Pink Begonia is my perfect store. This collection of glassware, home décor, vintage dolls, clothes, toys, and furniture, presented beautifully as it is in well-balanced combinations and vignettes, strikes my happiest aesthetic chords.
PB offers consignment service, and features several local craftsmen's work in furniture, jewelry, cards, journals, pottery, soap, and textiles. Local paintings and drawings populate the 20-ft walls. There is an adorable section housing "Cuddlebug", clothes, books and toys for babies and small children.
A perfect match was made in my perfect store when Fibre Nut Yarns wove itself into the fabric of the store. "Fibre Nut" by Rosemary Fisher features luxury yarns, but also offers quality affordable varieties.
A full line of sticks, books, patterns, and notions complement the gorgeous yarns. There are also weaving & spinning supplies. Classes held right in Pink Begonia (so you can shop while you learn) and a "knit night" are offered.
PB is open Mon-Sat, 10-5, as are many great retail stores in downtown Kalona. The special needs shopper will find PB and other shops willing to meet by appointment, or assist with shopping by phone or letter request.
