Default Do I Need Prima Flowers?

Remember those little milk bottles full of Prima flowers that were all the rage five years ago? Well, I have about six bottles of them, and I'm trying to figure out if I should put them in my garage sale tomorrow.

What do you think? Keep or sell?

I hardly use mine, but you know I've been seeing a lot of the dress-up sizzlet dress die done with flowers covering the skirt. If you have that, maybe you could use them!

I got rid of almost all of mine a long time ago. The few that I kept will probably make their way onto altered items, as opposed to cards. Maybe think about what else you might use them for and if it's worth it to take up valuable storage space with them? Another thought: I put the flowers in baggies and kept the bottles, because the bottles (truthfully) were why I bought them in the first place!

I got rid of mine awhile back and hadn't thought of them until you just now mentioned them. I haven't missed them. I figure if I do a project where I need them (doubtful) I can always find more.

I guess it would depend if I used them. It sounds like you are fine with letting them go. Maybe keep a few aside and sell the rest. Best of both worlds. I have a small amount oif flowers, but mostly make my one with dies.

I'm like Winnie - I have some of the flowers that I bought years ago, but don't use them much. They aren't taking up much room, so I've just kept them "in case." I also like to make my own flowers using dies and punches and have fun coordinating the flowers using my papers. I think when I originally bought the Prima flowers, we didn't even have the Cuttlebug to work with!

I'm also having a garage sale and they are going in the pile! Along with a ton of stamps I will never use. And a bunch of craft magazines too.

I don't think you will miss them at all.

I just put a couple bottles of them in a package to send to a new stamper who doesnt have much. I have had them for a couple years and havent touched them.
Blessings

Got rid of all of mine, but kept the bottles.

I don't know why, but I decided to keep them. I'm a sucker for pretty things, and those bottles have always looked so sweet sitting on a shelf. I'm moving to a new house in a new town (Pittsburgh, get ready for me!) on the 31st, and my new house has a first floor den that I'll be using as my craft room. TONS of built in cabinets and shelves. I'm so excited! Maybe those bottles will inspire me to get creative with them this summer. I did unload a lot of other craft supplies at the sale, so I'll be traveling a little lighter!
