O' Scrappy Day!
So today I went to the Scrapbook Super Station yesterday morning for their Scrapbook Yard Sale. I got there right after their doors opened, so I wasn't standing out in the cold like last time - being the 50th person in line! If you ever get a chance to check one of them out - they are usually pretty awesome and hectic - women wielding baskets trying to get that bargain that is someone else's discards. I have developed a method to the madness when I go - no coat, purse or basket (slows you down) - cash, debit, id and car key in pocket (yard sale is cash and carry only). So here's my stash that I managed to grab from the yard sale. I got an unused 12x12 Basic Grey album with other BG goodies stashed inside (using this for my wedding album), brand new Making Memories craft apron, a new red cloth 8x8 album, Karen Foster new mini album, K&Co kit to make a decorated file folder - half completed, an acrylic Provo Craft Stamp, buttons, another little album, a photo organizer (not pictured) and a sheep ornament. Ornament you say - well it's felt and can be used as an embellishment - besides I have the ribbon that matches him....anyhow all this for $19.00 - the most expensive item was the BG scrapbook at $10. Yippee!!! I love a bargain - but wait there's more! I managed to score this: for 75% off! Regularly $169.99 - 75% = $42.50! I was super crazed yesterday - had I off had more moola I would have bought another one and sold it to a friend or if they didn't want it - ebay! I got a few other misc items yesterday from clearance since it was all 75% off because of the yard sale. Next time the yard sale roles around I'm not only going to shop it - I have a box full of stuff - I'm waiting to unload and get credit to go toward something new! So I just had to share my amazing deal of the day! The cats make out too when I go to the scrapbook store - they end up with a new hideout for the day, or at least until they start to destroy it.
