Make and Take Reminder and Spring Used Stamp Sale Info



We just wanted to remind you about the Valentine's Day Make and Take this coming Saturday - 10am - 1pm, $1.00, and there will be another one next Saturday, same time, same fee, different card! Valentine's Day is less than a month away - time to get started on those cards!

Many of you always look forward to our Annual Used Stamp Sale in the Spring. We would like to take this opportunity to announce the details. Please note the time change - this year we've changed the opening to 8am and closing to 1pm!

We will be renting spaces again this year. All spaces will be manned by you. You will need to bring your own table, chairs, money for change, bags, and any other supplies you might need. We feel this will give you the bargaining power which can be very beneficial for selling your items. Aside from the rental fee for the space, any money you make is yours to keep – Stamper’s Alley does not take a portion of the sales.

We have 9 spaces available on the porch and more in the parking lot.

Space rental fees: 

  • 10’ wide space on the porch - $25
  • 9’ wide space (basically the size of a parking space) in the parking lot - $20
The sale will be held on Saturday, May 6 from 8am until 1pm (rain date is Sat., May 13). Vendors can start setting up as early as they like that morning. Items for sale are limited to craft items only – stamps, inks, punches, dies, paper, etc. – no household items allowed. You are not required to stay until the sale is over, it is entirely up to you how long you stay – but remember there may be some bargain hunters at the last minute and you have the option to offer lower prices on your goods, and maybe make a few more sales! 

As always, we will be doing lots of advertising for this sale. Space is limited, so please do not wait until the last minute to reserve your spot. The space rental fee must be paid at the time the reservation is made, no exceptions. We will accept reservations until April 29. No refunds will be issued after that date

If you feel that you don’t have enough inventory to make it worth setting up a table, why not get together with some friends and share a space? 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call. 704-664-5068, Tues - Fri., 10am - 5pm and Saturday 10am - 4pm. You can also send an email to stampersalley@gmail.com.

Make and Take and New (and old) Lawn Fawn for Valentine's Day


Don't forget everyone mark your calendar to make sure you do not miss our first MITI for the new year.  It is such a sweet Valentine for your "sweet".  It will be Saturday, January 21 from 10am until 1pm.  Listen up, please. We will be starting this year off by charging for our MITIs.  I know, I know. I don't like it either, but to cover a portion of the supplies it is necessary.  They will be $1.
But you really must admit you cannot buy a nice card for $1, especially handmade with Love....
So, drop on by and spread the love!!!
We received an order today from Lawn Fawn.  Lots of new and lots of old, but some really great ones for Valentines. 
































Lawn Fawn is having to say goodbye to some classic stamp sets in order to make room for their growing collection  They are retiring 13 stamp sets and matching dies. If you would like any of these I would be glad to order for you.  But, don't wait they will soon be gone for good.

Happy 2017

We at Stamper's Alley hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The inventory is done, and we are open for business.  Orders are being placed and should be arriving soon.  As you see new designs while online or looking through magazines,  make a list and we will be glad to order for you.
One of the things we are asked about is classes. We are struggling with this. While a few seem interested, not enough people have signed up in the past to make it worth the time to continue preparing them. But, do watch your emails for scheduled Make It Take Its and keep an eye out as there might be a class pop up. Actually, we have our first MITI of the year scheduled for Saturday, January 21st from 10am until 1pm.  It will be a sweet Valentine for that special person in your life.  Be sure and put the date on your calendar.
If you have ANY suggestions for classes, please let us know.
Since we are getting ready for "old man winter" please, call to check and see if we are open if the weather is nasty. Also, check our Facebook page, as we will try to post if we are closed or going to close.

Demo Reminder - Tomorrow - You Don't Want to Miss It!



COME JOIN  US - Saturday, November 19th from 10am - 12pm, for a colorful demo and some tasty refreshments.

Melinda Doster will be demoing some new Impression Obsession backgrounds, using a very unique technique. She will show you how to apply and smoothly blend multiple colors on one large image (something you cannot accomplish with ink pads) using the popular Pan Pastels. You'll not want to miss this fun technique!!

We will have some of the stamps and pastels to sell that day, however, if you need to place an order and you prepay we will offer you a discount of 15%.
We hope to see you then.
