The Semi-Annual Used Stamp Sale is Coming Up!

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.
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 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
  • 9’ wide space (basically the size of a parking space) in the parking lot -$20.
The sale will be held on Saturday, May 3 from 9am until 3pm. Vendors can start setting up as early as they want to that morning. In the case of inclement weather, the sale will be held the following Saturday, May 10. 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 19. No refunds will be issued after April 5, 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, Tues - Fri., 10am - 5pm and Saturday 10am - 4pm.

Impression Obsession Slider Card Class on March 8 - Photos!

We finally have some photos for the Impression Obsession Die Slider Card class on March 8 with Mitra, and they are fabulous!

2014_Die_Slider_Card_Class_2

Die Slider Card – In this class we will explore different techniques to add dimension to Impression Obsession’s exclusive line of steel dies.  We will combine these standalone dies to create scenes and add shading and shadowing and texture with inks and tools.  We will create three slider cards that feature a clever sliding popup to show off your die cut scenes.

There may be a second class offered after the first class, and here are the photos and description for that class. It would probably be from 7:30pm - 9pm or so, and the fee would be $30. We haven’t gotten confirmation from Mitra yet that she will be able to stay for this class, but please email us if you are interested in taking it. If there is enough interest, maybe that will influence her decision :-) Stampersalley@gmail.com

Die Class – In this class we will create four cards focusing on different techniques to add dimension to die cuts. We will create a scene using a white die cut and adding color to it, work with our tiny spiral flowers to create a pretty flower box, sponge some color onto dies for realistic texture and shadowing, use tools to form dies into realistic flowers, and work with various adhesives to achieve that “pop” that make your die cut cards stand out.

All of these cards are so gorgeous and Mitra is a wonderful instructor, we know you will enjoy these classes!
