If you have never been to our outdoor Used Stamp Sale you have been missing out on some of the best bargains of the year. The sale starts at 9am, Saturday, May 2nd.  There will also be wonderful sales inside along with a very nice $1 Make & Take. Extra kits of the Make & Take will be available for purchase, too.
We just saw the weather forecast for Saturday and it is going to be a perfect day - sunny  and 76 degrees.  So, come on out and enjoy the day with all of the "Alley Cats" (the name my brother Pete gave to my stamping friends :) ).

We have some new Echo Park Sunshine Collection in stock!

Update on Brenda, and Dies from Memory Box and PoppyStamps

Brenda had back surgery today and we are happy to report that the surgery went well. She is in a room, a little groggy but doing well, and is expected to be able to go home early next week. If you would like to send a card, you can send it to the shop and we will make sure she receives it - 130 W. Plaza Dr., Mooresville, NC 28117.

Dies from Memory Box and PoppyStamps, some new, some re-stocked:

Reminder - The Used Stamp Sale is Coming Up Soon!

Our Semi Annual Used Stamp Sale - Saturday, May 2, 2015

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 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.

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 2 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 9. 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 until April 18. No refunds will be issued after April 7, 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 Monthly Die Program

We thought you'd like to see the beautiful cards made with the dies from the March program.

Classes and Brand New Items

There are still some spots left in Harriet's Envelope Punch Board class tomorrow, Thursday, 4-9 and Saturday, 4-18. This is a class that has been requested many times and you will be amazed at how easy it is to use the Punch Board for envelopes and other things, as well. Don't miss this opportunity!

There are also a few spots left in Dani's Masculine Lawn Fawn card class coming up this Saturday afternoon at 1pm. The cards are delightful and perfect for many occasions.

There are spots available in Melinda's Rubber Stamp Tapestry class, too. I realize the class is in June, but you know how fast time flies. Melinda is a great teacher and this class is going to be so much fun.  By the way, we will be holding the class at the Holiday Inn Express. Sign up soon - you don't want to miss this one!

Check the Class Schedule for more information on these and other classes.

Today we received our beautiful sample cards from Impression Obsession for the March die Program.  Be among the first to receive these new Spring dies.

Our Daily Bread Designs is new in our shop! Our first order was very, very small but at least we have our foot in the door. If there is anything you would like, please let us know and we will be glad to order it for you.  At this time these are the ones we have.

These are on backorder:

Back in stock - Scor-Tape in all sizes, including 5" and 6" width. If you haven't tried this tape yet, you really should. It is great for layering your papers and wonderful to use with your peel off stickers when you do the brushed velvet technique.

And finally, we want to let you know that all Easter related items are on sale for 50% off, through April 18!

See you soon!
