First let me say thank you to all the vendors and shoppers who came out Saturday for our second annual used stamp yard sale.  We had a great turnout, great sales, and a wonderful Make-n-Take. If you missed it, be sure to mark your calendar for the next one, which will be held on the first Saturday in May, 2014.

I would also like to thank each and every one of you for being so patient, thoughtful, and concerned while I have been recuperating from my back surgery. Thank you for all the cards and well wishes. I must say things have gone very well thus far. That being said, beginning October 1st we will be open Tuesday – Friday 10-5, Saturday 10 - 4, and closed Sunday & Monday. We will see how it goes and hope to be able to continue those hours into the coming months.

The Envelope Punch Board is back in stock!
Now it’s even easier to create custom envelopes in over 60 different sizes with any size paper. By eliminating the need to trim and measure the paper multiple times, the Envelope Punch Board is the easiest-to-use envelope maker in the industry. To use, simply select the envelope size, trim the paper once, and follow the grid printed on the board to punch the envelope notches. Finally, score and fold the envelope using the included bone folder, which is conveniently stored on the Envelope Punch Board itself. For an extra touch, round each corner of the envelope using the punch located on the opposite side of the tool.
