide variety of items, from the doll clothes she makes for Barbies and American Girl dolls and the sparkly rhinestone jewelry tempting shoppers as they pass the polished glass cases to the handmade scarves, blankets, cloth baskets, soaps, candles, vintage furniture, ceramics, porcelain dolls, vintage dishes and hats, that she quickly outgrew the little shop she opened as a sewing and mending outlet a little over two years ago.

"I moved to a larger location as my little sewing shop got to be too little-I ran out of space there," she said. "This is perfect because I have more and more people wanting to bring things in. I have close to 100 consignees in the store. Some have a little, some have a lot, but here, there's still room for more."

Worden, who began sewing for her children and taking in mending jobs when they were in school, still takes in sewing-mending and alterations keep her sewing machine humming in the back of the new shop-and is glad to have the larger place to line up the queue of projects people bring her, as well as to have a showroom of curiosities that might catch someone's fancy, something they can take home or give to another, something that's just so enchanting.

Just So is open on Chatfield's Main Street from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call (507) 993-3149 or stop in and see Worden.
