An Adorable Little Shop 'Knit1Bead2'

While on our travels through Arizona we happened on a lovely town of Jerome. "America's Most Vertical City" and "Largest Ghost Town in America".
Located high on top of Cleopatra Hill (5,200 feet) between Prescott and Flagstaff is the historic copper mining town of Jerome, Arizona. Once known as the wickedest town in the west, Jerome was a copper mining camp, growing from a settlement of tents to a roaring mining community. Our first lucky strike was a rock and gem shop downtown, where we found several pieces for our collection.
We were directed from there to the higher level to dine at the Haunted Hamburger. We sat at the very end table on the deck outside which has a wonderful view of Jerome and the valley below. I indulged in the giant Haunted Chicken burger, and found it excellent. If you read the cardboard standup thing at the table, it talks of ghostly apparitions, the only apparition in that restaurant was our waitress.
On the way down the steps from the restaurant I happened to glance to the left and there was a lovely little shop called Knit1Bead2. An amazing collection of yarns and beads. I browsed forever, and ended up with a few purchases. They have a website: http://www.knit1bead2.com/
All in all a wonderful excursion through Arizona.
