The Doll House and Stamp Shack are closed.

Memories & Beyond (75th Street Downers Grove) is owned by a previous SU-Demo -- not alot of stamping stuff, but TONS for scrapbooks / crops/ classes, etc.

There is also Stamp Thyme in Lockport I think -- MAJOR stamp store!

I don't know where Oswego is, but since someone mentioned Naperville, I heard on another message board that there's a new scrapbook store that just opened on rt 59.

Cherish Creative Scrapbooking
630-428-7770

I don't know how much stamping stuff they have, but I'm planning to check it out soon!

There is a very nice stamping store in Batavia, which is a little bit of a jog- but very worth it and they have wonderful classes.

THE STAMPERS CORNER (IL)
3 S BATAVIA AVE
BATAVIA, IL 60510
UNITED STATES
Phone: 630-406-8642

Great quilting (fabric) store there as well!

Please tell her to join Bev Barton's link for the Illinois SCS gatherings! They are wonderful! She is the hostess with the mostess!

I thought I heard that the Batavia store Shelly just posted about closed this spring. Check first before heading over there.

The Cottage Stamper in St Charles is also a bit of a jog but a nice little store geared more for stampers vs scrapbookers. I think I remember seeing scrapbbooking stuff but I was really focused on the stamping and papercrafting end of things.

They offer quite a few classes. When I was there one of the owners was there and was very helpful and friendly. The store is not as large as Stamp Thyme in Lockport, but they have a very good selection and owner was much friendlier and was willing to order a few things.

Hey! Thanks for all the information. I live in Warrenville - just north of Naperville - and didn't know about some of these stores.

The Stamp Shack was my second home before Glynda decided to retire. NowI do most of the non-SU shopping at Archiver's and Memories and More - both are excellent. There are also Michael's and Jo\Ann's right around the corner from the Naperville Archiver's.

Hi - welcome to the area - I live in Aurora and one of my friends is an SU demo - she lives off Rt. 47 and Galena - far west side of Aurora, but mailing address is Sugar Grove - also have a friend on Palace St in Aurora who is another SU demo. If you want their addresses, please let me know.

Stamp Shack in Naperville, Stampers Corner in Batavia, and Luella Lishnish's Luscious Little Stamps in Oswego have ALL CLOSED - which sent me into major withdrawal. I have had to rely on SU, Hobby Lobby & Michaels to help settle me down - but they only dull the hunger. I didn't know about the stamp stores in St. Charles - guess I'll be making a visit there SOON. I feel a relapse coming on.

Thanks for the info from the other posters.

Well I hope some of you will come to our next SCS gathering in Illinois! The one we are having this month is closed.... I will be hosting another one in March I think. Keep your eyes open for it! It's not JUST for demos!

That's the only stamp store I've ever been to besides HL and M.
