I'm sure everyone has heard of the card in a box. We now have two different sizes of the precut and scored box from The Paper Cut. All you need to do is decorate it. When folded for mailing the sizes are A2 (which is the standard size card) and a 5-3/4 x 5-3/4 square (which will take a 6x6 envelope)  Check out the beach card in a box sample...

Also, from The Paper Cut we have these specialty papers:  HG05 Stardust Holographic 81/2x11, HG06 Tinsel Holographic 81/2x11, HG01 Confetti Holographic 81/2x11, HG03 Crackle Holographic, 324 Wave, 749 White Pearl Linen, 745 Gold Pearl Linen and 748 Natural White Pearl Linen.
Our class on Saturday, August 22 with Melinda using the new dies from The Paper Cut has filled, however, she has agreed to do an afternoon class if we have enough overflow. Check for the details under our class schedule

Tim Holtz's Bird Crazy stamps and the new coordinating dies are winging their way to Stamper's Alley and should arrive soon. Keep an eye on the blog and/or your email for news of their arrival. 

Also, remember to mark your calendars for the September Used Stamp Sale - Saturday, September 19. More info here.


September Used Stamp Sale Info

Many of you always look forward to our Used Stamp Sale in September. 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, September 19 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, September 26. 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 September 12. No refunds will be issued after September 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.
