A little reminder

We just wanted to remind you that the date you may begin bringing in your items for the Used Stamp Sale is April 24, which is this Saturday. It would be very helpful if you could wait until the following Tuesday, since we have classes all day on Saturday and our storage space is limited. If you must bring them Saturday that’s ok, too, we will take care of them until the sale.

Hope to see you all soon!

Used Stamp Sale

The Stamper’s Alley 11th Annual Used Stamp Sale is coming up really soon – less than 2 weeks away! So, if you haven’t signed up yet, now is the time. Remember to mark your calendars as well – Saturday, May 1, 10am – 4pm.

I found this coupon in the Walgreen’s ad in Sunday’s paper and thought I’d share it with you. It is in the weekly ad which is in all of their stores as well, so there’s no need to print it from here, just pick up the ad when you go into the store. I thought these reusable bags would be ideal for carrying your purchases home from the sale. We will, of course, have plastic bags available for you but these are more eco-friendly, and you can use them at the grocery store, too! I know I will be buying some. At this price, they are too good to resist.


See you at the sale!


It’s almost that time!

Stamper’s Alley 11th Annual Used Stamp Sale is a little over 3 weeks away – Saturday, May 1! Time to stop procrastinating, get in there and get your craft room in shape. Dust off those previously loved stamps, punches, etc. and make some cash.

If you need more information, click here to download the guidelines. Stop by the shop to sign up and pick up labels for your items. Just a suggestion about pricing – think garage sale prices. One of the main reasons items don’t sell is that they are priced too high.

If you don’t have anything to put in the sale please come and shop! You can find some wonderful bargains on the porch and there will be items on sale inside the store, too. We are having a Make-n-Take and there will even be a few door prizes. It’s always a lot of fun!!

Since this event is so well attended we kindly ask that you don’t bring strollers or small children, it’s just too crowded. When you have finished your shopping on the porch please pay for your items at one of the 3 checkout tables (cash or check only, no credit cards) and take your treasures to the car. Then come inside, do the Make-n-Take, and see what’s on sale!

It would be very helpful if you can bring a large tote bag for bagging up your purchases. The reusable grocery totes work great, they are nice and sturdy  - the better to hold all of those stamps you’re going to want!

So, mark the date – MAY 1, 10am – on red in your calendar and we will see you there!
