Summer is coming to an end and Fall is just around the corner. Almost time for all the holidays and festivities to begin, which means it’s a good time to get a jump start on all those holiday projects! We’ve got some great new holiday items in the store now that can help you get started like new Hero Arts Christmas and Halloween stamps, new Autumn themed papers by Imaginisce, and new Christmas Papers for the holidays. There are more fun things that will be arriving soon too, so check the blog for up to date information on our new arrivals.
September Craft Night and Aloha to Donna
Our next Craft Night will be a very special one. Our friend Donna will be leaving us very soon to move to New Zealand and we wanted to give all of our customers a chance to say goodbye. Donna will be at the store for her last Craft Night and we invite you all to join us in bidding her Aloha. Light refreshments will be served and we also have a make ‘n take planned for that night. To participate in the make ‘n take, please sign up to reserve your spot since kits will be limited. The project we’ll be making is this owl treat bag (shown here).
Date: Friday, September 3, 2010
Supplies: Please bring scissor and double stick tape if you have.
We will also be hosting a card drawing again, so please bring in a handmade card if you would like to participate. Even if you didn’t sign up for the make ‘n take, please feel free to stop in to say goodbye to Donna.
We’ve recently received a lot of new stuff, including our long awaited Hero Arts order! Most of them are holiday stamps from the new holiday catalog, but we’ve also re-ordered some favorites from last year. Stop in soon for best selection.
We’ve also received a lot of Christmas and Halloween stuff including punches, stamps, paper, etc. to assist you with all your holiday projects. Some things have already sold out, but we will be placing an order soon, so if you had your eye on something, please inquire at the store if you are interested in a specific product.
Fall Clearance Sale!
You’ve been waiting for it! The Fall Clearance Sale is scheduled for Saturday, September 18th. If you are planning to sell items, you should contact the store soon to see if there are any more open slots. Participants should label all items with removable labels that have your initials, item price, and corresponding number to your master list. A master list should be provided with your items so that the store can confirm prices if needed and you can inventory your items after the sale is done.
Even if you don’t plan on selling anything, don’t miss our sale day for some great bargains! Please bring cash for all rummage sale purchases and come early for best selection. The store will also have some in-store specials for one day only, so take advantage of more great deals on the sale day. We would also appreciate it if you brought your own shopping bag for rummage sale items if possible. Thank you!
A couple of months ago we announced that we would be closing early on Saturdays for the summer. Effective immediately, we will continue to follow this schedule and close at 2:00pm. Please plan accordingly if you plan on shopping on Saturdays. Thank you for your understanding!
