We want to let all of you know that Walt and I have made the painful decision to close our store, The Stamp Addict. It was a rough decision, one we have prayed about for several months, but the numbers do not support us keeping our store open. With the changing industry and more and more people shopping online, it no longer makes sense for us to fight this battle.
I know that many of you have spent time in our store, taking classes, supporting our amazing selection of teachers, supporting our store by shopping here, and supporting me. You have all helped me achieve my dream of creating a store where everyone has fun, is welcome to be creative, and just spend time here crafting and making friends.
I feel like I have made many, many, many great friends. Thank you, all of you, for sharing your creative spirits with us on this fun filled adventure.
When we bought the store, I had a vision of how it would look. A spot for ladies, and some gentlemen, to come in, create, chat, and build relationships while we craft. That vision has been far surpassed by the reality. The friendships that have been built here will last a lifetime — friends that share our hearts, our successes, our losses, and so much laughter and sometimes tears. Together, we have all grown, learned, and become better friends, better wives, better parents, and better people overall. Our discussions have covered every topic, nothing has been off limits, and we have all learned so much from each other.
The people we have met will forever be in our thoughts, our hearts, and our prayers.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our journey here. I am grateful for your sharing, your advice, your time, and your energy that you have given to us.
Our last day at the store will be Sunday, August 26. We will be having various sales over the next several weeks to clear all of our merchandise, fixtures, racks, etc
Walt & Roxanne
