Give and Receive

The weekend is over and we survived our After Thanksgiving sale. We are still offering our paper sale aisle - 50% off and new papers are being added almost everyday. We also have a couple of tables with merchandise marked down 75% off. These specials are for a limited time as any remaining products are being donated to Joe Dimaggio Children's Hospital. For those of you that may have been out of town, we have come up with some other ways to save on your scrapbooking supplies this month. How would you like to get a 40% discount off one item just for giving a toy? We are going to be collecting toys to help support the Marines Toys for Tots Foundation this year. Here's how it works: bring a new unwrapped toy to the store and receive a 40% discount off one item that you purchase that day.
The December class calendar is now available in the store and it wil be available on the website later today. We haven't scheduled a Midnight crop this month but if we get enough interest, Nina volunteered to work it. If you are interested in cropping, the available dates would be December 13th or the 20th (both dates are Saturdays). Call the store with your preferable date today.
Have you seen these cute advent calendar boxes from Karen Foster? The vendor sold out of these and didn't have enough time to get a reorder. If you are looking for one, we have three left!! Get them before they're gone!
Looking for a fun and funky paper line to scrap your holiday memories? We are expecting the 'Life at the Pole' collection from Sassafras Lass any day. It's a winter collection dream come true!
Haven't done your scrapbook holiday cards yet? We have a solution for you... Bring in your family pictures and Lisa Orr of Scrapbook to Share will be here on Sunday, December 7th and she can assist you in turning your scrapbook page into your holiday card. Bring your address book along and you can start addressing envelopes right away. Lisa will have your cards ready by the next day. We'll have Show and Tell with samples in the store. Jewish scrappers that means you too because Chanukah starts 21st of December.

Did you solve the cropscene mystery?

Well the EK Success, Martha Stewart, K & Company and Inkadinadoo sponsored Crop Scene Investigation Customer Appreciation Day and Crop has come and gone and it was a total success. Our deputy crafters were sharing clues and hints to find the suspects, while others were cropping and doing make-n-takes. Clues, you wonder, yes - each person that registered for the event here received clues to help detain the suspects and solve the case. We even caught this deputy crafter in the act and immediately detailed her for questioning. We also wanted to mention that our croppers and customers helped us donate just under $500.00 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure by attending our Scrappink crop and buying raffle tickets. This a huge contribution to a very important cause and we thank each person who contributed.
Many of you have been asking for details about our After Thanksgiving Storewide sale. Well we're not going to spill the beans just yet, because is will spoil the surprise. The sale runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving. Keep checking here for updates...

These new products came in this week from Doodlebug Design - Nina can't wait to use the valentine line, but she needs to finish our christmad projects first.

Finally we will be posting our December calendar this week so be on the lookout for it.
