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. :p Took forever to just limit yself to 5 of them (for now..)

Thanks for the heads up, you enabler you!:)

RubberLady603 07-17-2012 03:38 PM

Sigh....jealous.... my TJ Max never has any of the cool stamping stuff!

felixdog 07-17-2012 08:36 PM

I was at TJ Maxx today too (in Washington state) and they didn't have anything. Lucky you!

Pleasantly surprised
 
I'm in MO and they had a good selection

parknslide 07-18-2012 07:09 PM

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

veggiegirlRD 07-19-2012 09:08 AM

Thanks for the tip! I scored at the TJMaxx near me in Michigan.

craftykarla 07-19-2012 11:08 AM

Will check out my nearest TJ's tomorrow - their goes the budget - and I got a stamp a stack class next week too.....

parknslide 07-19-2012 12:00 PM

Went back today & they had even more. Great score!

southernstamper 07-19-2012 01:16 PM

Sadly, not in Alabama

jellybeans 07-19-2012 04:14 PM

I'm in Washington :cry:.

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!
:D

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. :(

angel1971 07-21-2012 12:28 PM

None in NY. :(

parknslide 07-21-2012 07:56 PM

Found more in Brookfield, WI. They were up by the checkout. Clerk was putting more out. she said the shipment came in on Wednesday.

craftykarla 07-22-2012 08:26 AM

I also found mine at checkout - found 4 I didn't have. ; ) Don't tell Mindy!

Punches at TJ Max
 
I found Martha Stewart and E K Success punchs at T J Max. Most of them were at the front by the registers. Lots of Martha Stewert products.
This was in Iowa

Lmn 07-28-2012 02:51 PM

Thanks
 
Found several Martha Stewart and EK Success at OH store too. I had difficulty selecting, there were good choices. They were up by the registers at this store as well ;)

Janice13 07-28-2012 02:57 PM

Still none at mine - in PA.

parknslide 07-28-2012 06:46 PM

Found a bunch in Eau Claire WI. Lots more Martha Stewart ones than I had seen before. Back in the home goods section.

amydav 07-29-2012 08:47 AM

Can anyone tell mewhich MS punches you have seen?

parknslide 07-29-2012 09:58 AM

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.

1mom02 07-29-2012 09:23 PM

thanks, I'm a punch addict. Now I have yet another excuse to go check on my mom (local TJ Maxx moved to her town)

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.

stepha 07-30-2012 11:04 AM

Great score for everyone, alas none here on Long Island.

tcpuncher2588 07-30-2012 01:17 PM

Thanks for the heads up. Found some in Gaylord, MI mostly edgers but for $3.99 who cares. There were EK and Martha Steward.
thanks again.

jenbrett 07-30-2012 02:19 PM

Cincinnati Ohio
 
I Am in Cincinnati, Ohio and they had lots of EK Sucess and Martha Stewart. All really cheap $2.99 and $3.99.

ckhirrill 08-01-2012 06:15 PM

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.

Kristipapercreatio 08-02-2012 07:33 PM

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.

ckhirrill 08-04-2012 07:43 PM

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.

dmo 08-07-2012 12:57 PM

Finally made it to my local TJMaxx today. They had the punches up front by the registers. Lots of EK and Martha edgers. Picked up a couple. SCORE!

Zehra 08-07-2012 01:09 PM

i found My mind's Eye for 2.99 at TJ Maxx no EK though, this is in Farmington Hills MI

parknslide 08-07-2012 01:43 PM

EK and a few Martha Stewart punches were up by the registers yesterday at Marshalls on Madison's Westside store.

nancystamps 08-07-2012 03:13 PM

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.

felixdog 08-07-2012 04:09 PM

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.

Lazorkay 08-09-2012 12:06 PM

hmmm, I wonder if any of those have made it down here to Texas?!

felixdog 08-09-2012 12:49 PM

All of mine were okay and looked like the original packaging.

Petu2000 08-09-2012 12:57 PM

tons of product including TH District Market Oil Cloth bags in TJ MAxx at the Ridge Hill Mall in Yonkers! Checked all of my punches and some of them stuck but were fine after all.
