Not everything they have in the store is on their online store but they say to email them with what you are looking for because most likely they have it. So please let's keep the LSS in business during this hard time.

I'm with you, I can't by paper sight unseen or from some little picture!

There are 4 LSS for me to patronize at home, and 2 of them have people running it I don't care for (not very customer friendly at all - and I drop some serious money in these stores!) One also is a real hike and has parking issues.

I always try to hunt down an LSS in an area I'm vitising. It just so happened a friend mentioned a place to me Friday evening and, since we weren't going on vaction this summer it seemed like a good weekend warrior, commando shopping trip. It is a get away to a place I enjoy AND I get to support people in their lifestyles.

That was the point of my initial post - tell me the places you know of and/or frequent in the areas I am visiting so I, too, can support those LSSs.

Thanks to all for all for your help. I'll be my shopping route this week, if you know any more feel free to PM or post. Our area to cover is not west of "Lancaster proper" (Dutch Wonderland area), not much north of the PA Pike/Ephrata/Lititz, not much south of Quarryville. (There's only so much a girl can do in a day given store hours!)
