I am just back from my shopping trip and cannot thank you enough!
Rocky Hill was great, she was very sweet!
Farmhouse Memories - rachel is a sweetheart, and I found some different things there (ask her about the color-cored paper if you go there!)
From the Heart - Ruthie was there for me (Rache's sister) - another doll. Got lots of great paper, also had a nice selection of scrapbook stuf! Told Ruthie I heard about the store thourhg SCS. (In fact, told all o fthem that!)
Found Creekside but no evidence of any adult.
Barbara is also lovely and has SO many beautiful stamps! Told her you referred me, Cyndi!
Kings Homestead was a bust for me. They had paper, but nothing I can;t get here. And, to my surprise, it was actually mroe expensivce (the DP was) than here! Go figure! i was in tourist he$$.
Country Cottage - also a doll, also had TONS of stamps!
Finally found L&L just before a rainstorm hit...lots to go through anbd byt the time I was done the rain had passed.
She is moving, she hopes by Thanksgiving...
Pages in Time - great SB store - wish ours were that complete! Laurie is so nice, too!
Flower & Craft Warehouse, my reaosn for going - TOTAL BUST FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 4 YEARS!!!! They a re not retocking paper on a regular basis as they do not have the demand for it. In fact, even my Dh noticed their inventory was about 1/3 of what it was this time last year. it was the ,most disappointing store of the trip.
So, I got less than I thought but still mroe than I should have,
Thanks to everyone, can't wait for a repeat trip next year. FYI...GPS is a MUST when finding these places if you aren;t local!
