Default Seattle scrapbook/stamping stores

I'm going to be in Seattle for a few days soon, and I was wondering if anyone has any "must not miss" scrapbook/stamping stores to suggest. Thanks in advance!

My favorite is Impress. It is not far from SeaTac airport. They have a lot more than the website shows. Not far from there is the Paper Zone which is an excellent place to buy envelopes from, plus vellum and other goodies too. (Note: Impress has two other stores--one near University of Washington and one in Bellevue but the one in Tukwila is the larger store. Paper Zone is also in Seattle near the stadiums, Tacoma, etc but if you go to the Tukwila Impress you are just blocks from the Paper Zone so you can get a two for one visit)

I have also heard raves about Stampadoodle in Bellingham (if you're driving down from BC--otherwise it is 2 hours north on a good day). I have not made it to visit yet but those who have done so were very happy with what they found.

I second what bound4london said about Impress! The Tukwilla store is fab! I've also been to Stampadoodle in Bellingham many times and it's a great store. Loads of wood mounted stamps, paper, markers and supplies.

I also like Stampadoodle in Bellingham. Since others have mentioned Impress (the largest store) which is very near the Southcentre shopping centre, I presume you will be in that area. I would also check out the Joann and Michaels stores in that area, both of which are on Southcenter Boulevard almost across from one another. You won't believe the prices in Michaels (and the selection) compared to ours here. Then, of course, we don't have Joann.

Oh, and go armed with coupons...........

Don't forget about Monkey Love in Queen Anne, Stampin' in the Rain in Bothell, and Rubber Soul in Poulsbo (are they still there?).

Monkey Love Rubber Stamps is closing their store. Everything is on clearance. I don't know what date they will be open until.

ETA Looks like Rubber Soul in Poulsbo has also closed their retail store.

Stampin-In-The-Rain is still open, however. Country Village is a nice place to visit as well. I think they have their Farmers Markets on Fridays during the summer so maybe plan on stopping by on a Friday. There's an Italian restaurant right across the way from SITR's main doors that's really tasty, too.

I have to pitch my LSS, Hip 2B Square, in Snoqualmie, which is about 25 minutes east of Seattle. It's a super cute store and the owner Kim always does a great job of stocking it full of the latest product. One of the better scrapbooking stores I know in the area.

If you are going to be driving around in the NW much, and hour and a half south in Centralia, WA are two GREAT stamp and scrapbook stores. One is The Scrappy Stamper and the other is Cindy's Simple Stuff. Both have sites on the internet and both are definitely worth visiting.

My favorite Seattle store is A Muse. So many fun little things in store... it's like a candy shop for adults! I always spend far too much time there, not to mention $.

Well that's just sad about Rubber Soul and Monkey Love.

I would have to agree with everyone else... Impress and AMuse (see bottom of web page for address in Greenwood) are 'must not miss' if you're looking for stamps and inks
