We would like to thank everyone who came and worked to make our semi-annual yard sale such a success! We had a wonderful group of “volunteers” who helped us unpack, helped our customers find treasures, and then pack it all back up each evening. The yard sale was a huge success, just under 300 “shoppers” came and found new treasures to take home and add to their collections. We could not do this without your help.
Donations from this yard sale will be going to Easter Seals, 5 different teachers here locally who teach special needs students and can use these items in their classrooms, and to Children’s Rady hospital, where they use the items to make scrapbooks so that visiting family members can see what the patients do on special outings, holidays and events. Thank you to everyone who so graciously donate their unsold items to these children.
WOW, it is already Labor Day weekend, which lets us know that summer is almost over, and we can start to look forward to the colors of fall. We also have so much more to look forward too. We have been working on a BIG surprise for everyone, we are excited to let everyone know that we have Fran Seiford, founder, owner, designer and all around amazing crafter from Stampendous will be coming to our store Nov.5th. Fran is just the sweetest and most creative person ever! She has not taught in stores in many years, so we are extremely honored that she has chosen our store. She will be doing a couple of demo’s in the morning that day, and then a hands on workshop in the afternoon. She also has a new embossing technique book that we have for sale in the store that she will autograph for you. Sign up now, we know this will sell out – we are still working out some of the details, so we have an “i am interested list” for both the demo’s and the workshop.
We hope that you all have a wonderful labor day weekend, I know that I am going to be doing a lot of crafting on Monday, creating some new card and technique ideas to share with all of you. I can see the messy dining room table from here – or should i say “creative space” that I am setting up with stamps, dies and pastes just waiting and calling my name…
Have a blessed week, and we hope to see you soon!
