Craft store sales

Dear Fellow Crafters,

If you’ve been anywhere near a craft store lately, you will notice that Fall-themed items are on display as well as Christmas! It seems that retailers are jumping the gun in pushing the seasons at us before we’re ready for them but many of us are delighted anyway.

It’s still to hot to craft in my state but new craft items are making their way onto shelves for our perusal. As for me, although I really wasn’t looking for anything, I found several embossing folders and die cuts along with jewelry items for sale. In one store, the sign boldly stated ” buy one clear, cling, rubber stamp at the regular price, the second is 60% off!”  Who could resist that! Another had 3-D stickers at 50% off  (older ones and newer Christmas ones) and paper stacks at 40% off.

At first I wondered if the store was going out of business or if they weren’t going to sell my favorite items but no, the store clerk assured me, that they were just clearing their shelves. How lucky for us!

Happy Paper Crafting,
