Default Online one-stop shop?

Does anyone have a favorite online one-stop shop for crafting supplies?

Here's my latest dilemma One site has every individual Distress Ink pad, including the new colors in both full-size pads and minis, at super cheap prices but you have to wait 3 to 4 weeks (!) to get your order. Another site has some dies I want at exceptional prices, but only five of those inks. Another site has perfect jute string and sequins at fabulous prices but no ink and hardly any dies. Joann.com has good sales and frequent shipping specials but they don't have any of the new Distress Ink colors or a super wide range of dies. Arrrgh.

I'd love to find one site that has a wide range of supplies at good prices and shipping costs that aren't crazy where I can get most of what I need (sometimes Amazon is the place but a lot of times, for specialty craft supplies, I've noticed it isn't). Guessing I'm looking for a unicorn sprinkled with glitter?!

I guess we are all different. I myself love shopping around and buy many things from many places.

If I ordered from just one place, I would be second guessing myself all the while, and wondering if I could have found the stuff cheaper somewhere else, lol.

And, actually, I kind of like the randomness of getting packages from different places, on different days, and not all in one big box at the same time!

PS I shop at several grocery stores, too, not just one.

bugga, I feel that But are you not tortured by all of the shipping though? $5.95 here, $8.99 there, it all adds up... ergh. But those little packages cheer me up so much!

Poppy, I've been making cards for quite a while, and do have lots of stuff stockpiled. I'm retired and try to watch my pennies, so I don't buy that much anymore as I have lots of basics.

I'm still very happy with my original Cuttlebug which is quite old (like me, ha!) and I love my Making Memories trimmer which I've had for years and years.

I shop Amazon Prime whenever I can find what I want there, and I also like 123Stitch because they have quite a variety of stamps, and very reasonable shipping.

Also, I sometimes find things at Overstock, and their shipping is very reasonable also. I shop on ebay if the shipping is cheap, too.

We have 4 or 5 Hobby Lobby's in my town as the founder is from here. Also a very nice Joann Superstore, and quite a few Michaels, so I use those coupons whenever I can.

I just refuse to pay big shipping costs that are almost as much as the items!

There are very few stores that will have a wide range of items simply because it is so expensive to maintain that type of inventory. Your best bet would be to group your orders by type..ie. all inks from one place, etc.

Scrapbook Supplies, Rubber Stamping & More - Frantic Stamper is my nearly one-stop shop; she seems to increase the range all the time and provides excellent service. She's had my loyal custom for years, ever since she once rang me to check something on an order. No coupons and no major sales, but still my favourite online site.
I just need for the € exchange rate to improve before I can shop my wishlist there!!

That would be the glitter unicorn lol.

I do go different places b/c I am a sales *****. If you have stuff from my wishlist cheap cheap I'm there! I order less often, do bigger orders so I get free ship too...though these days several places have dropped free shipping to $25 in stuff which very easy to hit.

It would be impossible to stock every thing I think. I sure would not want to have to do the annual inventory lol.

Some bigger gen distributors you could try:
scrapbook.com
scrapbookingwarehouse
scrapmart

I like 123stitch too.

But I also shop everywhere...small generals, mfg direct, box stores, etc.

Remember something about shipping costs...
a) you have a cost of shopping-your gas, time, etc
b) in the bad weather...way better to come to my door.

I agree with a lot of the recommendations here, along with Ellen Hutson LLC.

But I also agree that it's nearly impossible to find one-stop shopping. When I regularly purchased stamping supplies, it was a constant complaint for me. I wouldn't need much but I SO wanted to be able to find it all in one place. Often it would be really popular items, too, so I didn't think that it should be that hard, lol!

Now, I'm finding the same thing with the very few polymer clay items that I'm looking for... oh well, I'm used to it . I bit the bullet and order just a couple of items from different stores today.

FranticStamper is my go to site. In addition to the wide range of products and superior customer service, she adjusts the shipping cost if she can send it in a smaller package. Like Cook22 said, no major sales but I don't shop based on sales but for the amazing service.

I used to buy stuff from Scrapbooking Supplies | Discounted Scrapbooking | Scrapbook Supplies because of the wide variety of items and fair pricing. It has a lot more to choose from than my local JoAnn's but you'll still find you have to shop elsewhere for some of the more specialty items.

Whoops... the link overtook the words of the store. It is
scrapbooking-warehouse.com

All good suggestions Scrapbooking Warehouse was the one with the long delay in shipping, but they have so much at great prices and their shipping is reasonable so I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet

They don't have everything but they have lots of dies, paper, ink, tools, etc. and have very fast shipping and reasonable rates and offer discounts every month if you sign up for their emails: creativeplaystamps.com. It's my go-to place and I've been very happy with them for years.

Default Creative Play Stamps

Creative Play Stamps has tons of dies, looks like all the distress inks, Not sure if new inks are in there. DP from all sorts of companies,
Everything is 10% off retail and free shipping over $60.00. It will tell you what the postage is for your zip code which is based on weight.

No they don't have sequins or ribbon of any kind. But I'm pretty happy with them. They will tell you if something is "sold out" which usually means it's just out of stock. They will email when available.

Like the others have said no place has everything.

I like a cherry on top as well, because if I just want a few things, they have a first class shipping option (frantic stamper, too, although I think she might still have to manually refund you). I like Ellen Hutson and Simon Says Stamp for a lot of things, but I HATE that there's only one shipping choice for $8. (Unless you get the free shipping level, which I never do.)

Frantic Stamper is my go to online shop, most of the time. Fran carries nearly everything - copics, Tim Holtz stuff, lot of patterned paper, glitter, ribbon, buttons, stamps from many vendors - Penny Black, Taylored Expressions, Impression Obsession, Hero Arts, MFT etc and die cuts , paints - she is my go to online stamp shop. Amazing service and she tries to hard to save you on shipping costs.

My favorite place to get Distress Ink and Copic is Oozak.com | eCustomer Service at its Best!. He has some dies and stamps also. Depends on the brand you are looking for. And the shipping is free at $50 (and fast, unless you order backorder/preorder items)

Another vote for Frantic Stamper. She has a huge warehouse (that I visited when I lived in Oregon), but she is there personally packaging and answering the phone. One of the nicest people you could ever meet with a really wide variety of product. I've picked up my order personally several times, and since I saved HER shipping, she usually throws in a punch or two or extra stamps to show her appreciation. Who else does that?!

Wow-that is nice of Frantic!

I just thought of something. Some places do proprietary stuff...like Simon Says-which I dont think you are going to find anywhere else except maybe ebay. So right there, we would have to pop around to get all things possibly.

I have to go check out several places I havent heard of! Fun!

I usually buy from Joann.com. Since I live in Hawaii, shipping costs are critical. Joann is one of the few places that does free shipping with a large enough order. They do not have everything. Big box stores seem to get new items much later. Scrapbook.com seems to stock a lot of different items I use, but shipping costs are prohibitive. I have had good luck with other sites if I desperately want something and can tolerate the high shipping costs. I became a Close to my Heart demonstrator to get a discount that I apply to shipping.

I'm afraid I'm with the ladies that shop all over the place. If I want, like, or need it I try to find the least expensive price but if that doesn't work out I'll buy the item anyway. Over the last year I have purchased quite a few dies and they all come from different company's. The price varies but not by much and then you have to factor in shipping. Actually I pay more attention to that then the price of the item!

Always good to know. We have very few actual brick and mortar stores left here. I do order from some of the local girls but then I pay a bit more, still supporting local.
I have in the past ordered from Scrappin Great Deals and have had wonderful service. I have not been buying much so not making the "free shipping"

Yes that was it been gone almost two years I think. The staff still have facebook page to enable us giving us leads. I miss the classes there. A few places have classes but during working hours and in the north end of the city. Edmonton still has a number of stores, just never near where I stay when I go lol.

Great, ladies...last week we are talking about purging and budgets, this week we are talking about where to go to shop, and you send me to Frantic Stamper. Now, there are three more companies I need to check out in terms of products...you enablers, you! (and thank you)

I hop all over the place...if online, it depends on what I need and how fast. If I'm browsing, then I wasn't something like scrapbooking.com or Frantic Stamper. If I am looking for the perfect sentiment...Quietfire Designs, hands down.

Off to do a bit more window shopping....

I always shop at Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson. And that's from Canada. They have reasonable shipping rates and a wide range of products. While not a one-stop ship by any means, I have to give a shout out to Scrapbooksteals.com I buy a LOT of stuff there. I also love Blitsy.com and find they are carrying more and more across many types of crafting.

Off the top of my head, I can think of only two sites where I pay shipping: Stampin' Up and Simon Says Stamp.

The other places I shop offer free shipping with a minimum purchase. I keep wish lists on those sites (or Pinterest, if they don't have the wish list feature on their site) so I can easily meet the minimums when I go to shop (which is when they have a sale!). Another advantage of keeping a wish list is that I often have fallen out of "oh, I neeeeed this," by the time there's a sale and I'm ready to shop.

Thanks for that tip, Rebecca! I used to shop a fair bit on blitsy.com until they raised their shipping rates. Looks like scrapbooksteals.com shipping is only $2.99 for US addresses, and that is a steal

I'm glad you mentioned Blitsy. I like them, too, and they are carrying more new and current "stuff". I was going to come back and mention them, then got busy and forgot. Thanks for picking that one up.

I like Simon Says Stamp, you can get quite a variety of things there and shipping isn't too bad. I've also recently been using Hallmark, good selection and fast shipping.
I stopped shopping at blitsy a while back. They really upped their game as far as carrying products and their prices, but their shipping rates often made things more expensive than many other online shops. I wrote to ask about their shipping and they replied they only charged what it actually cost to send the item, but I struggle with that. I've had a stamp set mailed for $1.00 from a stamp company and Blitsy's shipping starts at $5.95. I don't like feeling any company is trying to make a profit off me for shipping; I'll pay to have it sent to me, but that should be it.

The best deal on brand-spanking-new products is at Marco's paper.
http://www.marcopaper.com/

If you PRE-order you get it for 20% off and with free shipping, no minimum. Once it's in stock the deal is gone. I've been getting the new distress ink color each month at a discount and without paying any shipping!

I also just ordered this embossing folder. I won't get it until September, but what a deal. Plus, by September it will probably be a happy mail surprise.
Tim Holtz Alterations | Texture Fades? Embossing Folder - Quilted (Expected in September 2015) - Marco's Paper

A stamping friend led me to this site and my wallet has never been the same....

Another advantage of keeping a wish list is that I often have fallen out of "oh, I neeeeed this," by the time there's a sale and I'm ready to shop.

I comparison shop, bide my time, and keep lists.
Simon usually has a coupon for 7.99 off an order of $75 or more-- that is how you get "free" shipping from them.

I know they have it once in a while. I didn't realize it was "usually." Thanks for letting me know! I'll keep my eyes open for it. I'm on the mailing list and figured I'd catch it in a newsletter, but maybe since it's common, they don't say much about it.

My 2 online favorites are ellenhutson.com and emmaspaperie.com.
Both have a wide variety and great customer service.
