Finally Friday Sale! The Paving is Finished Sale!

Lydia and Rod are having a lovely vacation in the Berkshires this week.  Perfect weather!  Taking in historical sites!  Drives in the country!

Connie and I keep playing at the store in spite of the fact that it has been almost impossible to get there all week.  The DOT finished paving yesterday so the cones and trucks and equipment are GONE at last!  There's a beautifully paved new entrance from Main Street into our parking lot.  Come check it out!

New products arrived yesterday from Hero Arts including 3-packs of mini misters and some absolutely beautiful clear stamps sets.  All of the clear stamps have moved to the white triangle rack since we now have sooo many in.  New products also are on the shelves from Penny Black--new wood stamps include lots of words and some really cute images and some gorgeous stickers.

Can't you just imagine one of these with a scrap of printed paper on a lovely Memory Box card?!  Easy Peasy!

I can't even imagine what Connie will put on sale today!!!  She is sooo relieved for the paving to be done with that almost anything is possible!  Give her a call or better yet stop by and pick up some good deals.  Today and tomorrow are the last two days of our fabulous Cat's Away sale.  Bargains galore!!!

Remember that we are closed on Monday for Memorial Day.

The Sale Goes On! 10 to 1 today! Closing at 1 PM!

Hmmm....the 27th you say...Yes, I am away that day, so I guess it's okay for you to play.

Anne's at the shop today from 10 to 1.  (Closing at 1 to take Mom to the doctor.)
Rumor #1:   is that they will be paving out front over the huge hole they dug recently. I think you can still find a way to get in.
Rumor #2: is that Robyn is coming in to the shop around 10 this morning before she starts packing up the van for the BIG MOVE--she and her husband are leaving for California on Sunday.

The SALE for today is STICKERS at 30% off!

They're at it again! Huge Cat's Away Sale all week! New Memory Box stamps in!!!

Connie mans the store today.  I have no idea what her daily sale item will be.  I guess I'll have to wait until 10 and call her to find out!

We got our latest Memory Box order yesterday.  The little brown bags of pre-ordered stamps are lined up behind the counter and waiting for you!  We also got in some stamps that we haven't had before:
Butterfly Stem D1040 page 7
Butterfly Collage  E1060 page 7
Sm. Vintage Flower AA221 page 12
Flower Bucket B419 page 14
and some word stamps...

We have restocked some of the Garden Journal stamps, too, including Poppy Collage and Dill Print, and we got in more of the Garden Cutaway and Damask Butterfly for those of you who loved the white embossed samples and bought up all of the first ones.  We have white embossing powder in and tiny Top Boss Emboss pads.

There are some new markers in for those of you who like to color your stamps before printing them.  These are four coordinating colors to a box in four different sets.  We're experimenting with these to see how people like them.  I'll be using them in classes for awhile and taking orders then.  They are similar to Tombow pens or LePlume markers and are made by Tsukineko, my favorite pen company.

Please come in to shop this week and save while Lydia is away!

We are expecting the new Memory Box Garden Journal Collection later this week!  You are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE these birds and blooms stamps!  And there is also a new paper collection in 6X6 and three new 12X12s on the way from Memory Box!

Other new products in:

Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels along with stamps, chip tiles, and some great tags to mist, stamp, and embellish

New ribbons in dots and brightly colored puzzle pieces

a new Christmas-themed two-sided 12X12 paper and coordinating 6X6 pad

more Dew Drop size inks from Memento

tiny Top Boss Embossing Pads

from Stampendous--Christmas Ornament and Peacock shiny stickers; Bunnies in the Snow wooden stamp; round Christmas saying wooden stamp; cling stamps in an ice cream cone theme; a squirrel wooden stamp; and one other wooden stamp that looks like a hole torn in paper (I'll be doing a class using this stamp sometime in June)

I'm sure there is more that I am forgetting!  Keep checking this blog for updates!

Happy Stamping!
