Tiffany and I made a whirlwind trip over to Murfreesboro today. We stopped by a new store in Smyrna and visited two in Murfreesboro. The one in Smyrna was TINY and I think I own more than they had in the store (seriously). The owner was very sweet so hopefully she'll have more inventory soon. The biggest store in Murfreesboro, Scrappin USA, had a nice inventory as always but we were very upset to realize how over-priced they were!!! We would have spent much more but they were so over-priced it was ridiculous. Their two-sided paper was ALL .90 cents each! Scenic Route, Junkitz, SEI, etc. It should all be less than that. The only paper that retails for over .80 is Wild Asparagus (that I know of). They were over $1.00 more on an item Tiff saw at a store in KY recently. Very irritating. They did have the new KI Christmas, the new Scenic Route Christmas, new Junkitz Christmas and Twitterpated by SEI. As much as it killed me, I had to get a little of the SEI. I just hate paying too much!!!!
The last store, Sassy Scrapper, in Murfreesboro was okay inventory wise but I was impressed by how friendly they were! They had some KI alpha soup opened for .30 per letter and I was able to spell out "fall" so that made me happy. I have wanted KI soup but been too cheap to buy a whole can. I'm tempted now that I've rummaged thru the letters. They are too cute. I got some American Crafts ribbon by the yard there (for considerably cheaper than they were selling it at the second store) and the January CK. January?! Kinda freaky but I couldn't pass it up. On first glance it seems to be a better issue than it has been lately.
We had a fun day - had a great dinner at a place called Don Pablo. Yum.
Here are my four 6x6 layouts I did at the crop last night. They will be displayed in our store window. I enjoyed scrapping 6x6 for a change!!!
See ya'll later!
