TONS of new stuff to start off October !!

Hi everyone !
First let me say thanks to everyone who came to the yard sale ... it was crazy !!! A lot of fun and a lot of stuff made it's way into other people's stashes ... hallelujah !!
Remember I am open Wednesday night this week from 6:30 to 8:00pm and again on Friday from 10am to 5pm. If you see anything that you want & can't get in, just leave me a comment or send me an email ... I'll save it for you !!
Now ... let's get down to all the new stock ... I am super excited !!

**SIZZIX !!!!
Awesome new Tim Holtz Decorative Strip dies ... only $19.99 each.

Brenda Walton's Woodland Deer $22.99
Tim Holtz's Holly, Beaded, and Snowflake Garlands  $19.99

Bigz Dies ... $19.99 each

Bigz XL die ... 3D Luminary $39.99

My favourite new Christmas die ... the skates !!! The die even cuts the little lace holes. $19.99.

Antlers ... Bigz & mini ! (19.99 and 16.99)

More wonderful mini dies $16.99 set.

more mini dies ... love the owl !!

And now .. FRAMELITS ~!
I am so excited about these. New from Sizzix & Tim Holtz, Framelits are a combination set of stamps and matching dies. Before this, if you wanted to cut out one of Tim's stamped images your options were to purchase a Silhouette machine & cartridges or good old scissors. Now, you cans stamp and then cut them out using the dies. Perfect !! Each set is $25.99 and contains multiple stamps and dies. You can cut out the various images as well as , in some sets, various parts of a single image in order to make a dimensional stamped image. So exciting !! I cannot wait to use them. Let's take a look ...

Penny Black - stamps & dies: just click on pictures for larger images.
A great car ... and lots of sentiments to go with it !

A Quickie !

Hi ! I am trying to quickly unpack the three boxes that arrived today. I have unpacked the new papers and will have them ready for sale tomorrow.

The journaling cards are wonderful !! And a 6x6 pad too.

 Baltzer Bits stencils ... sorry for the blurriness ... really cute little 4x4 stencils.
And amazing 6x6 stencils. I have been waiting and waiting for the head one ... love it !! 

And the pile grows ...

See this pile ? That is all stuff for the yard sale on Saturday ... and I still have a day and a half to gather ...

So, Here's this week's news ...

Hi !
I have been sorting & pricing for 4 days now ... the boxes are piled 5 feet high and 3 rows wide ... I have managed to stick a lot of stuff away in the last 18 years ... out of sight, out of mind, I guess. But it is going to be in sight on Saturday !! The sun will be shining and I will be loading tables with items priced from 10 cents to $5. And a few things (cash register, etc...) that are more but not many. Lots to choose from. There is : craft supplies for kids, every type of needlework supplies, ribbon, giftware, painting supplies, how to & pattern books, dollhouse & miniature supplies, some retail racks, peg hooks, some scrapbooking & beading , frames & framing supplies, framed prints & artwork, prints for framing, storage  ... and more. Sale starts at 9:30 .  I am working on getting the debit terminal outside ... somehow ... but it might be a good idea to bring cash too. I will update if I can get the terminal outside !!
(please note : the store will NOT be open that day .. Sorry)
And here is another sale !!! I really really need to clear out some more stock so I can finish rearranging the last part of the store , back where the stamps are. That is next week's task as well as crating an area for classes. So, to achieve that goal, I am further reducing the sale items.

this Friday
take another 50% off the sale price !!!!!
That will make many items 75% off !!!
For example , many of the Delica bead vials will now be just $1 !!
And many of the Spellbinder sets will be just $5 to $7.50 !!!
Once I start rearranging, much of the sale stock will be packed up so don't wait !!
Last chance !!!!
There is some new stock that just arrived 15 minutes ago but I am honestly not sure that I will get it unpacked this week - I'll try but next week for sure . Still lots of great things that I put out last week - Christmas papers, dies, beads --and the even bigger last chance sale . New stock next week and information on classes will be ready the week after that ! It is slowly but surely coming together !!!
Hope to see you this week !!!!

Just a quick edit ... right now I am unpacking & pricing a huge box of prints for the yard sale. We used to frame prints for the Acadia craft sale . We still have many left. I thought I would share some quick & blurry pix so you would have an idea of what I have. They are heavy thick prints ready to be framed or permaplaqued. I have 8x10, 8x20, 16x20 as well as smaller and much larger. The 8x20 & 16x20+ are only $1 each and the smaller ones are 50 cents. There is a big variety of subject matter ... seascapes, landscapes, horses, animals, vintage, sports, coffee, gardening, lighthouses, angels, primitive, art prints .... so much. Just thought they might be good for Christmas gifts !!
