I've only shopped there a couple of times, to be honest I forget they are around since the Food Lion is just up the street from me and I'm usually too lazy to venture much further! My MIL loves their stuff especially since she's retired and on a strict budget.

Thanks for the info! Now, where is this store?

discount office items has free shipping at $75 and that shouldn't be too hard to get. Under 144 will be $1.81 each. over that is $1.74 each. over 288 would be $1.69 each.

I plan on getting at least 24 myself. If six of us each order 24 that will get us the $1.74 price tag

I will place the order early next week.. no later than say Wednesday AM to give everyone a chance to see and opt in if they want.

DM, I'll take 24.

Thanks!

DM I will take 24

So...deadline to PM me your vote is tomorrow 7pm, but don't do it before midnight tonight to make sure all cards are posted.

-- leave it to the step id to throw a wrench in the works!!! lol

Jeanene, I can't believe you did that. It is really pretty! What PTI stamps are they? Nice work. I don't think it is fair to ask us to vote on these cards because it is just too hard. There is not one ugly in the bunch! They are all 10's in my book. You all do a great job. Kathi and Mary, can't wait to see what you come up with. Love them all. Posting pics of the swap cards?? Anyone?

Jeaneen the only two I know of are in Glen Burnie and Pasadena but there may be one closer to you. The Glen Burnie one is in the same shopping center as A.C. Moore, near the MVA. The Pasadena one is about 2 miles south of Michael's on Ritchie Hwy., right past Jumper's Hole Road.

Thanks Stacy! I agree, these challenges are making me come out of my comfort zone and making me think!

Glad to see nana is enjoying herself! Your mom is a very sweet lady, I'm enjoying getting to know her!
