Just a quick note to remind you to support your local and privately owned scrapbook stores! They need your help with the down economy! JoAnn's, Michael's and Archiver's can make it. But, your local small stores need your support! Remember that they sell "quality" and not just quantity like the bigger chain stores. And they are more apt to help you get what you need when you can't find it! They want to support you too! Thanks for reading!

Gosh, even some of the online stores are taking a hit.

I have one LSS here but she refuses to carry anything any of her customers want so she's going under quickly. She basically carries all the same stuff the big box stores carry. She needs to carry different things.

I own my own store but I do my fair share of shopping elsewhere. I can't carry everything I like but I try. I have 3 other stores I frequent to share the wealth. :)

I definitely agree! I live in the Dallas area and you would think we would have a ton of scrapbook stores but I only know of one that is left and it's not very close to me, thus I don't go often. I end up relying on Hobby Lobby or JoAnne's but they rarely get new prints in. I have also started buying on Etsy, where I have my own shop (www.KuteKlipboardsByAmy.etsy.com) - I depend on new and different prints for my products as well as scrapbooking. So sad they have all gone under..........

Thanks for the reminder Sandy. I'm going to feel silly going in to pick up a few sheets of paper though, IF I can find what I need.

I know it. We have lost 3 in the last 2 years! And the bigger chains just have the same old same old all the time!

I try my best :) LOL



Actually, all the ones near my house closed a couple years ago...such a shame. I like going to LSS's more because they have a greater variety than big box craft stores....
