We have had lots of calls for Adirondack Color Washes. This is an acid-free, non-toxic, water-based dye developed for use on paper, fibers, fabric and more. So ladies, here you go! We have Lettuce, Butterscotch, Cranberry, Denim, Espresso, Meadow, Purple Twill, Red Pepper, Sailboat Blue, Stream, Sunset Orange, & Wild Plum.

For the lovers of the Versafine inks we now have Crimson Red, Imperial Purple, Vintage Sepia, Deep Lagoon, and Majestic Blue, as well as black.  The Versafine inks are a quick dry opaque pigment. They give finer details and quality impressions every time!

We also have lots of new, Spring colors of May Arts ribbon! No photos, so you’ll just have to stop in and see for yourself.

Big News About the Annual Used Stamp Sale

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 new program we are implementing this year. 

We will be renting spaces this year. All spaces will be manned by you. You will need to bring your own table (we have some 3’ x 6’ tables for rent for use on the porch), 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 at the sale is yours to keep – Stamper’s Alley does not take a portion of the sales.

We have 9 spaces available on the porch, and 16 in the parking lot. We can’t take up all of the parking lot with tables because we have to leave somewhere for the shoppers to park.

Space rental fees:

  • 10’ wide space on the porch - $25 (space only)
  • 10’ wide space on the porch plus one 3’ x 6’ folding table - $30
  • 9’ wide space (basically the size of a parking space) in the parking lot - $20. (You must furnish your table and/or tent)

The sale will be held on Saturday, May 4 from 10am until 3pm. In the case of inclement weather, the sale will be held the following Saturday, May 11. Items for sale must be 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 through April 20. No refunds will be issued after April 6, unless we rent that space to someone else before the deadline.

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, Wed – Fri., 10am – 5pm and Saturday, 10am – 4pm.
