CHA...A Success!!!

We had so much fun at CHA this past week!  It's always exciting being able to see all the newest releases up close and in person.  It's such a challenge deciding what companies to purchase from and we so wish we could but it all (doesn't everyone). We did our best and are still in the process of choosing some.  We'd like for you to check back as we list what we have purchased and post it once it is in the store. 

As an independent store, we realize the competition out there in terms of "Big Box" stores, I won't mention any names...but we know you, as the consumer could probably get some items you'd like sooner at one of these stores since vendors ship to these "big" accounts first.  We run into this all the time.  Angie and I would like to say THANK YOU so much for supporting us (the little guys).  We do not want you to think we place our orders late, when in fact, we may place our orders before these large chains.  In this industry they get top billing.  As frustrating as this may be, it is what it is, and we are asking you, our loyal customers, to be patient as we too will have the best product to choose from.  Being scrapbookers ourselves, we know just how difficult this may be, especially because we all get so excited about the "new" lines and product. 

Also, please keep in mind that we do listen to our customers.  A lot of our ordering comes directly from customer input.  This is the benefit of being an independent store.  Please let us know via email, facebook, etc. what you'd like to see in our store.  We do our best to accommodate you always.

The following is a list of companies already ordered from and there will be more to come:

Bella Blvd (of course)
Cosmo Cricket
Jillibean Soup
American Crafts
Simple Stories
Nikki Sivils
Maya Road
Fancy Pants
Echo Park
My Minds Eye
WeR Memory Keepers
Tim Holtz
Graphic 45
Pink Paisley
Little Yellow Bicycle
Crerative Imaginations
Queen and Company
Theresa Collins
and many more!!

Product has already started pouring in.  Here are two new lines we just put on the shelves:

Margarita - from American Crafts...and a TON of new Thickers...

 and WeR Memory Keepers - Spookville 
We have this complete line and it is super cute.  There is so much to this line (paper, felties, stamps, paper packs, die cuts, 3d chip, etc), you will have to come in to see it all!

Getting Super Excited!!!

So, many of you may already know that CHA is right around the corner.  For those of you that do not know, CHA stands for the Craft and Hobby Association, where all the new scrapbook line are on display!  Some companies keep this under wraps right up until the show, which is every July and January.  Next week we will be in Chicago shopping for new stuff to add to our collections!  It's a very exciting time for us.  So, if you have time, go on the Internet and search for CHA sneak peeks and see what you can find.  I've already seen soooo much greatness out there.  I'm loving the new BoBunny lines, Pebbles, Echo Park, Kaiser, WeR, and so many more!  We want you to tell us what you want to see in our store.  We really DO listen!!! 

And oh, The new Bella Blvd lines are to die for!!!!!!!!!  Go to their studio blog  and check back all week for their reveals!!!  We are getting it all!!!!!!!!!!!!  Here's a hint...

On another note, as many of you may know, CHA is right around the corner, and many companies are already showing sneak peeks of their new lines.  Be sure to let us know if there are lines you'd like to see at our store.  We want our customers to have what they want!!!

Just wait until after CHA.  This ribbon display will be adding sooooo much more with TONS of glitter and shimmer ribbon  (so I've been told).
