Our new store!

Yesterday I took a tour of the new store & now that I see it
empty, I see SO many more possibilities!  I cannot wait to show you
all!  The classroom is beyond huge!  And the store is so
fresh & new!  But don't forget, we'll still be in our current location through the end of the year.  We'll keep you posted on moving dates.  We're planning on opening the new store on January 2nd. 

The new store has wonderful slat wall around the entire perimeter.  That
means we'll be selling some of our fixtures...peg boards, spinning
racks...things that would work well in your home craft room.
 
I don't know which ones for sure yet, but if you come by the current
store, we can put your name on the items & let you know if they go
up for sale.  (Sorry, but we won't be selling paper racks.)  I
have 7 years worth of accumulated baskets, fixtures, and well, just
stuff, that we'll be selling too.  You just never know what
treasures you'll find!  I'm pretty certain there will be some
lockers for sale :)

With the new store comes a re-vamped class schedule.  It'll
be just 2 months at a time.  Some things will be pretty
consistent:  All Day Crops on the last Saturday of the month,
Midnight Madness every Friday, Saturday Crops the 2nd Saturday of the
month.  Other things will change for the better.  Classes will
be offered twice a month, usually a Saturday & a weekday. 
We're adding Tuesday morning classes and $1 make-n-takes on
Thursdays.  My mom will be teaching a paper crafting class (that's
what she loves to do!).  We've added a Teen Night & kids class,
too.  Can't attend a class?  You can still purchase the
kit.  Kits will include printed instructions with photos, as well
as the class materials.   I'll have a class calendar for January
& February at the end of next week.

  1. Congratulations on the move! My husband thinks I'm nuts because I read
    your email and got so excited for you. In a time when so many small
    businesses are closing or cutting back, it is good to see my favorite
    scrapbook store expanding!!

  3. Hi Kirsten and Andi,
    We are so excited that you will be moving to a much better store and
    location. Next time we come up to Flag we will definitely be stopping
    by to see the new store. I'm sure all of your customers will all enjoy
    taking classes in the new large classroom. Again, congratulations.
