A Touch of Peru in Denville, NJ

Today I joined friends for some late lunch shopping at the Sidewalk Sale in Denville, NJ. One of the shops I always wanted to check out is Bridges Peru , a great little shop with authentic South American items. So, I took a few minutes to check it out. All I can say is WOW!

It is safe to say I could get into some serious trouble in that store. In addition to items such as Yerba Mate, unique and beautiful jewelry and beaded bags, they have baby alpaca yarn, alpaca gloves and hats and beautiful hand-made tapestries! The work is absolutely wonderful and incredibly detailed. The variety of offerings are Bridges Peru is just wonderful! It truly is a great source of cultural education and fiber art inspiration.

I, of course, had to pick up some black alpaca yarn and definitely plan to go back and get a pair of fingerless glove/mitten combos and some Yerba Mate. If you are in the area, I highly suggest you check it out – you will not be disappointed!
