I recently had a similar disappointing shopping trip at (likely) the same LYS. I went in looking for fingering weight yarn. It had to be purple, and I wanted some sort of exotic fiber. I was willing to pay more for a cashmere/angora/alpaca/something soft and scrumptious blend. I was willing to go up to about $20/skein. They only had 2 purple fingering weight yarns in stock (even with the awesome sock yarn section) and didn't have anything "exotic" in fingering weight. I ended up buying a $5 skein of cheap sock yarn instead.

I also don't understand their layout. I like the sock yarn section, but I can't find anything else in the whole store without asking someone to show me.

I'll make another suggestion - you can search Etsy by location. So if you want a local small producer that might not be carried at your local yarn store, Etsy might help you without taking too much research time.
