Default EK Success punches at TJMaxx

Went to TJMaxx today (in Murfreesboro, TN) and they had a TON of EX Success punches, the slim ones, big and medium, LOTS of designs, for $2.99 and $3.99 each. Took forever to just limit yself to 5 of them (for now..)

Yes, thanks for the tip (enabling). I bought 4 at my TJ's. They had a good selection---hard to choose.

I'm in Washington .

But I was thinking...at that price, they would be excellent for Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers for your scrappy friends and family.

I see a trip to Madison in my very near future. Thanks for posting. I am never sure that we have any of the good stuff at our local stores. Woohoo!

Default None in SLC

I checked the salt lake city store today and left empty-handed. The store has no recognizable paper crafting section but I've seen stamps by the checkout line before so I was hopeful. I found no paper punches of any kind.

Lots of the border ones and some of the stamp all over the page and also a few of the combo border & corner sets---those were around $9 a set but are like $30 plus in the store. The borders were both the card size and the wider scrapbook borders. Some were scalloped and some were the ones you laced ribbon through. Hope that helps. Each store I went to had different ones.

Default EK Sucess punches at TJ Max

First of all thanks for all the heads up regarding sales on stamping items.
I did go to TJ's looking for the punches in the craft area, none to be had.
I left very disappointed. Went again with a friend and found them next to
the cash register (odd place to put them). I went nuts. My friend could not
believe the prices, how much cheaper they were than in the craft stores.

Default Found 2 in NM

I found one MS punch all over the page (diamond ring pattern) and one EK XL slimline punch at the store in Farmington, NM. I bought the MS punch ($4) but left the EK punch because I didn't like it. And that says a lot because I LOVE punches. It punched a back-to-back swirl in two different sizes and I couldn't figure out what I would use that shape for. They are the line of shapes that can be linked to make garland. I think the EK punch was $3.

I was in Marshall's today and they had lots of Martha Stewart craft stuff including paper pads and punches. They also had EK punches...some hole punches and edgers. Marshall's is a sister store to TJ Maxx so if you one in your area check them out. They were up in the front by the registers.

Default Finally in SLC

I went back to the SLC store today hoping they were just slow to receive their shipment and I found several slim-line punches near the checkout. Edgers, garland punches, regular punches, and even a triple punch. Some MS too but I like the small size of the new EK punches. Whew.

I picked up a music border punch (EK) for $3.99 yesterday at my Maxx. I wish I had looked at it closer though, if you punch the bottom of your card the notes are upside down! I didn't really want to paper piece with it.

Today I made my third trek into TJ Maxx and they finally got some in. Only one EK Success (swirl) and all the other MS. I picked up six although there were more. (I almost took the music border punch but put it back--thanks for the heads up on that!)

I found quite a few at several different fl stores. I was so excited but now I'm beginning to wonder if they are rejects or returned items, because almost all of mine do not work! Now I need to use wax paper and sand paper on each one see if it works and then if not match up my reciepts, packaging and return them. I Bought them from 4 or 5 different tjmaxx's. One of my Martha Stewart ones was completely broken right out of the package and of course I had ripped open the packaging on that one. I am going to try and return it anyway. Are any of you having issues with these punches? Sorry to be a downer on such a potential great find.

So sorry yours didn't work well. I got 3 of them, all EK Success, and they work great. Maybe you just got a bad batch. Hope they can be returned. That's a bummer.
