time for markdown monday!

Markdown Monday deals are good at 
and at the Springfield store!

Thanks for your great support!

The customer garage sale held Friday and Saturday was an unqualified success! Thanks so much to the dozens and dozens of shoppers who came out in search of some great bargains.

We started off Friday with tables packed full of goodies from a variety of sellers, and by the end of the day Saturday...not so much! Let's just say that we had enthusiastic shoppers both days, including groups that traveled from as far away as Oklahoma and St. Louis just for a little retail (or garage sale) therapy.

The only other time we tried one of these events was back in 2006, and for some reason, we didn't try another one until now. With the success of this weekend, we'll definitely be hosting more. And based on quite a few people inquiring about taking part as sellers, we'll give it a try sometime in early fall, maybe in September. We'll check on dates and let you know as soon as possible.

Again, thanks so much from SG and from the ladies who participated as sellers -- they'll all be enjoying spending their profits for new goodies at SG!

gearing up for a customer garage sale next week!

I don't know about you, but my scrapping area needs a good going through every once in a while! Yesterday afternoon, I had some time to try to tame the mess I call my craft room, and I ended up with several boxes of items that I'll be selling at the customer (and owner - LOL!) garage sale we'll be hosting here at SG on Friday and Saturday, July 25-26.

One area that needed "thinning" was my Christmas stuff. After I looked through what I had, I realized that I probably wouldn't use some of the collections, so they are headed for the garage sale! Ditto for a whole drawer of (never used) wood-mounted rubber stamps (designs AND alphabets!). Other things are just odds and ends, but it really adds up, and I really enjoyed freeing up some space.

And for those of you who might be interested, Allison and I will both have "designer packs" in the garage sale. We've done quite a few layouts lately -- especially for CREATE magazine -- and we'll have packs of the remainder of some of the collections we've used -- lots of papers, and partial packs of matching die-cuts, stickers, brads, etc.

To join in the selling fun, just call us at 417-886-0440 to reserve your spot. An 8-foot table is $20 and half of an 8-foot table is $10 (plus you get the floor space underneath.) Later, you'll need to stop by SG to pick up an information sheet and the barcode labels for your packs of items.

Set up your stuff during business hours on Wednesday or Thursday, then let the garage sale fun start on Friday and Saturday. Just arrange your products, and then we'll take it from there. Best part? You'll get a store credit at SG, so you'll have a fun shopping spree to look forward to later!
