DRS Designs is in Bethel, CT which is heading toward the New York line in western CT...if you're looking to make a day trip out of it, it's a cute little town with places to eat and walk around. DRS is in a restored Victorian home and they make the stamps there! www.drsdesigns.com

Enjoy your trip!

In Westbrook which is not to far from New London (25 miles) there are two stores side by side Scrapbook Clubhouse and Beautiful Impressions. Beautiful Impressions is a wonderful stamp store and the people that work there are great. Scrapbook Clubhouse, another great store with great personnel has lots of scrapbook supplies as well as some stamps. Both are great stops. I hope you enjoy!

Where are you?? You should definitely stop by!!! It's such a warm and cozy shop! They mainly sell their own images but you can find a few other stamp lines sprinkled on the shelves as well. Definitely worth the trip!

I'm no help there since I'm in the general Hartford area. But if you find yourself heading to the northwest end of the state, there's a great scrapbook store in Canton.

This is a great thread!! I'm from CT and I'm up there visiting family regularly and didn't even know about the store in Bethel (I grew up next door in Danbury) I'm going to have to put some of these stores on my list of things to do the next time I head up there! Thanks!

If you visit the Danbury, CT area a trip to Pawling, NY is worthwhile. It is very quaint, has an award-winning baker/restaurant (McKinney & Doyle) and a wonderful stamp/scrapbooking store named Around the Corner (which is located around the ... far ... corner from McKinnney & Doyle.)

And there is a great place for dinner and entertainment called The Towne Crier Cafe.


Here are links to the places mentioned above:

McKinney & Doyle:

Around the Corner Stamp & Scrapbook Store:
http://www.aroundthecornershop.com/

The Towne Crier Cafe:

Hope to help and ...

Happy Crafting!
